Margaret Waldrop Harbert, age 95, formerly of Oakland, Florida, died peacefully at her home in Wilmington on October 27, surrounded by family. Born in Elba, Alabama, she grew up in central Florida and married Gene Harbert in April 1948. When Gene served in the Air Force, he and Margaret lived in Wilmington, Ohio; Virginia; Maryland; Alaska; and Texas. When he retired, they settled back in Florida, but in 2001, they moved to Wilmington to be closer to their children. Margaret loved to travel; and she was proud to have been in every one of the fifty states as well as in Germany and Austria. Margaret was a talented seamstress and cake decorator; and she was an avid reader, especially of women’s history. Margaret is survived by their three children—Linda Madison (Russell), David Harbert (Becky), and Sandy Petrulionis (Joe); five grandchildren—Chad Custis (Nikki), Kelly Hieatt (Mike), Tara Harbert, Jason Harbert (Alexis), and Laurel Petrulionis; and one great-grandchild—Carsyn Custis. A private graveside service in Wilmington is planned. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Crossroads Hospice of Cincinnati, 4380 Glendale-Milford Road, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45242.
