April 16, 1916 - September 27, 2017

Margaret Kortus, 101, of Eagle Point passed away peacefully Wednesday, September 27, 2017.

Margaret was born April 16, 1916 in Chicago and married Rudy Kortus October 12, 1940. They moved to York Center, Illinois to raise two children and eventually retired to Florida. After 48 years of marriage and Rudy’s passing, Marge moved to Oregon to be closer to her children. She spent 20 wonderful years here.

She was a woman of deep faith, love, peace, and joy. She loved to laugh and could always do the crossword puzzle. The choir was singing Amazing Grace as she entered eternity with her Lord and Savior. She will have comfort that Rudy is there as well and he loved Amazing Grace.

She is survived by her children, Brent (Kathy) Kortus of Eagle Point and Claudia (Coleman) Sholl of Stockton, California. She had four grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren whom she loved with all her heart.

Margaret celebrated her 100th birthday in 2016 with a wonderful party that all her friends and family attended. The family wants that to be her living memorial, so no other service is planned.
