FEAVER, Margaret (Storsand)

Saturday, May 29, 1999

NORMAN -- Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and kind and caring friend, Margaret Storsand Feaver passed away on May 29, 1999, at the age of 85.

She is the mother of Dr. John Feaver, vice president of academic affairs, at the University of Science and Arts in Chickasha.

 

The daughter of Norwegian immigrants, Bjorn and Marie Storsand, she was born Nov. 12, 1913, in Marysville, Calif., and, with brief exception, lived most of her early life in central California. In 1936, she married John Clayton Feaver of Fowler, Calif. From Berkeley, they moved to New Haven, Conn., then to Berea, Ky., for several years and finally to Norman, Okla., in 1951.

 

A splendid pianist, Margaret Feaver was a longtime member of the Norman Music Club. She also was an avid and knowledgeable gardener. She and husband Clayton were members of Wabunaki. She belonged to the First Presbyterian Church of Norman and over the years was an elder and deacon, sang in the choir and on occasion played the organ.

 

After raising three children and a husband, in later life she earned a bachelor’s degree through the College of Liberal Studies at the University of Oklahoma. For over 40 years, she and husband Clayton were active participants in the social and cultural life of the university and Norman communities.

 

Her leaving is preceded by a brother, Ralph Storsand of Montrose, Colo., and by her husband of 59 years, Clayton.

 

Her continuing family includes two sisters, Gudrun Lockhead of Oakland, Calif., and Helen Robinson of Milwaukee, Wis.; two daughters, Ellen Feaver and Elaine Witten of Norman; a son, John Feaver of Chickasha; a son-in-law, Tom Lucas of Norman; and a daughter-in-law, Marilyn Feaver of Chickasha; six grandchildren, Joshua Blyden, Matthew Feaver and Emily Witten of Norman; James Feaver and Medea Garcia of Chickasha, and Joshua Glass of Oklahoma City; and one great-granddaughter, Katy Garcia of Chickasha.

 

The family requests that remembrances of Margaret take the form of support for hospice services.
