Margaret Ann Cavett
Margaret Ann Cavett, who was born on July 24, 1943, and was a lifelong homemaker and resident of Beaumont, Texas, passed away peacefully in her home on September 13, 2021, at the age of 78.
Margaret Ann is survived by her husband of 57 years, Leonard Cavett; her siblings, Jim and George Vratis, Suzanne Lemonde, Christine Barker, and Jane Curtis Risher; her daughters, Sharon Strickland (Craig Strickland) and Christine Murphy; her grandchildren, Shelby Kelly (Cormac Kelly), Hannah Strickland, Brian Frederick, and David Frederick (Jamie Frederick).
Margaret Ann cared deeply for her heritage and was blessed with both a biological and adopted family. She is predeceased by her parents, Shelby and Eva Lee Mack, and Jim Vratis, Sr. and Wanda Craig Curtis; her brother, Nick Vratis.
Margaret Ann took homemaking to heart with her love for sewing, dressing up, and dressing the dinner table. She was a green-thumbed gardener, a lover of interior decorating and architecture, and a singer of old hymns. She enjoyed spending time with both her earthly and spiritual family. Margaret Ann was born into Sabine Tabernacle where she learned to be passionate about Jesus and people. On Sunday mornings she would enjoy the company of both as she made her way from one church service to the next.
Margaret Ann was brave, bold, and assured of her identity in Christ. She was full of faith, exceptionally generous, and never met a stranger. She would have called herself blessed beyond measure, proving the truth of Proverbs 22:9 — the generous themselves will be blessed, for they share their food with the poor. And Margaret Ann did. She relentlessly pursued those in need, regardless of the cost. She was fiercely devoted to the Gospel, her convictions, and her family. Margaret Ann was a seeker of wisdom, a petitioner for truth, and a courageous woman of prayer.
She would go to the ends of the earth to love people and to love them well. When we remember Margaret Ann, we think of Romans 8:31 that reads, “if God is for us, who can be against us.” Her spontaneity, determination, and outspokenness made Margaret Ann a person you wanted to have on your team — rooting for and encouraging those who crossed her path. Margaret Ann’s love took on a variety of faces, but it truly knew no bounds.
