Margo Diana Bond McGill, 80, passed away peacefully after an extended illness Sunday, August 13, 2023, at Edgewood Manor in Lucasville, Ohio. Born in Cincinnati, OH, she is the daughter of the late Howard and Dorothy Bond.
Margo accepted Christ at age eleven at Wherman Avenue Christian Church where she attended Sunday School and youth activities. She received her bachelor’s degree in 1966 from Knoxville College and worked as a Child Protective Services worker in Chicago, Illinois. Margo had a passion for helping and improving the lives of children. While working in Chicago she met and married Lucius McGill. To their union were proudly added two sons, Gregory and Christopher. Margo also became stepmother to Stephanie, who is a very loving and capable daughter. Margo enjoyed a nurturing relationship with her children and loved them above all.
She later resided with her birth family when illness prevented her from continuing the life she truly desired as a mother, wife, and social worker. During this season there have still been many bright days, great conversations, and laughter. Margo had many interests, including reading, crafts, writing, animals, and small children. She loved watching game shows, sitcoms, listening to jazz and Motown music, movies, and gatherings with family and friends.
Margo advocated for civil rights during the 60’s and participated in a student protest for admittance into local movie theaters in Knoxville, Tennessee, as well as attending the March on Washington in 1963. Her value for educational advancement was evident in seeking the best schools for her children that were available and she was so proud of their accomplishments.
Margo’s sweet and mild manner could be deceiving; for when it came to her family, she could be stubborn and very protective. She was mischievous at times and her personality endeared her to others. Margo had quality, lifelong relationships with several close cousins and friends. Later in life she delighted in attending New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church where she was loved and accepted with open arms. Rev. Linda Duncan made weekly contact to ask how she was doing and visited Margo several times at her Ohio nursing home. She would light up when going over old times and hearing from loved ones.
Margo was preceded in death by her ex-husband, Lucius McGill.
Margo is survived by her sons, Gregory McGill and Christopher McGill, both of Chicago, IL, stepdaughter, Stephanie McGill, Calumet City, IL, sister, Judy White (John), Charleston, WV, brother-in law, Mickey McGill, nephews, John White and Howard White, three great nieces, a great nephew, and several special close cousins.
