Cannon Beach

Jan. 30, 1962 — July 8, 2016

On July 8, 2016, Margaret King Christians, beloved wife of Darrel, and beloved by her little dog Poindexter, left to join her departed family, her parents Norm and Kathryn King, and her brother David.

She is survived by her sister Cathie (John) Ellis, and her nieces, Jackie and Sara, and great-nephew Jordy; her sister-in-law Kim (Dan) Hanen and niece Cynthia (Gina) Christians and great-nephew Jasper; and her “adopted” sister and best friend, Linda L. Brown.

Margaret went to school in Switzerland, Bahrain and Santa Barbara, California.

She loved music, played the flute, was a thespian and loved photography. She was also known to have skateboarded in her youth.

She was an integral part of Cannon Beach, from working at Cannon Beach Bakery and the Hallmark Resort, to having a successful cleaning business with her husband, Darrel. Later, as her health permitted, she volunteered at the local food banks in Cannon Beach and Seaside, the American Legion in Cannon Beach and Seaside, and also the local farmers market.

A celebration of her life potluck was held at the Cannon Beach American Legion on Aug. 3, 2016.

Hughes-Ransom Mortuary & Crematory in Seaside is in charge of the arrangements. Visit to share memories and sign the guest book.
