August 13, 1936 - October 14, 2022
Margaret was born and raised in Albia, Iowa. Upon graduation at sixteen, she moved to Denver and worked for Bell Telephone Company and then as an executive secretary for Martin Marietta Company.
She married in 1958, and Margaret and her husband started and successfully operated Bussard Construction Company in Littleton, Colorado. She later managed her industrial properties until her death.
Margaret was a wonderful mother and raised her three daughters as a single parent, putting them through college and graduate school. She was known by family and friends as a very strong-willed, determined, inquisitive, wise, charitable, and loving woman. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
Margaret is preceded in death by her daughter Tena Bussard, her parents Camille and Ruth (Cottrell) Price of Albia, Iowa, and her sister Camillia Bucklin. Margaret is survived by two daughters, Vicki Bussard (married with son Alexander) who resides in Alaska and Pamela Bussard (son Nicholas) who resides in Littleton, Colorado, by her siblings Beverly Dixson, Camille Price Jr., and Maymie Simmons, and nieces and nephews.
There will be a private family graveside service in Iowa. Please consider contributing to The Salvation Army or to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
“For you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.” Psalm 116:8-9
