Margaret Civitello-Poole passed away on December 24, 2021.
She is survived by her husband, Ellsworth Poole, who met when she worked for a public claim adjusting company as their Marketing Director. A job she thoroughly enjoyed. Margret and Ellsworth became engaged, and it lasted for 20 years, until her passing.
Her life began in American Canyon, Napa County, California.
Her parents were Eileen Forsey, nee Luke Peggy as she was known Margaret graduated from Napa Valley School in Napa, California. She has a brother, John Forsey. John was born a year later. While John was her only true sibling, she also grew up with a constant presence of foster children. In her circumstance, it was not the most pleasant of circumstance. Hence her desire to get out on her own and move to San Francisco, California.
She obtained secretarial and business experience and supported herself in that capacity. During this time in her life, Peggy also worked as an airline host in the middle eastern part of the world, serving Muslim people on air flights taking them to Mecca Arabia for traditional pilgrimages.
John Civitello became her husband in 1980 and to their union her only child was born, Paul Civitello, who she doted on. Her affections were deep and long-lasting. However, it is not to say that the birth of grandchildren took all her affection. But they did get the best gifts.
Margaret and Ellsworth served as grandparents of her three grandchildren, Dominic the oldest, Angelia, and the youngest, Damon.
While Margaret’s life had evolved to where she unexpected but well-received benefits, it was her affiliation with her church, First Congregation Church of Akron. She blossomed there serving on various committees cooking church meals for the congregation. Margaret loved preparing meals for people to cooking for a church event. It was her proudest moment. Margaret was a good person, loving and willing to do anything for others. She was well respected by peers and admired by her friends. She will be missed.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 15, 2022 at 11:30 am at First Congregational Church of Akron, 292 E. Market Street Akron, Oh 44308.
