"Miss Marguerite" was born in Jacksonville, Florida, to John C. Nicholas and Dollie Bethea.

During her 98 years, she experienced many changes in her life: Discoveries, innovations, space travels (who could forget the moon landing) events and wars-and was in awe of the instant communications of the internet.

The Great Depression contributed to her thrifty nature. And her grandmother, Annie Glisson Bethea, instilled in her the proud heritage of her Cherokee ancestors.

She loved to dance and there was always a line awaited the hand of the prettiest girl in the room.

She was pre-deceased by her husband of almost 50 years, Edward "Ned" Ushler, her son William "Billy: Boes, and grandson, Kirk Boes.

Special appreciation to all the eighth-floor staff at the Mayo clinic for their compassionate care, and to Dr. Katherine Tapper who guided us through this most difficult time. We will never forget the loving support she showed us, and the time she spent comforting our family.

She is survived by her three daughters: Marie Harris (Terry), of Gladstone, MO; Nancy Ann Davis and Diana Lynn Pike (Donald) of Jacksonville, FL. She will be sadly missed by her 11 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.

She leaves her sister, Marian Hickox, of Jacksonville, and nieces. She will also be missed by her friend, Dot Smith, with whom she socialized for many years at Brookdale Independent Living reminiscing about their lives.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, May 20, 2017, as 2:00 at the Hardage Giddens Chapel Hills Memory Gardens, 850 St. Johns Bluff Rd. N., Jacksonville, FL 32225
