Remembering a World-Class Collector

Dunwoody, Georgia

Margaret Horner Feit, an Atlanta native, passed away peacefully on April 4, 2011 after suffering a brain hemorrhage while watching the Phillies play the Astros in their season opener.  She was 66 years old.  Born Margaret May Horner on May 23, 1945 in Atlanta, of Jack and Alice Horner, Margaret was a lively child who enjoyed music, animals and watching and playing sports.  She had two children, David and Shelley in the 1960’s who lived near their mother in Atlanta.

Margaret was an innovative businesswoman and owned Jackson Associates, a local data collection firm, from 1983 to 2006.  During her career, she served as the President of the Atlanta Southeast Chapter of the Marketing Research Association, and worked on various committees dedicated to promoting the marketing research industry.  Margaret was a true visionary who wasn’t afraid to take a risk.  In 1983, she bought Jackson Associates from the previous owner, Marilyn F. Jackson.  In 1992, she opened the largest focus facility in Atlanta near Perimeter Mall.  Over the next 15 years, Margaret transformed Jackson Associates into a multimillion dollar business.  She retired in 2006, after establishing herself in the marketing research industry as an entrepreneurial icon. Margaret mentored many young researchers who still impact the marketing research industry today.

She was passionate about her family, baseball and Christmas. If Margaret wasn’t putting up a tree, or decorating her home with some of her famous glass ornaments, you could find her in the first row, third base side at Turner Field. She had a wicked sense of humor and was generous to a fault.  There were four sporting events she wanted to attend during her lifetime — the Olympics, the Final Four, a Super Bowl and a World Series. She managed to do all four as well as see the Braves win a World Series in 1995.

She is survived by her husband Mark, her son David Smith, his wife Sarah, David’s son Tyler and step-children Ryan and Autumn; her daughter Shelley Smith Avant, and her husband Ken and their three children, Alison, Stephen and Kevin; her sister Anne Horner and partner, Rosie Willmot; and her beloved cats, Bonny and Clyde.

Family and friends will celebrate Margaret’s extraordinary life at the Olgethorpe Presbyterian Church on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at 3 pm.

Halloween is on the way!

Halloween 2010 Front CoverThe Halloween issue of Celebrate365 is off to the printer tomorrow morning.  This is was created electronically in its entirety.  No proofs printer or sent, all digital images, pdf proofs … There’s definitely a learning curve but we survived the new experience and I think we can continue.

The Halloween issue continues to outsell all the other seasons.  This year, Celebrate365 received submissions from 71 different artists, designers and manufacturers.  Talking about record-setting participation!  This just might be the best issue in our history … well you can tell us!

We anticipate shipping this issue during the last week of September.

Want to order a single copy?  No problem.  Please CLICK here!  You’ll find a quick preview of what you’ll read about in this upcoming issue!
