Mary Margaret Fassler

Mary Margaret Fassler, age 77, of Mena, Arkansas passed away Thursday, May 23 2019 in Little Rock, Arkansas.

She was born June 19, 1941 in Vandervoort, Arkansas to the late Ambrose A. Fassler and Mamie Smith Fassler.   She was a teacher for 43 years and taught in the Mena School District for many years and owned Fassler School of Dance and Gymnastics.   She loved teaching and saw it as a blessing to have impacted so many children.  She also loved her church and Bible studies.  Anyone who had a chance to meet her walked away with a memory to last a lifetime.  From “Gather up your paraphernalia” to “Get your ducks in a row”, she had a way with life that will never be forgotten.  She was a woman who was stead-fast, persistent, strong-willed and determined and a loving mother, grandmother and aunt, always wanting nothing but the best for her loved ones.  She will be dearly missed by all.
