Margarete Frances Teaford

   Margarete Frances Teaford, 91 of Sand Ridge Rd, Racine, Ohio was called to the Kingdom of God on March 28th at her residence.  She was a devoted housewife, mother and farm wife.  Margarete was born April 9, 1929 to the proud parents, Melvin Bryant and Christena Caroline (Gintear) Grimm of Syracuse, Ohio.
   She married Raymond Clifford Teaford on June 11, 1949 and they raised four children; Kathryn (Cecil) See, M. Suzanne Bentz, Forrest Raymond (Launa) Teaford Sr., and Cloist Eugene Teaford.
   Margarete had a special love for flowers and grew many colorful varieties.  She was particularly proud of her giant ball dahlias and tall snapdragons.  Every summer large gardens of produce were planted, harvested, and preserved for family use.  She helped raise farm animals to butcher.  Margarete worked in the hay fields along side her husband and children.  Raising beef cattle always demanded repair of wire fencing.  She could fix damaged fence sometimes better than some younger men.  She never used a chain saw, but she surely could swing an ax with exactness.  Well into her seventies she split firewood for the wood burner with ease.
   In addition to farm work, Margarete baked biscuits, rolls, pies, cakes, and cookies. Her specialty cake was "Grandmother's Buttermilk Cake." Every Christmas, she baked the "Eggless, Butterless, Milkless Cake"; often referred to as Depression Cake.
   Margarete instilled many of her talents and work ethics into all of her children. She was a proud mother of every one of them.
   She was preceded in death by both parents; her husband; son, Cloist; two grandsons: Jarrod Bentz and Joshua Weaver; all three brothers; Robert, Floyd, and Reese; several sisters and brothers in law, and several aunts and uncles.
   Besides her two daughters and son, Forrest, she is survived by granddaughters: Darlene (D.J.) Hoschar, Amy See, Sarah (J.R.) Hupp, and Elizabeth Teaford; grandsons, Forrest Raymond, Jr. and Daniel Teaford; four great granddaughters; five great grandsons; a special sister in law: Martha Belle Meadows; and several nieces and nephews.
