HAMILTON, OHIO-Margaret Jane (Retherford) Langdon moved to Heaven (no packing required) on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 after a courageous 12-year battle with cancer. Born in Summitville, Ind., on August 1, 1941, to Melvin and Lola (Davidson) Retherford, Margaret was the youngest of 5 children. She grew up on the family dairy and livestock farm and graduated from Summitville High School in 1959. Margaret married David W. Langdon (Hartford City) on August 27, 1961, and started their family on a farm in Blackford County, Indiana, raising crops and some 4, 000 chickens and rearing daughters Ann Margaret (born 1962) and Sherry Jo (born 1963). Last month the couple celebrated 56 years together. In 1970, they moved to Hamilton, Ohio, and made it home for 47 years, attending First Church of God in Hamilton (at Pleasant and Woodlawn) and other local churches throughout the years, nurturing their growing family and embracing their community. Margaret will be remembered for so many things, from her beautiful smile and quick humor to her compassion and generosity, hospitality, loyalty to friends and pride in her family (especially those grandchildren!). She loved working outside, mowing lawns and working in her garden—neighbors and friends were the annual beneficiaries of her abundance of tomatoes and cucumbers. She faithfully followed politics, FOX News and football (Bengals first and then Colts), but during baseball season it was all-things Cincinnati Reds! She valued the ordinary things in life, but Margaret's true passion was God. She was enthralled with Heaven and she loved hearing about and experiencing Jesus, Holy Spirit and the supernatural Glory and Goodness of God.

Margaret was preceded to Glory by her parents, and her eldest brother, Dwayne Retherford.

Her family still here on earth without her, for now, includes: David Langdon (husband); Ann Langdon (daughter) and Samuel (grandson); Sherry (and Stephen) Mollick (daughter), and Hannah (granddaughter); and her siblings, Becky Williams, Alan (and Shirley) Retherford and Howard (and Bonnie) Retherford; as well as a whole bunch of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, classmates and friends. Margaret was an organ donor. In passing she has given the gift of sight to at least two people.

Visitation will be held Monday, September 25, 2017, 5:00 - 7:00 pm at Brown-Dawson-Flick Funeral Home, 1350 Millville Ave, Hamilton, Ohio. Service will follow at 7:00 pm.

On Thursday, September 28, 2017 a visitation will be held from 1:00 - 3:00 pm at Owens-Noffze Funeral Home, 1009 W. Walnut St., Summitville, Indiana. A very brief service will take place prior to leaving for graveside services to follow at Vinson Memorial Cemetery in Summitville.

Owens-Noffze Funeral Home in Summitville is handling local arrangements.
