Margaret grew up on the Oros Dairy Farm and graduated from Cincinnatus High School. After high school, she worked at Smith Corona in Cortland, NY, as a machinist / typist before meeting the love of her life, Eugene.
The greatest joy in Margaret’s life was the love and pride she had for her husband, three children and five grandchildren. Margaret was a devoted wife and supported Gene for 44 years in NYS Corrections. They had strong professional and family values and passed them on to their children and grandchildren.
Margaret and Gene loved to travel and especially enjoyed their trips to Florida when they could bring the grandchildren to the beach! Margaret was creative and talented. She learned how to create beautiful afghans with the guidance of “Meme LeFevre”, taught herself how to make hook rugs, canning and creating Hungarian dishes (which her children unfortunately could not reproduce. ), make ceramic figurines, dance the polka and sing along to country and oldie music!
A special “thank you” to the amazing caregivers who showed compassion and love for our mom. We are all grateful to you.
