Margaret was a long-time resident of Lancaster, PA where she and Lawrence made their home overlooking the Conestoga River. Margaret was an avid gardener, bird lover and antique collector. She was also active in Grandview United Methodist Church. Margaret loved people and her infectious smile made her friends wherever she would go.
