Margaret Sneed Coplen, age 92, of Jefferson City, passed away Monday, August 12, 2019. She was born June 30, 1927 and finished her life in the same manner she had lived it-in control and on her own terms. A simple farm girl from Pettis County, Margaret became a sophisticated yet still down to earth world traveler and out spoken advocate for choice. Much loved wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend, she is survived by her husband of nearly 70 years, Roy I. Coplen Jr. of Jefferson City; son, David of Fulton; daughter, Ann Coplen-Harold of Austin, Texas; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, John Manning Sneed of Sedalia. Visitation will be held at 3:00 p.m., Wednesday, August 14 at the First Presbyterian Church in Jefferson City. A brief memorial service will follow at 4:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Planned Parenthood Great Plains, 4401 W 109th Street, Suite 200, Overland Park, KS 66211-1303, or the charity of your choice.
