Margaret S. Hetrick
Margaret S. Hetrick, 92, of Liverpool, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at her home with her loving family by her side.
Margaret was born on July 28, 1930, in Lewistown, Pennsylvania, a daughter of the late Carl E. and Nancy Jane (Tate) Stitt. On October 21, 1956, she married her loving husband, Warren E. Hetrick, who entered eternal rest on September 25, 2006.
In the mid to late 1950’s, Margaret was employed at McCrory’s Five and Dime Store on the square in Lewistown. Her life was dedicated to being a wife, mother, grandmother, and homemaker.
She was a member of God’s Missionary Church in Newport where she served as their church organist for many years. Margaret also taught children’s Bible stories for their junior church where she was known for her famous flannel graph stories.
Margaret and her sisters had a passion for music. They enjoyed singing gospel music and were known as the “Stitt Sisters Trio”. Margaret’s many hobbies included sewing, cooking, reading, and writing poetry. Her favorite and most precious times were spent with her loving family.
