As the butterfly, Margarette gracefully flew into the arms of our Lord on Oct. 6, 2016 in San Marcos at the age of 94. She was born to John and Pearl Kountz on Aug. 23, 1922 in Junction, Texas. Her brother, John Kountz, Jr., and sister, Lucille Kountz Alter, preceded Margarette in death. From the beginning, Margarette was a unique and intriguing individual. The Kountz family emigrated from Germany and founded Junction, Texas along with other brave families. Her great-great grandfather was the town’s physician; and, his wife was the first Postmaster General.
