Margaret Pettigrew


Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with deep sadness that we inform you that our sister Margaret Pettigrew, surviving spouse of the Rev. William Pettigrew, died on Sunday, January 8, 2017. Margaret served alongside her husband at the Boyes Hot Springs and Walnut Creek: Walnut Avenue churches. Following her husband’s retirement, Margaret served as a Conference Lay Minister at the Sonora and Red Bluff churches.

She is survived by Terry Haines, a relative of her late husband, whom Margaret embraced as a son. Condolences may be sent to Pat Shank Elam, Margaret’s close friend and estate executor, at 560 Santander Drive, San Ramon, CA  94583.

Memorial gifts may be made in Margaret’s name to the Manna program of Pittsburg UMC, 153 West Leland Road, Pittsburg, CA  94565, or to any local animal shelter.

Let us continue to give God thanks for Margaret’s life and witness and hold the Pettigrew family close in prayer.  In our living and in our dying, we belong to God! (Romans 14:8)
