Margo was born on December 21, 1974, in St. Joseph to Ralph & Bonnie (Tipton) Blakeman. She attended Eau Claire High School. Margo always had a love for children which led her to open her own child care business for many years. She was also employed at Family Dollar where she would enjoy socializing with all of her customers and a member of a Fibromyalgia Support Group. Margo also liked to play cards, dice games, coloring and working on crossword puzzles. However, what Margo loved most was spending time with her children and grandchildren. Family meant everything to her, and her smile was always at its largest when they were around. Margo was incredibly loving and honest, and always shared her opinion even when it wasn’t exactly what people wanted to hear but that’s what made her so caring; she will truly be missed by all who knew her.
Margo is survived by her mother, Bonnie Blakeman; children, Tyler (Kristen) Blakeman, Bradley Blakeman, and Tami (Adam) LeVallee; significant other, Che Davis (Che, Carrina, Bailey, Sam, Darian, Gavin, and Fiona) ; grandchildren, Logan, Tessa Rae, Bentley, Camden, Jackson, Avenly, Garrett, and Jordyn; siblings, Michele Drake, Cassie Kopaceski, Chasity Nixon, and Jamie Ferney; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
