Obituary of Margaret Alida Evans
Dateline: Clifton Park, New York
Margaret Alida Evans, 69, of Clifton Park, NY and previously of Manchester, VT, died on Friday May 7, 2021 at her residence after a long illness. She was born on Dec. 25, 1951 in Elmira, NY and was the daughter of the late William Chester and Eloise Ann McIntire Botsford. She was a graduate of Hammondsport High School and Alfred University where she received her degree in Elementary Education. Margaret retired as a paraeducator, having worked for the Sunderland Elementary School, the Dorset Elementary School, and several other local schools in the Manchester, VT area. She was a voracious reader who enjoyed watching game shows, spoiling her grandchildren, and spending time with her family. When her children were growing up Margaret never missed a sporting event, concert, or play. In spite of life’s challenges, she always maintained a wicked sense of humor and possessed an infectious laugh. Margaret was a patient with the Dialysis Center at SVMC in Bennington, VT and was fortunate to receive their high-quality care.
She is the beloved mother of Emily P. (Joel) Aure of Clifton Park, NY and Daniel S. (Katie Collette) Evans of Fletcher, VT; dear sister of Norman (Jeddie) Botsford of Brownsboro, AL, Jennifer Botsford of Ontario, NY and Evelyn (Tony) Adams of Greece, NY; cherished grandmother of Wallace Horacio Aure and Eleanor Margaret Aure both of Clifton Park, NY; also survived by a niece and three nephews, great-nieces and nephews as well as her faithful mutt, Katie. She is predeceased by her nephew William Botsford.
