A caring and loving wife and mother, Dora Marea McGregor, 99, of Woodway passed away September 7, 2019. Marea was born June 3, 1920 in Wickes, Arkansas to George and Lee Davis. She moved to San Diego, CA in 1942 where she met and married Donald McGregor on January 24, 1943. She was a very active member of San Diego First Baptist Church and helped start two Southern Baptist missions, one of which was started in her home. She served as a Greeter and Church Hostess in both missions.

Active in scouting, Marea was a Troop Leader and District Coordinator for Girl Scouts in San Diego. She retired from General Dynamics Corporation in 1985, after 25 years as Secretary in the Contracts Department. Marea lived in San Diego for 51 years before moving to Woodway in 1993. She was a member of First Baptist Church of Woodway, Celebration Singers Choir, and Four Seasons Garden Club.

Marea enjoyed cooking (her family renowned Thanksgiving meal and table-setting easily could have been found in Southern Living), baking, hosting parties (especially in San Diego), traveling, creating floral arrangements, church activities, and being with family. She was accomplished with handwork, especially sewing and crocheting (she crocheted for each grandchild an afghan for their wedding gift). Thoughtful, she took the time to carefully select and send birthday, get well, anniversary and sympathy cards to family members and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Donald McGregor; sister, Opal Reno; and three brothers, Whitson, Lester and Hugh Davis.

Survivors include her daughter, Donna Cansler and husband, Ronald of Flowery Branch, GA; son, Wilson “Bud” McGregor and wife, Linda of Woodway; grandchildren, Tracey Smith and husband, Michael, Ronald Cansler, Jr. and wife, Melinda, April Jenkins and husband, Jeff, Kristin McGregor and husband, Tan Huynh, and Alison Weeks and husband, John; great grandchildren, Kayla Armstrong and husband, Promise, Erin Cansler, Jeffery, Clayton, and Owen Jenkins, Kendal and Katelyn Weeks; Godchildren, Layla and Walter Davis; and several nieces and nephews.

Honorary pallbearers are Michael Smith, Jeff Jenkins, Tan Huynh, John Weeks, Jeffrey, Clayton and Owen Jenkins, and Walter Davis.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the First Baptist Church of Woodway, Providence Hospice, or the charity of your choice.
