John 11:25-26: Jesus said to her, “I AM the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me will live, even if they die. And everyone living and believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” Margaret Prichard believed it.
Margaret Ann Prichard, 87, of Elizabethton, Tenn., went to be with the Lord on Friday, August 6, 2021, at Johnson City Medical Center after a long bout with Alzeimers and dementia.
Margaret graduated from Lynnview High School and worked her early years in the banking industry, from which she retired and became a full-time homemaker. She was a very colorful and charismatic person who would rise each day, put on her makeup, fix her hair, dress nice and put on her favorite jewelry. She loved serving her family and keeping her home immaculately clean.
Margaret served for a time in the community outreach ministry of the local church she attended for years, Grace Baptist Church in Elizabethton. She was a beloved wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother and mother-in-law.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Ted and Irene Dillow of Kingsport; four brothers, R.T., Everette, Henry and Doc, all of Kingsport; and two sisters, Frances Lee of Kingsport and Mary Lee Kern of Highland, Mich.
She is survived by her husband of nearly 70 years, Harvey Prichard Jr., her son, Harv Prichard III and his wife Jenny, and two grandsons, Brandon Prichard and James Prichard, all of Elizabethton. Several nieces, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren also survive.
A service will be held in the Mausoleum of Peace at Happy Valley Memorial Park at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, August 12, with Chaplain Chris Hughes officiating. The family will receive friends at Memorial Funeral Chapel from 1 until 2 p.m. Thursday, prior to the service. Active pallbearers will be selected from family and friends.
