Following their marriage, they lived in Forest Grove, Thatcher and ultimately settled onto their two-acre farm in Verboort, where she resided until after Rudy’s death. She moved to Jennings McCall in 2015, where she remained active until her death.

Mrs. Landauer worked as a library aide and a berry field boss, but she wished it was known that her primary job was a homemaker to her husband and children. She retired as a library aide from Banks Elementary School in 1992.

Margaret was preceded in death by her husband, Rudy on Aug. 29, 2013, after celebrating over 64 years of marriage together.

She was a lifelong member of Visitation Parish in Verboort. She enjoyed sewing, making many hundreds of potholders for the church bazaar and crocheting kitchen scrubbies. After retiring she volunteered as the librarian for Visitation School and enjoyed many years reading books to each first-grade class. She enjoyed playing cards and looked forward to the card parties with her siblings while they were alive.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and grandson Louie Hertel, as well as her siblings, Ernest, Francis, Robert and Willis Evers; her three sisters, Lucille Kempen, Sr. Anna Evers and Barbara Meeuwsen.

Survivors include her children, Celine Landauer Allen of Mt. Vernon, Washington; Ed Landauer of Oregon City; Marv Landauer of Portland; Tim Landauer of Yamhill, Oregon; Renee Wilson of Walla Walla, Washington, and Mary Hertel of Dallas, Oregon; and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Janice Duyck of Forest Grove.

She always welcomed family campouts on the farm where she spoiled everyone with cinnamon rolls, pepperoni bread and homemade jam. Her canned peaches were second to none. She also claimed several other children into her family, ‘adopting’ them as adults.
