In Memorium: Margaret L. Augustine – A Tribute To Our Co-Founder

Margaret co-founded Augustine Exterminators and opened the company on August 1, 1966, with her husband James. She handled all aspects of the office in their home in Prairie Village, Kansas while raising their six children (not an easy feat!). Margaret was the Director on the Board of Directors since 1967 when she and James incorporated Augustine Exterminators, Inc. She was also the Secretary and Treasurer from that time forward and was Bookkeeper throughout the first decade of operation. She ushered in the computer era for the company in the 1980s by completing a Computer Technologies Course in Houston. She also attended the National Pest Management Association meetings for over thirty years. Margaret was a loving mother and a doting grandmother to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She would never miss out on a chance to show her love and support to her family, loudly cheering them along! Margaret and her adventurous spirit will be remembered and missed dearly by all.
