Marguerite Unrein Houchins, age 87, was freed from her long-time struggle with Alzheimer’s disease on Wednesday, November 21, 2018. Marguerite’s artistic passions were evident at the potter’s wheel and in her many and varied gardens.  She loved reading and listening to all types of music.

Marguerite is survived by three brothers Phillip, George & Edward Unrein.  She was predeceased by her husband, Rollie Houchins, in 1987.  She is survived by her children, Anna (Tim) Busenbark, Andy Houchins (Regina Murphy) and Kate (Dan) Guill.  She also leaves behind grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

We want to thank the caring staff at Aberdeen Village and Ascend Hospice for their untiring attention given to Mom.  Their devotion made Mom’s final years happier and quite comfortable.
