Mrs. Margaret “Rosie” Waters Crowder, 74, formerly of Mocksville, was reunited with her parents John Nail Waters and Margaret Smith Waters when she was called home by her Lord on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2023. Margaret was born on Aug. 12, 1948 in Iredell County and grew up in Mocksville. She graduated from Davie County High School  in 1966, where she was active in numerous clubs and voted homecoming queen in 1965. Margaret loved being at the beach and shag dancing with her husband of 42 years, Kenneth. Margaret felt compelled to run for public office and served as a commissioner for the town of Hudson for two terms and upon her departure from office was awarded a key to the city.  Margaret often shared memories of growing up in Mocksville and living in New York City where she moved soon after graduation. She also created many fond memories with her dearest friend “Aunt” Brenda. Margaret’s greatest love was for her son Jonathan. In the last 9 years however, her pride and joy had become her two beautiful grandbabies, Mackenzie and Lucas. Margaret is also survived by a sister, Gail Coursey, of Henderson, and her children.

A memorial service will be held at noon on Saturday, Feb. 11 at Eaton Funeral Chapel. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service.

In addition to flowers, memorials may be considered for: Davie High School Class of 1966 Scholarship Fund, c/o Davie Community Foundation, PO Box 546, Mocksville, NC 27028.
