Margaret Ann Dobbs, 63, of Eufaula, Oklahoma, passed away Saturday, Jan. 27, 2024, at her home surrounded by family. Margaret was born on AuG. 11, 1960, in Hobart, Oklahoma, the daughter of Charles Thomas and Doris Ann (Braddock) Sanders. Margaret graduated from Norman High School in 1978. She attended Oklahoma University where she received her Bachelors in Education in 1982 and her Masters in Education Administration in 1984.
On Jan. 1, 1992, Margaret married Mark Dobbs in San Antonio, Texas. They were happily married for 32 years.
She served on the Eufaula Board of Education for 15 years and also served on the Eufaula Planning and Zoning Committee for 10 years.
Margaret was a Health and Kinesiology instructor at Northeastern State University from 2006 to 2021. While teaching she became an accomplished author of many books including the Applied Anatomy/Physiology ebook through Top Hat which is used by many universities today.
After leaving the university, Margaret went back to doing the many things that she loved, which included yoga and gardening. While she practiced yoga for many years, she started instructing yoga at her studio, Soul Sister’s Yoga, where she happily connected and instructed with so many people.
Being the consummate student and teacher Margaret, went back to school and proudly obtained her master gardening degree, so that she and Mark could take her garden to “the next level”…which they did.
But mostly Margaret loved spending time with her family and friends and loved being outdoors enjoying nature.
