Margaret Seelbach Vogel

April 16, 1917- April 4, 2016

Margaret Seelbach Vogel left this earth after 99 years of an incredible run. She spent most of her life in Seattle and was a graduate of Franklin High School.

She is preceded in death by her parents Camilla and Walter Seelbach, brothers and sister, Bob, Scott and Sissy Seelbach as well as her beloved husbands, Ernest Vogel and Dutch Randall.

Margaret is survived by her children Beth Vogel Brealey and Randy Brealey of Renton; Tom and Sylvia Vogel of Stanwood and Barbra Vogel Munisteri and Joe Munisteri of Houston Texas.

Margaret leaves grandchildren Tyler Jensen of San Francisco, Victoria Vogel of Truckee, California and Davide Coffman Munisteri of Houston, Texas plus two great grandchildren Kate Margaret and Thomas Rocket.

Margaret was a vibrant woman who could do most anything from upholstering a couch to tailoring a haute couture suit. She was a tireless volunteer and leader of Camp Fire Girls as well as for the Children’s Hospital Guild. She had great energy and would ice skate with her children as well as be the car pool mom for all those little league games. Margaret made all her children learn a musical instrument, which they still enjoy and play daily.

She was a successful business leader and worked many years in real estate at Meridian Valley Realty. She and her business partner Rick Pasko, recently deceased, were partners in the Meridian Valley Shopping Center in Kent, WA.

Margaret was an enthusiastic swimmer and spent much of her childhood at Pritchard and Rainier Beach on Lake Washington. She also loved golfing and was a lifetime member of Meridian Valley Golf Club.

Margaret Seelbach Vogel will be forever remembered for her great enthusiasm for life, her extraordinary beauty, her kindness and her business acumen. She leaves a legacy of love to all who knew her.

Her secret for a long and happy life – take a walk everyday, drink a glass of wine and have a positive attitude.

Well done Margaret. Let the memories play on…

Margaret’s life will be celebrated in a private service and condolences can be sent to Chelsea Farms 19450 208th Ave SE, Renton, WA 98058 c/o Beth and Randy Brealey.
