Margaret Marie (Minnick) Haupt, 89, of Boonsboro, Md., passed peacefully from this life Friday, Oct. 12, 2012, at her home while surrounded by her family.

Born Nov. 19, 1922, she was the daughter of the late Carlton Luther and Lydia (Byrem) Minnick. Her husband of 52 years, Woodrow James "Bud" Haupt, preceded her in death in 2003.

Margaret was a homemaker and retired after 22 years of service as the head cook at Fahrney-Keedy Home & Village.

She was a member of Benevola United Methodist Church.

Margaret will be fondly remembered for her dedication to her family.

She never wanted anyone to go hungry and everyone will miss her homemade potato chips.

Her family extends special thanks to Hospice of Washington County for their loving compassion, and to her caregivers, Pauline Minnick and Lorrie Wilt.

She is survived by three children, Beverly and husband, Ronald Talbert Sr., Allan W. Haupt and wife, Sandy, and Connie and husband, Robert Talbert Sr., all of Boonsboro; one sister, Geraldine Boyd; and one brother, William Minnick, both of Benevola; five grandchildren, Tina McNulty of Hagerstown, Robert Talbert Jr. of Clear Spring, Ronald Talbert Jr., Darren Talbert and Lorrie Wilt, all of Boonsboro; and six great-grandchildren, Lexie and Logen Wilt, Tyler McKenrick, and Abigail, Kirsten and Lakelyn Talbert. She is also survived by one great-great-granddaughter, Miley Marie McKenrick.

In addition to her parents and her husband, Margaret was preceded in death by three sisters, Polly Haupt, Patsy Seal and Louise Green; and three brothers, Preston, Paul and Kenneth Minnick.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14, 2012, at Bast-Stauffer Funeral Home, 7606 Old National Pike, Boonsboro. A graveside ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 15, 2012, at Mount Zion Cemetery, 20544 Benevola Church Road, Boonsboro.
