Margaret Moore Gardner

Margaret Moore Gardner - January 12th, 1947 - June 3rd 2021 Margaret made her transition to Glory peacefully from her bed in the early morning hours of June 3rd, 2021. She was 74 years old. Due to health complications she was residing at the Peak Resources Living Center in Gastonia NC. Margaret was preceded in death by her parents Elmer & Annie Mae Moore and sister Linda Benfield. Her surviving family members include her beloved husband, Billy C Gardner; sister, Nancy Moore; son, Randy Helms and wife, Amanda; daughters, Kristina Acker, Marla Hinson and husband, Jamie along with 7 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. Margaret was born and raised in Charlotte where she graduated from Meyers Park High School. After high school, Margaret worked as an accountant for Eckerd drug stores, from where she retired. After retirement, she and her husband owned and operated the Oakhill Mini Mart, in the Oakdale community, for another 15 years. She loved people and also loved making cakes and pies to sell in the store deli. Most of all, Margaret loved the Lord with all her heart and loved her family the same. She set an unmatched example of how one should help those in need. Margaret would gladly go without to see that anyone in need was cared for. In her later years, she spent much of her time taking care of grandchildren and helping at her church, Fellowship Church in Dallas NC, in the food ministry. She will be greatly missed by her family who loved and adored her to no end. The family would like to thank all the care givers at Senior TLC, Peak Resources and the White Oak Manner. A celebration of life will be held at 1:00 pm, June 12th, 2021 at Crossroads Community Church, 1807 Lawing Rd., Charlotte, NC 28216. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to Crossroads Community Church. Donations may be made at the celebration or on line at nccrossroads.org.

Margaret was such special woman. I had only known her for the latter part of her life, but that was enough to see that she was the real deal. She never hesitated to help anyone and often tried to help everyone. She was an awesome grandma and showed my kids the best example of how to live. We miss you Margaret, and we love you.

Bill, Randy, Christy, Marla and the whole family. I am so sorry to hear about Margaret. She was such a wonderful woman and loved her family so much. She was always so sweet and even when you could tell she was ready to go home, she always had a smile and a kind word for everyone up at the store. She was loved by so many people. My heart goes out to you all, and you will all be in my thoughts and prayers. You just have to remember that she is with God and she will be watching over you!

Sister Margaret was a kind sister in the Lord, and we have many fond memories of worshipping with her at Charlotte Gospel Chapel. We all may take comfort in the knowledge that she is with the Lord and that we will see her again.

Hey grandma, its hard to believe all this. I miss you so so much. You were always willing to give, and you were always there for me. You were always there for everyone. You always made sure that we were all alright, and if we weren't you always be there for a hug. I loved hearing you're stories about everything. You were always a helping hand and I love you. I know you're looking down on us, and I know you're better now. Until I get to see you again, I miss you lots and i love you!

Anyone that came into contact with Margaret knew right away what a good, loving Lady she was. She Loved the Lord, and her family, she also loved those around her, probably the person in line at the grocery store also. That's who she was. Her family lost a one of a kind. We all did. Prayers for her family,

Margaret, Im finding hard to put together words just how much you have impacted my life. You have been a strong influence on me to be a better wife and mother. You were the glue that held this family together, because of your love and faith in the Lord. I have so many wonderful memories of us gathering together with family for home cooked meals and Your Famous Pound Cake. I am so blessed to have been part of your family, and most of all I want to thank you for taking my baby girl to church, now she serves the Lord!!! You were the nexus that has brought this family to the foot of the cross, I am so thankful to you!!! I love you and will miss you very much!! I will to see again someday!! Until then you will be in my heart always!!
