Margaret Jean Muscutt Zuck passed away peacefully at 92 years of age. She was born to Alice Bernice Muscutt and Arthur James Muscutt in Port Angeles, Washington. Arthur was a shingle weaver and, as a young child, Margy, the eldest of seven children, helped to raise her siblings as they moved to many towns across Western Washington and Oregon. Margy professed her faith in Christ at an early age. After moving to Bellingham, she was hired as a switchboard and elevator operator at the age of 15 at the Bellingham Hotel before graduating from Bellingham High School in 1948. At BHS she was involved in both the Friendship and Senior Announcement Committee.
Margy met Lawrence Dean Zuck at Silver Beach Community Church, where she was a Sunday school teacher. Margy and Dean married in 1952 and raised five amazing children. Margy taught the two-year-old Sunday school class and sang in the choir at Nooksack Valley Baptist Church and later attended Immanuel Bible Church in Bellingham. They became foster parents and lovingly cared for 50+ children over the years.
Once Margy became a grandmother, her grandchildren affectionately started calling her “Meme” which many called her for the remainder of her life. Margy and Dean were married for 56 years before Dean’s passing in 2009. It’s comforting to our family to know that they are together again in Heaven.
Margy poured her life into her family. She loved to sew, always kept an immaculate home, canned fruit each summer, cooked everything from scratch and made the most delicious dinner rolls and chocolate chip cookies for every family gathering.
Many have described her as, “the sweetest person I know.”
Margy moved to Vashon Island in 2005 with her daughter, Mardi, and son-in-law, Nate, where she enjoyed tending to her garden, spending time with her grandchildren, getting the mail everyday with her favorite dog, Jack, and on Sundays one could always find her cheering on the Seahawks.
Margy is survived by her loving children: Connie Zuck Williams (Jeffrey), Gregory Zuck (Linda), Mardean Zuck Wilson (Nathaniel) and Jessica Zuck. Siblings: William Muscutt (Judy), Richard Muscutt, Virginia Muscutt Lewis (Thomas), Catherine Muscutt Wright and Patricia Muscutt. 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Margy was proceeded in death by her husband, Lawrence Dean Zuck, her parents Art and Alice Muscutt, her devoted sister Mary Ann Muscutt Hammett and her beloved daughter Julie Ann Zuck Hanson.
The family requests, in lieu of flowers, please contribute in Margy’s memory to the Union Gospel Mission, Bellingham, WA, or Vashon Youth and Family Services, Vashon, WA.
A memorial service will be held October 9, 2021, at Vashon Presbyterian Church on Vashon Island at 2 pm to celebrate
her life. The church requires masks and social distancing for those attending.
