Margaret Berne Simar McCarver

LITTLETON, Col. - Margaret Berne Simar McCarver was born the youngest of eight children to Maxime Simar and Lydia Ledoux Simar in Iota. After high school, she moved to Houston, where she met and married John Henry McCarver. Margaret and John moved to Oklahoma City in 1964 and then to Littleton, Colorado in 1971. They were married for nearly 33 happy years before his death in 1980.

Our mom was so bright, inquisitive, always cheerful, adventuresome, feisty, a relentless teaser, an avid reader and a champion Scrabble player. We - her children Lydia McCarver (of Redondo Beach, California), John McCarver and his wife Laura (of Houston, Texas) and Mary Frances Whitehurst and her husband Franklin (of Littleton, Colorado), her granddaughter Jennifer Blackburn, her grandchildren Sara, Alexandra and Dylan Whitehurst, and her great grandson Jordan Alexander - will miss her forever.

Graveside Catholic services were held at Littleton Cemetery on July 3, 2012. To share your memories of Margaret and express condolences, please go to
