Margaret loved playing with her grandkids and going to the island located off Swansboro in the Intercoastal Waterway. She also enjoyed going to Cape Lookout National Seashore, flying kites, camping and spending time with family. She and her late husband, Ron, were known to shag on their front porch on Sundays as they listened to beach music. She owned and operated Adams Appliances for many years. She, along with her husband Ron, owned and operated Woodbridge Funeral Home in Havelock. Margaret was extremely compassionate, and her compassion stood out as she helped families in their time of need. She took great pride in the service she offered, making sure every family was served with empathy and care. Many years ago, she organized the Christmas Remembrance Service for Forest Oaks Memorial Gardens and Woodbridge Funeral Home, and the service is still held each year.

She is survived by her parents, Edward and Yasuko Cheever of Havelock; son, Gene Adams and wife Melissa of Newport; brother, Jimmy Cheever and wife Geri of Newport; sister, Cathy Hill and husband Kevin of Morehead City; grandchildren, Easton Adams and Emersyn Adams; and nieces and nephews, JJ Cheever, Tommy Cheever, Courtney Cheever, Tony Cheever, Michelle Cooper, Kevin Cooper and Whitney Girard.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Ron Mewborn; and sister, Andrea Cheever Cooper.
