Margaret "Maggie" Worthy Harrelson, 85, of Graceville, Florida, slipped away peacefully to our Heavenly Father on Wednesday, July 16, at her residence in Crystal Bay Senior Living Facility in Sandestin, Florida. Margaret was born in Campbellton, Florida, on September 30, 1928, the eldest child of the late George Brenton Worthy and Bernice Christie Worthy. She was preceded in death by her brother, James Edward Worthy, her first husband Alfred Smith Solomon, Sr., and her second husband John Melvin "Chick" Harrelson, Jr. She is survived by her son, Alfred Smith Solomon, Jr. (and wife Debbie Vanlandingham Solomon) of Marianna, Florida; daughters Judith Solomon Schiros of Plano, Texas and Karaen Christine Harrelson-Macmillan (and husband Miller Macmillan) of Destin, Florida; grandchildren Ali Michelle Gilbert, Corporal Jacob Schiros and Matthew Schiros (and wife Dr. Chun Schiros); and great-grandchildren Chloe Gilbert and Olivia Lin Schiros. A graduate of Graceville High School (class of 1947), Margaret lived in Graceville for most of her life. Margaret was active in the First United Methodist Church of Graceville, where she was very involved in the Garden Club and Church Circle for many years. She was a wonderful (Southern Style) cook and an avid fan of the University of Florida Gators. Margaret was an elaborate homemaker and decorator, who enjoyed entertaining her family, especially during the holiday seasons. Margaret worked for many years, along with "Chick", for the Florida Department of Agriculture keeping the peanut inspection team on task. Margaret's family will miss her greatly, but have many wonderful memories of her smiles, wittiness, and devotion to them, that will be carried in their hearts forever. A celebration of Margaret's life will be held on Friday, July 18 at the James & Lipford Funeral Home in Graceville at 10:00 AM; following, a graveside service will be observed at the Marvin Chapel Cemetery.
