Margaret was a very family-oriented woman. Although she worked until the age of 72, spending time and taking care of her husband and family was what she loved to do.
In her spare time, Margaret could be found playing the piano at church or square dancing as a member of the Frontier Twirlers. Margaret was a great woman and will be deeply missed by everyone she came in contact with.
