Margaret Smith

Margaret Smith, a retired English teacher, divides her time between Immanuel United Church; the community of Spring, Texas; a variety of outreach projects; writing; her home and garden; and her two cats that parallel her in age, Twister and Violet. Concerned with preserving the history of Spring and preventing its absorption into the Houston suburbs, she has written two books on the subject, Spring through the Seasons (2001) and The ABCs of Education: 100 Years of Education in Spring, Texas (2011). She recently completed a pictorial record of the history of her church, Celebrating 100 Years of Christian Service in Spring, Texas (2015). Margaret writes plays and programs for the church and has published a number of newspaper and magazine articles on a variety of subjects. Writing is certainly one of Margaret’s favorite things to do, but her favorite activity is to travel—and shop-- with her daughter Pamela.
