TERRE HAUTE — Margaret B. Wilson Hendrickson, 106, of Terre Haute, passed away at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, March 8, 2014, in Terre Haute Regional Hospital. She was a teacher in both Vigo and Parke Counties, retiring in 1968. Margaret was born May 12, 1907, in Glasgow, Scotland, to David Wilson and Ellen (MacAnley) Wilson.

She is survived by daughters, Martha Parker and her husband Ron and Betty Akers, all of Terre Haute; sister-in-law, Pauline Wilson; nine grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; eight great-great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

She enjoyed reading her Bible daily, and quilting, which she did until two years ago when it got too hard for her. She was also the oldest living graduate from Indiana State University from which she graduated in 1927. Margaret’s family said that she had a very active life, enjoying being involved and helping out, especially doing what she could for the “Old People.” She loved being with family and she is going be missed deeply.
