April 16, 1943 – September 27, 2022

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Margi on September 27, 2022 in Bellingham, Washington.

Margi is predeceased by her parents and husband Clark Fleming. She is survived by her son Brad Lawson (Vickie), stepchildren, Chris Fleming (Mindy), Carol Benson (Bob), and Cathy Hignite, her sister Irene Mason and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and a great many friends.

Margi had a special friendship with Judy Gower and Sharon Racy for over 50 years. They will miss her great smile and friendship. She also had a special place in her heart for Tammy and Mark Huff, with whom she and Clark spent most holidays alongside the grandchildren.

Margi grew up in Harris, California. As a young adult she moved to Garberville where she met Robert Yeats, they were soon married and tragically Bob died of cancer at the young age of 41. Margi then met and married Clark Fleming and lived a very happy and full life until Clark’s death. They were married for 33 years.

Margi was a school secretary at Trinity Valley and Hoopa High until her retirement. Margi was always active in fundraisers and volunteered at many different organizations in Willow Creek. She was an active part of the community she loved.

Margi moved to Point Roberts in 2016 to be closer to her son. Again, she took up the mantle and volunteered at the Point Roberts Senior Center for two days a week. She helped prepare and serve and clean up for the Senior meals. She met so many people there and developed some great friendships.

Margi was a grandmother to many whether related or not. Her never ending love and support will be deeply missed by Rebecca Barber, Christina Russel, Mark and Sarah Huff, Melissa Robertson, Carolyn PaIotas, Michelle Lujan and Ina Carare. They were lucky to call her grandma.

Margi’s legacy was her kindness and welcoming nature to all she met. She truly believed in the good in people. Her presence will be missed by so many. Margi was a woman of faith, and we have no doubt she is heaven with the angels.

A celebration of life will be held at the Point Roberts Community Center on Sunday, November 13 at 1:30 p.m. All are welcome.
