Margaret Wave Cheek was born Jan. 22, 1927, in Stockton, Mo., to Coy Emmett Cheek and Mary Marine Sheek Cheek and was sister to three brothers. She graduated from Exeter High School in Exeter, Calif., in 1945. On Jan. 18, 1947, she married Marvin Myril Haynes at the Wee Kirk O’ The Heather Chapel in Las Vegas, Nev. They moved to Jerome, where they’ve resided for the past 60 years.
Marvin was joined in business by his brother, Earl, forming Haynes Bros. Painting, where Marge handled the business bookkeeping. Marge and Marvin had two children, Mike and Beth. Her concentration in her life was on her husband, home and family. She was a marvelous cook, made all birthdays and holidays special and kept the home fires burning. She truly was the heart of the home where everyone was always welcome. This past January, she and Marvin celebrated 65 years of marriage.
Marge is survived by her husband, Marvin; her daughter, Beth (Dean) Reddick of Twin Falls; her grandchildren, Casey (Krista) Reddick of Filer, Corey (Bobbi) Reddick of Twin Falls and Audrey (Matt) Kelley of Twin Falls; several great-grandchildren; and other family members she treasured dearly. She was preceded in death by her son, Mike; her parents; three brothers, Carol D, Cheek, Darrell Cheek and Jerry Cheek.
A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at the Jerome Cemetery, with Pastor Andy Morris officiating. No viewing is planned.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Jason Robertson and Angela Demaray Schneider of the Demaray-Robertson Funeral Chapel of Jerome.
