“You are the light that gives light to the world.” As a beautiful mom, daughter, sister, wife, aunt, forever friend, Margo radiated light to this world in all that she did, in all whom she loved. Margo had a heart of service, loved others with open arms, and leaves the world
a better place with her giving heart and gracious spirit to light our way.
Love of life did not come to an end with her death, nor did the love that we all share for Margo. She had a passion for learning and teaching, loving and mentoring.

Margo Dailey

Margo graduated from Lockhart High School in 1990 and Texas A&M
University in 1994; she received her master’s from Midwestern State
University in 1997. Margo and Chris were college sweethearts and
married December 10, 1994. Margo had a wonderfully successful career
in education teaching in Henrietta, Texas, and then English at Navasota
High School. She and Chris founded Dailey Electric in 2003 in College
Station and then expanded offices to Houston and Lockhart. They have a
beautiful daughter, Sophia Kathryn born November 17, 2006 in College

was her passion. Margo served on the First Lockhart National Bank
Board of Directors, The Brazos Valley Figure Skating Board, The Deans
Development Council in the College of Education and Human
Development, College Station ISD Education Foundation, 12th Man
Foundation and as an Aggie Ambassadors member. She enjoyed serving
with Sophia at National Charity League and served on the board of the
NCL College Station Chapter. Her zest for life, making the most out of
every moment, spending time with family and friends, and making
memories with all of us is the precious gift she continues to give us all,
memories to last a lifetime.
