Margaret Dillard McLeod of Trion, Georgia, passed away December 3, 2023, at Oakview in Summerville.
Born May 27, 1937, to Senior and Mattie Dillard of Trion, she was married for 66 years to her high school sweetheart Charles Arvel McLeod, Sr.
A retired caseworker for Floyd County, Mrs. McLeod was a member of Trion United Methodist Church. She worked with the Trion Alumni Association for several years as treasurer. Her favorite part of her work with the Alumni Association was being able to send scholarship checks to Trion graduates because she believed so strongly in the value of education.
Mrs. McLeod is survived by her children Cynthia Anne McLeod (Don Highfield), Charles Arvel McLeod, Jr. (Lisa), and Keith Arlin McLeod. She was predeceased by her husband, Charles McLeod, Sr., and their son John Andrew McLeod (Cheryl).
Survivors include grandchildren Andrea McLeod (Victor), Lauren McLeod, Nicholas Van Pelt, and Kathleen Van Pelt Davis (Spencer) and great-grandchildren Kaedance, Ameri, and Andrew Van Pelt, Kai McLeod, Emmaline Gibson, Holder Davis, and Grady Davis, as well as nieces, nephews, and many cousins. The family wishes to thank the nurses and all the staff at Oakview Health and Rehabilitation. The care they provided during her stay in Memory Care and hospice was always kind and professional. The family also asks that in lieu of flowers, friends donate to the scholarship fund of the Trion Bulldog Alumni Association at PO Box 295, Trion, Ga. 30753.
