Margaret T. Isbell passed away August 10, 2017. She was born September 1, 1930 in San Saba, Texas to Hulen Graves Harris and his Wife Bessie Lee Harris.

She grew up in Grand Prairie and graduated from Grand Prairie High School. She worked for Powers Café in Grand Prairie and later Sears Roebuck in downtown Dallas. Margaret married William Isbell on April 3, 1950. She was a housewife for many years, helping with the bills by taking in ironing and laundry from the public so she could stay home raising her two children.

Her four-year-old daughter, Dana, talked her into going to meet her "little" Sunday School Teacher, Mrs. Wainscott. She fell in love with the church and soon became a member of East Side Assembly of God. She became a Sunday School Teacher after a short time. Later she became the church secretary and worked with Rev. Bob and Kathleen Skipper. She worked in the church relentlessly as Missionette director, Sunday School secretary, Womens Missionary Group secretary and any other position they needed. While there she met Gladys Land who became her best friend until her death. She raised her children and grand children with her values of loyalty to God, her church, her family and especially to her husband of over 67 years.

In 2015, her husband fell and broke his leg and never fully recovered. For two years, she never gave up hope and never stopped praying. For some reason, their tasks were not completed yet. They had someone yet to touch with their lives.

On July 27, 2017, God took her husband home. Exactly two weeks later, on August 10, 2017, God took her home. Now they can both rest and be at Peace together.

She is preceded in death by her Father, Mother, Brothers, Hulen Harris and Alonzo Harris, Husband, William, and Son-in-law, Gary Moon.
She is survived by son W.C. and wife, Claudette, daughter Dana Kay Moon; grandchildren: William David Isbell, Jeremy Daniel Isbell and wife, Alina, Rachel Faith Taylor, Belinda Westing and husband, Paul, Rebekah Seabolt, Chris Hartzel; great-grandchidren: Shawn, Brandon, Mackenzie, Zachery Paul, Cheyenne, Jessica, Zachary, Hannah, Schuylar, Sophia; brother-in-law Bob Isbell; sister-in-law Joyce Morris and husband, Neal; aunt Maybell and lots of cousins and nieces and other loved ones.
