She was a native of Paris, TX, where she worked at a local pharmacy where she met and married her husband, Bill. Their journey in life had them live in many places including Texas, Louisiana, Venezuela, Road Island, and New Mexico. Their retirement home was in Sacramento, NM, until Bill’s health issues had them move to Mandeville, LA. Margaret had a highly independent spirit, and was an avid Bridge player and skilled needlepoint artist. She enjoyed gardening, crocheting, quilt making, and various other arts and crafts. She enjoyed the beauty of life and crafted things that reflected that beauty.

She will be greatly missed by her family and her pet Maggie II.
