Margaret Mary Burkhart Nau, 91, of Belford Street in Caldwell, Ohio, died Wednesday, March 22, 2006, at 3:40PM at Genesis Good Samaritan Medical Center in Zanesville, Ohio, surrounded by family. She was admitted on St. Patricks's Day with pneumonia, and due to her advanced age, she did not respond to medications. Margaret always stated she was born March 5, 1915, at home in Temperanceville, Ohio; however, when she applied for Social Security she discovered they had her birth date as February 5, 1915. Margaret was the second of 6 children born to Anthony and Rose E. Hughes Burkhart. She was a devout Catholic and a member of St. Stephen Catholic Church in Caldwell, Ohio. As a young adult, Margaret worked at Mount DeChantal Academy in Wheeling, West Virginia.

Vernon, Ohio; six grandchildren, Joyce (Ray) Rhodes, Sheila (Bryan) Rhodes, Mike (Brandee) Nau, Netti (David) Halsey, Renee (Mike) Hupp and Phil Braddock; and ten great-grandchildren. In addition, she is survived by two siblings, Herman Burkhart of Woodsfield, Ohio and Marie Burkhart Miller of Temperanceville, Ohio; and 2 sisters-in-law, Helen Nau Miller and Marj Burkhart. She will be dearly missed by all of her extended family. Margaret was preceded in death by her parents; her toddler son, Harry E. Nau, who died August 8, 1949, of cystic fibrosis, and her daughter, Theresa M. Nau Braddock, who died September 15, 2005. The following siblings also preceded her in death: Clara C. Burkhart Miller, Charles H. Burkhart and Frederick L. Burkhart. Friends may call Friday, March 24, 2006 from 2-4 and 6-8PM at McVay-Perkins Funeral Home in Caldwell, where vigil services will be held at 8PM. Funeral Liturgy with Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, March 25, 2006, at 10:30 AM at St. Stephen Catholic Church in Caldwell, with the Rev. Frs. Dale Tornes and Samuel Saprano, concelebrants.
