Anaheim, Calif. -- Margaret Charlotte Tammen, 81, of Anaheim, Orange Co., Calif., formerly of Wayland, Clark Co., Mo., and Hull, Pike Co., Ill., passed away Monday, Aug. 31, 2009, at home in Anaheim, Calif.  

She was born on April 25, 1928, in Wayland, Clark Co, Mo., a daughter of Nathan Kamuf and Altha Corinne Falkinburg Henshaw.  She married Alfred E. Tammen in Hannibal, on Nov. 18, 1946.  Margaret is survived by her sister-in-law, Katherine Elizabeth Wendell Henshaw, as well as cousins: Paul, Louis, Wayne and Kenneth Linnenburger.  Margaret was preceded in death by her parents, and an only brother, Allen Scott Henshaw, and her ex-husband, Alfred E. Tammen.  

She also enjoyed spending time with her family and friends in Wayland and Hull, volunteering with her church family and writing stories.  She loved rustic things, country living, Whippoorwills at night and good Christian songs.  She always wanted a pretty car and a good permanent in her hair.  

After several years of marriage in Illinois and Kansas, Alfred and Margaret, along with Alfredís mother moved to Downey, Calif.  They began attending the Downey Free Methodist Church and became involved with Azusa Pacific University.  Soon after moving to California, Margaret began working for Kanar, as a chemist.  She was a faithful and valued employee till her retirement in 1992.  

Besides Margaretís deep love for the Lord, she enjoyed crocheting, making craft items and selling them.  She often participated in the Point Loma Auxiliary boutiques, selling her items, which in turn supported students wanting a Christian education.  She was also involved in supporting student scholarships at Azusa Pacific University.  

A memorial service was held Sept. 12, 2009, at the Anaheim Nazarene Church in Anaheim, Calif., and her remains were scattered in an area called "The Meadows" at Rose Hills in Whittier, Calif.  

An Endowed Scholarship has been established at Azusa Pacific University in memory of Margaret Charlotte Tammen.
