BRIDGETON, N.J. -- Margaret Langston Washington, the daughter of the late Benjamin and Georgia Langston, found eternal rest on Oct. 8, 1999, in a local hospital in Bridgeton, N.J.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Deacon Lindwood Washington, and brother, Isaiah Langston. A native of Norfolk, she received her education in the city's public schools. Her work experiences include employment with the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, the Greyhound Corporation, Norfolk Community Hospital, and Norfolk city schools from which she retired in 1976.

Throughout her 88 years, Margaret served her community, her church and her family. She served her community through her association, the Beacon Light Civic League, serving as the league's recording secretary. Affiliation with the Wheaton Order of Eastern Star Lodge No. 73 and the Daughters of Elks are other instances of her assuming social and civic responsibility.

She was deeply rooted in the ministries of First Baptist Church Berkley where she joined as a child. She was the church's first convener of the Deaconess Board, a member of the Reserve Usher Board, the Women's Missionary Union, the Dean-Munden Bible Class and a life member of the Virginia Baptist State Convention. She gave of herself at her home church until her health forced her to relocate with her daughter and son in Bridgeton, N.J. Carrying out the mandate of the Baptist Covenant, Margaret united with the Mount Zion A.M.E. Church in Bridgeton and served there as long as her health prevailed as a deaconess.

We mourn her absence from us in life, however, we, as did Nanny, live in hope and rely on the promises of God's Word, daughter, Joyce W. Hursey; son-in-law, James S. Hursey; an adopted daughter, Mary W. Jordan; a sister-in-law, Elizabeth Bowser of Philadelphia; granddaughters, Joni Hursey-Wingate of Virginia Beach, Jennifer Hursey of Norfolk; six grandchildren who reside in Pennsylvania, Pa.; grandson-in-law, James Wingate; great-grandchildren, Jame Gregory and Joyi Young; a cousin, Earl Langston; and many relatives and friends. Surely we are blessed with precious memories because of the life Nanny lived.

A funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday at First Baptist Church Berkley with the Rev. William Tyree, pastor, officiating. Interment will be in Roosevelt Memorial Park. Her body will be placed in the church from noon to 1 p.m.
