Margaret (Wassum) Driemeyer

Margaret (Wassum) Driemeyer, a Fourth-Generation Californian, was born in Sacramento on January 26, 1925 and passed away on March 2, 2024.  Margaret spent most of her childhood in Sacramento, attending local schools.  She graduated from High School at Dominican in San Rafael, where her Great-Aunt was a Sister.

Margaret met her husband, Edward, at Middle School Dancing Class.  As soon as Edward completed Dental School in San Francisco, they married and together they raised three children.  Margaret worked in her husband’s Dental Practice when her children got older.  She spent many happy vacations visiting the California Coast and the Sierras with her family.  She impressed her family by her use of technology through her nineties; she e-mailed and used her computer to keep up with her loved ones and with current events.  Margaret lived near her children all her life and was blessed to know and spend time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 69 years, Dr. Edward Driemeyer, DDS, her sister Barbara Lagomarsino, and her parents Margaret and Walter Wassum. She leaves behind her children Ed (Ann), John, and Margie (Bill) Bowe, six grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, her sister Joan Teale, brother-in-law Bart Lagomarsino, and seven nieces and nephews.
