A graveside funeral service will be held for Margaret “Ornery” Brummett on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 10:00 a.m., at the West Side District Cemetery. The service will be officiated by Pastor Larry Weatherly of the First Southern Baptist Church of Taft. Margaret left this world to be with her Lord, on Thursday, July 20, 2017 at her home in Shafter, Ca. She spent her life in the service of her Lord and Saviour here on earth and will now sit by His side. She was born the last of nine siblings in Colony, Oklahoma, on February 16, 1926. During the Great Depression, her family moved to California in search of a better life. She spent most of her life living here in Taft and Maricopa, living to the ripe old age of 91. Margaret was the true sense of the word ornery, which was a nickname given to her by her loved ones. Being ornery greatly attributed to her long life here on Earth. She was loved unconditionally by many people and will be missed terribly. Margaret was preceded in death by her husband Lonnie O. Brummett; her sons Bill Jones and Steven Brummett; her daughter Linda Blize, her brothers Andrew Isaman, Bill Isaman, Richard Carl Isaman, and Paul Isaman; her sisters Ruth Lawless, Georgia Hart and Mabel Robertson; and a grandson.
