Obituary of Margaret Stapleton

Please share a memory of Margaret to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Our precious wife, mother, and grandmother, Margaret (Samuelsen) Stapleton, 72, passed away on Wednesday, December 15, 2021. She was born on July 28, 1949, in Staten Island, New York to the late Olaf and Muriel (Wiesner) Samuelsen where she later married and began her family. She had a giving heart, choosing a career as an occupational therapist to help others. Her strength and love showed, as she overcame a debilitating health crisis in early motherhood, to return to caring for her family. She loved nature and art, spending many years in the idyllic Catskill mountains as her family home; she would be found painting, scrapbooking, or sending digital photo albums to her friends and family. A conversation with her would often be a mix of caring and a bit of sarcasm, but always love. She is survived by her husband, Robert J. Stapleton Sr., four children, Robert, Samantha, Mark, and Lauren, eleven grandchildren, brother, Richard Samuelsen, several extend family members including cousins, nieces, and nephews, and many dear friends. A funeral service will be held at 12:30pm on Thursday, December 23, 2021, at Faith Chapel, 6 Burgoyne Street, Schuylerville, NY 12871 with Pastor Adam Wiegand officiating. Burial will follow at 2pm in the Gerald BH Solomon, Saratoga National Cemetery, 200 Duell Rd, Schuylerville, NY, 12871. Family and friends may call from 11:30am to 12:30pm prior to the service at Faith Chapel. Online condolences and messages to the family may be made at www.flynnbrosinc.com.
