Margaret Lee Tichi (Woll) May 15th, 1946 - March 18th, 2023
Our Mother, Margaret (Woll) Tichi, lost her brave battle against cancer on March 18th, 2023 with her family by her side. She was a devoted Christian and believed in life everlasting. Margaret, a life-long resident of Grays Harbor, attended school in Aberdeen and Hoquiam including McDermoth, Emerson, and Hoquiam High School. She graduated in 1964 in the Top 10 of her class.
During high school, she volunteered in a program with St. Joseph’s hospital for students interested in health care. This experience cemented her career goal to be a registered nurse. Shortly after high school graduation, Margaret headed to nursing school in Portland where she earned her RN license and completed her residency at the Oregon State hospital. This began a fulfilling career helping others as a nurse. She worked most of her career in Thurston and Grays Harbor counties at local hospitals, nursing facilities, home health organizations, and caring for private hospice and high-risk clients.
Margaret had four children, Charlie (1972), Chandra (1973), Jacob (1977), & Jerod (1979). Of all the joys that came her way, she enjoyed family the most. She took care of her own mom and shared a home until Florence’s death. She took care of her children and always allowed them to come home, be it a few days, a few months, or a few years. These times were very happy for our mom.
Margaret had a beautiful yard. She enjoyed mowing the lawn on her riding mower, planting a wide variety of flowers, berry bushes, and fruit trees. She also loved yard figurines and decorations. She was never idle; ambition was second nature to her. She also had a love of reading, especially James Patterson. Margaret loved country music, watching movies, and playing cards with her “old cronies” every Saturday she was free.
Margaret loved deeply, cared sincerely, laughed frequently, had a servant’s heart, and loved the Lord.
Margaret was preceded in death by her mother, Florence Schulke, her toddler son, Charlie Witt, her brother, Robert Woll, and her close friend, Mike West, and her Chocolate Lab, Luke. Margaret is survived by her children, Chandra Witt, Jacob (Autumn) Witt, Jerod (Donna) Hollingworth, close friend & neighbor, MaryAllen, eight grandchildren, three great grandchildren, and four senior cats.
We mourn our loss, but find comfort in knowing she has joined her loved ones and is out of pain. Servant of the Lord, “Well done.”
Thy Glorious warfare is past.
The battle is fought;
The victory is won.
And thou art crowned at last.
