Margaret Sullivan Mix, 91, of Grove City, Ohio, and formerly of North Syracuse, passed away Tuesday, December 8, 2020. Born in Durhamville, NY, she was the last surviving of the eight children of the late John Lawrence and Mary Honora (Byrne) Sullivan. Predeceased by her husband of 46 years, Daniel T. Mix, Sr., on April 21, 2009, she is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Daniel Thomas and Beth Ann Mix, Jr.; granddaughters, Rebecca and Courtney and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Mrs. Mix was an Oneida High School graduate who worked for the New York Telephone until her marriage in 1962 to a military officer and resided in San Antonio, Texas until his retirement in 1966. They returned to New York, where they adopted and raised their son. She believed her greatest accomplishment was raising her son, being with her husband as a supportive military wife, and having her two granddaughters of whom she was very proud. She later retired from Sears, Roebuck, and Company in the early 1990s. Margaret was a communicant of Sacred Heart Church of Cicero and a member of the Altar Rosary Society. Following the death of her husband of 46 years, she moved to Grove City, Ohio, to be with her son’s family. Margaret Mix enjoyed being with her life-long friends and family, reading, cooking, baking, participating in bowling leagues with her friends, attending her granddaughters’ musical events, rooting for Syracuse University Orangemen as a season ticket holder, attending military reunions with her husband, spending time in her “summer camp” with friends and family, and planning family gatherings. She especially enjoyed the annual reunions in Sylvan and Verona Beach with the Byrne-Goodman-Sullivan families. During her retirement years, she loved her vacations with her son’s family to locales in Outer Banks, NC, Bar Harbor, Maine, Washington, DC, and Florida. On Saturday, December 19, 2020, calling hours will be from 9 to 10 AM at Fergerson Funeral Home, 215 South Main Street, North Syracuse, followed by Mass of Christian Burial at 11 AM at Sacred Heart Church of Cicero, 8229 Brewerton Road, Cicero. The interment will immediately follow at noon in North Syracuse Cemetery. Both family and friends are welcome. Please keep in mind that masks and social distancing will be practiced due to the COVID-19 guidelines and the current governor’s mandates. Margaret has requested to have an Irish reception to celebrate her life and family; however, a memorial reception will be held later due to the current worldwide pandemic. Donations may be made to Francis House, 108 Michaels Ave., Syracuse, NY 13208 or Ohio Living Hospice Care, 9200 Worthington Rd, Suite 300, Westerville, Ohio 43082.
