MASON, Margaret, of Henrico, Va., died on May 27, 2019, at home with her husband, Robert Lee Mason Sr. Born Margaret Kelly on May 8, 1943, in County Monaghan, Ireland, she was the middle child of the late Peter and Bridgette Kelly. She is survived by her sister, Mary McGovern; her brother, Noel Kelly; her husband, Robert Mason Sr.; her son, Robert Mason Jr.; daughter, Melissa Mason Makely; as well as her four grandchildren, Jack, Emma, Gavin and Oliver. Margaret was incredibly proud of her Irish heritage and often reflected on her life in Ireland. However, she also loved the life and home she had built in Virginia and was incredibly honored to become a United States citizen on September 8, 2004. In addition to becoming a U.S. citizen, Margaret was extremely proud that she was the wife of an Army veteran and mother to an Air Force pilot. Margaret was a beloved wife, sister, mother and Nana. She had a profound love for her family-her grandchildren held a very special place in her heart. She will always be remembered for her warm smile, kindness, thoughtfulness, generosity and her playful sense of humor. In accordance with her request, Margaret was cremated and laid to rest at the Virginia Veterans Cemetery at Amelia in a private ceremony.
