Margaret D. Broxie 1929-2022
Margaret Deliah Broxie 92 of Pittsburgh Pa. died peacefully on Friday, April 1, 2022. She was born on June 23, 1929, to the late James and Harriet Jackson. Margaret or “Dee” as she was affectionately called was well known for her kindness and generosity. She grew up in Garfield and graduated from Peabody high school in 1947. Margaret was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on February 3, 1957, and proved to be faithful until her death. The one thing she always did was thank Jehovah for helping her to cope with any situation that came up in her life. She was thankful for having a long life and she even lived longer than both of her parents combined.
Her personality drew people to her. She was always willing to reach out to others. If you had an hour or 2 to kill, all you had to do is call Margaret Broxie as she could hold a conversation for hours. She was also known as a flashy dresser who loved her different outfits. All her life she cared for others and her desire was to be a nurse. She worked at Shadyside hospital as a young woman and during this time she developed her nursing skills and later became the primary caregiver to her husband Gilbert Sr. until his death last year.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her sister, Mary Marshall. She is survived by her son, Gilbert Jr (wife Lorraine), and her grandson, Aaron (wife Katoya) as well as 3 great-grandchildren, Jalen, Daniel, and Kiyah. Also surviving her are a host of nieces, nephews, and friends. Job 14:1-2 states: “Man born of woman is short-lived and filled with trouble. He comes up like a blossom and then withers away. He flees like a shadow and disappears.” Margaret’s blossom slowly withered away, but shortly, we will see her again in the resurrection that God has promised.
There will be a memorial service held via zoom on Saturday, April 23 at 2:00 PM. For further information, please send your inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
