Margaret's family will receive loved ones in the hour prior to the service. Face coverings are required for entry, and we thank you in advance for understanding no more than 50 people will be admitted inside the church at any given time.
Margaret was born December 9, 1942 in York Co., SC to the late Eugene Simpson and Grace Hunter Simpson. Margaret worked for Union County Public Schools, but her true career was as a mother to her children. A woman who was small, yet mighty, Margaret was larger than life. Strong willed and determined, she always managed to make life seem easy even in times of adversity. From the unique ways she showed love to her children every time they walked through the door, to her ability to swap a V-8 motor out of a car for her brother while he was away, the example she set for her children and impression that she left on others will live on beyond her life on this earth.,
Margaret is survived by two sons; James Carmin Hefner III (Cassie) and Phillip Aaron Hefner (Crystal), her sisters, Patricia Rogers, Melanie Belk (Wendell), Lydia Young (Billy), her son-in-law, Randy Helms, and 26 grandchildren.
In addition to her parents, Margaret was preceded in death by her daughters, Margaret Selena Moree Carmen Melissa Helms, a son, Eric Eugene Hefner, and her husband, James Carmon Hefner Jr.
