Margaret was a loving, generous woman who always saw the positive in everything. Family and friends were extremely important to Margaret, and she always made an effort to keep in touch with loved ones. She had friends from all areas of her life, from her childhood in Newark to friends from her various jobs, and across all ages. Known to many as “Aunt Marge”, she always gave good advice and was a great listener. She loved dancing and the Yankees and was a lifelong Elvis super fan who had dreamed of visiting Graceland.
