Margaret Ann Rembert was a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, friend, and servant of God. She left this world to take residence in her new home in glory on June 22, 2023 at age 66.
She was born on January 02, 1957 to Leo and Leona Ferguson in Sandusky, Ohio. An astute scholar, Margaret had attained all required credits in eleventh grade and was afforded the option to graduate early. In the late 70’s, she moved to Columbus, Ohio where she married and bore three children, Damon, Leonora, and Nathan.
She worked diligently to nurture her children, encouraging them to embrace their individuality, skills, and God given talents. After working faithfully at a health benefits company for decades, Margaret transitioned to Michigan for a job at Meijer to assist with the implementation of their benefits program. A decade later, Magaret returned to Columbus to spend more time with her family. God led her to a job with Life Care Alliance. She enjoyed her time with Lifecare because she was able to nurture the individuals holistically.
Margaret, endearingly known as Mitty, Mitz, Maggie, and Margaret Ann, had a passion for crafting and gardening but had a genuine love for people. Margaret was a true example of altruism and unconditional love. Her love was made tangible through her acts of kindness. Feeding the hungry, providing shelter for the homeless, and nursing the sick back to health are just a few examples of her selflessness.
Margaret had an incredible knack for teaching. She honed this skill which enabled her to expound the word of God so that all could understand.
She loved to minister through music. As a child, Margaret sang with her sisters and brothers (The Ferguson Singers). Later, she would use her musical talents as a choir director, psalmist, and a songstress. She also helped to form the singing group New Covenant.
However, the zeal she possessed for God far outweighed every other love in her life, a life she committed to the service of the Lord.
In 2011, Margaret became Chief Executive Officer of Sisters of Empowerment, a non-profit she co founded with her sisters. This organization was created to end the plague of poverty in the Linden community by providing financial literacy, job readiness, and life skills. Sisters of Empowerment, now named The Empowerment Team has flourished, and now serves all of Franklin County and many surrounding counties.
Margaret was preceded in death by parents Leo and Leona Ferguson, and siblings Melvin Parker, Charles (Chuckie) Watson, Richard Watson, and James Ferguson.
She is Survived by her Children, Damon, Leonora, and Nathan. Grandchildren, Damonte’ Rembert, Levaughn Johnson, Dezmond Rembert, Deanna Rembert, Quincy Hale Jr., Damegah Rembert, and great grandchild Jaysir Johnson. Her Siblings Albert Ferguson, Bruce Ferguson, Leo (Roslyn) Ferguson II, Ernest (Judy) Ferguson, Alice Ferguson, Leonard (Angela) Ferguson, and Lois Ferguson. A host of nieces, nephews. Those who were blessed to know her would testify that she was authentically Margaret and lived a life of servitude and holiness. Her legacy lives on through each song that she sung, each lesson she taught, and every life that she touched.
