December 24, 1930 - August 18, 2020
Margery Elizabeth Gannaway, 89, of Bolivar passed away Tuesday evening, August 18, 2020 at Citizens Memorial Health Care Facility. Margery was born in Masters, Missouri on December 24, 1930 to Clyde and Eula (Clemens) Wallen. After she graduated High School she met and fell in love with Eugene Gannaway and the two were wed. Margery worked as a Substitute Post Master of Dunnegan, Missouri most of her working life. She was an election worker as well and worked countless elections. Margery also volunteered for the Salvation Army during holiday season ringing the bell for donations. She enjoyed helping people who needed it most, often working for the Meals on Wheels program. Once she was close to retirement, it was asked who was going to bring her meals because her condition had advanced beyond most of who she was serving. She was a truly caring woman that gave to the community she loved. Margery is survived by her son, Don Gannaway of Dunnegan, Missouri; a daughter, Nancy Haase and her husband, Kim, of Springfield, Missouri; two grandchildren, Matt Haase and his wife, Molly, of Kansas City, Missouri and Daniel Haase, of Columbia, Missouri; a great-grandchild, Elizabeth (Betsy) Haase, of Kansas City, Missouri; a number of other relatives and caring friends. Margery is preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Eugene; and a brother, Clyde (Junior) Wallen. A Graveside Funeral Service will be held for Margery at 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, August 22, 2020 at Lindley-Prairie Cemetery in Bearcreek. Friends & relatives are invited to a Visitation with the family one hour prior to the service at Butler Funeral Home in Bolivar. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in honor of Margery may be made to the charity of your choice.
