Margaret Hooper Oliver, 65, of the West Buffalo Community in Robbinsville, NC, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at Harris Regional Hospital in Sylva, NC.

A native of Graham County, she was the daughter of the late Arnold and Faye Phillips Hooper.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, George Oliver, in August, 2020, and her baby brother, Rev. Tommy Hooper, in November, 2016.

Margaret was a kind soul with a gentle smile who loved her family.  As her husband, George, battled many health issues, she stood beside him and faced them all with great grace and faith.  She worked many years for the Odom family, first as a design assistant and later as the manager of Papa’s Pizza in Robbinsville.
