Obituary for Margo Lynne Claster
This week, Margo Claster’s family helped walk her home. Margo’s life was one that was well lived, giving of herself every day. She found an outlet for helping others through her employment as the Residential Director at Crystal Run Village and the Epilepsy Foundation. Later, she devoted all of her time and energy to raising her two daughters and working as a freelance artist.

Her artwork was free, spontaneous, colorful, and multi-layered, much like her life. Each day was an opportunity to express herself in a new way, free from structure, never coloring within the lines.

Margo was full of life, vibrant, energetic, fun, playful, magnetic; the kind of girl who had champagne on Tuesdays and everyone wanted to be with. She believed that being normal was not a virtue, but rather a sign of a lack of courage. Her fearlessness led to many unique experiences often becoming the topic of great stories filled with passion and laughter.

Margo’s open-mindedness created an avenue for meeting, accepting, and befriending many people, always embracing each person for who they were. She was a champion for the deserving, underdogs, and anyone who was vulnerable, such as, children, animals, the elderly, developmentally challenged, and our veterans. She was a voice for those that cannot speak and an ear for those that can.

Margo cherished her time coaching students and sharing her love for art with them in the Odyssey of the Mind program for seven years.

In keeping with Margo’s spirit, it is not necessary to name family members and friends she had and loved, as she was never shy in telling them and you all already know.
