Margarete Halton

September 18, 1928 — May 13, 2021

Margarete G. Halton, a lifelong Philadelphia-area resident and artist, died Thursday, May 13, after a lengthy illness. She was 92.

Margarete, known as Gray, lived for nearly two decades at the Springton Lake Village senior community in Media. Murray Halton, her loving husband of 66 years, predeceased her in 2015.
They both grew up on Philadelphia’s Main Line, where they raised their children, loved their summertime camping trips, enjoyed a wide circle of friends, and were known for dancing the jitterbug. Gray did many years of volunteer work, for both the Red Cross and the Bryn Mawr Hospital; her engaging smile and personality made her a perfect fit for the job.

Gray attended Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, the Shipley School in Bryn Mawr and the Oldfields School in the Baltimore area. She practiced art her entire life. Her subjects included areas of Wyoming, Ireland, Tuscany, and her beloved Nantmeal Village in Chester County, where she lived prior to Springton Lake. In addition to her many oil and acrylic paintings of landscapes and still-lifes, Gray’s artwork included drawings, knitting, needlepoint, sculpture and photography.

Gray is survived by her three children, Maria C. Halton of Baltimore; Katherine G. Halton, wife of Robert Ingram, of Philadelphia; and Murray Halton Jr., husband of Doreen Sabina, of Jacksonville, Fla. She is also survived by two grandsons, Oliver H. Ingram of Philadelphia and Ellis M. Halton of Jacksonville, and by numerous nieces and nephews.

Gray’s creative spirit, warmth, courage, and generous loving heart were a gift to many.
