Margo K. McCance, 74, of Lexington, Nebraska passed away on Thursday, December 29, 2022 at the Lexington Regional Health Center surrounded by her loving family.
She was born on November 24, 1948 in Cheyenne, Wyoming to Karl J. and Frieda R. (Shanholtz) Keesecker. Margo attended school in Cozad and earned her GED in Lexington.
Margo lived the majority of her life in the Lexington/Cozad area where she kept busy raising her children and working. Margo worked in the kitchen at the Cozad Care Center before she spent almost twenty-five years working at Monroe Automotive in Cozad. She also worked in Lexington at Del’s Country Store working the night shift with her son, Mike. Margo then worked at Plum Creek Care Center in Lexington before retiring and taking care of her grandson, Kaleb.
Margo was a faithful member of the Calvary Assembly of God Church in Lexington. She was part of a Pro-Life Group in Lexington where they did lots of crocheting which she thoroughly enjoyed. She also always looked forward to the “Not so young Adults” church group where they would get together for barbeques. Margo loved spending time with her family, making Latch Hook Rugs, and playing board games with children and grandchildren.
Survivors include her children, Lori (Steve) Erikson of Grand Island, Mike McCance of Lexington and Tammy (Ricky) Wescott of Kearney; six grandchildren, Julie Encinger, Nicholas Morse, Kevin McCance, Christian McCance, Holly Cook and Kaleb McCance; two great-grandchildren, Ayden Encinger and Lillie Encinger; her sisters, Karla (Larry) Eggin of Gering and Toni McGrath of Gering and a brother, Tim (Theresa) Keesecker of Lincoln; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
Besides her parents, Margo was preceded in death by her son, David and granddaughter, Crystal Crowe.
A Celebration Of Life Service will be held in January at the Calvary Assembly of God Church with Pastor Rex Adams, officiating.
There will be no visitation, as the family is honoring Margo’s wish for cremation.
A memorial has been established in Margo’s honor, and kindly suggested to the Calvary Assembly of God Church or the Pro-Life Group in Lexington.
