Margaret ‘Margie’ Pfautz, 89, chemist, active at Lititz Moravian, enjoyed pinochle
Margaret “Margie” Yerger Pfautz, 89, died at Brethren Village Friday, July 11, 2014, at 9:10 a.m.
Born in Lititz to the late Robert H. and Mary Badorf Walter Yerger, Margaret attended F&M College and graduated with an A.S. in Medical Technology. On July 3, 1948, Margaret was married to Ray F. Pfautz, who passed away Feb. 9, 2008.

Her siblings: Helen Eckman, Roy Yerger, James Yerger, Myra Groff, and Mary Eshleman preceded Margaret in death.
