A loving mother and homemaker, Margaret was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing large meals for family gatherings, most especially over the holidays. While living in Baltimore City, she owned a ceramic shop where she held classes for family and neighborhood friends. For many years leading up to her passing, she enjoyed playing the slot machines at area casinos, was an avid reader of romance novels, and did various crafts and puzzles. She liked bingo and the card game pinochle. Margaret always had a pleasant and happy demeanor and was loved by all who knew her.
