Inez Margarette Johnson was born March 7, 1921, in Wills Point to the late Willie George and Inez Lena Spires Johnson. She was raised west of Wills Point near the community of Cobb. She was a life long resident of Wills Point, where she attended the Wills Point Schools and graduated with the Class of 1941. She was drafted to play professional softball in California and Texas; however, after seeing her two brothers join the Armed Forces, she too felt the need to serve her country. She joined the Women’s Auxiliary Army Corp and was trained in aircraft recognition and radar at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. While serving in Norfolk, Virginia she met Petty Officer, Lewis C. Steadham of Georgia and on September 27, 1943, in Heflin, Alabama they were united in marriage. After the war, they returned to Wills Point, where she was both a homemaker and nurse for nearly forty years. Margarette had been a member of First Christian Church in Wills Point since the age of fourteen.

She is preceded in death by her parents, husband, Lewis Steadham, brothers, William Johnson, Daroe Johnson and S.J. Johnson and granddaughter, Cheryl Elizabeth Johnston.

Margarette is survived by her daughter, Cheryl Steadham Bunch, (Class of 1964) of Saratoga, Arkansas; son, Steve Steadham, (Class of 1966) and wife, Judy of Edgewood; grandchildren, Stacey Ellis and husband, Charlie of Wills Point, Kyle Steadham of Plano, Stevan Johnston of Alba and Charles Bunch and wife, Amber of Wills Point; great-grandchildren Zach Johnston, Brittany Johnston, Brian Nichols, Hailey Bunch and Sarah Ellis; great-great-grandchildren, Dylan Nichols and Collin Nichols; and of course, Ty, her kitty.

Visitation will be held on Monday morning, one hour prior to service time, at the church.
