In her adult years, she lived in Iowa. Margaret married her late husband, Verl, and moved to Rockwell. She shared her many talents working as a nurse’s aide at the nursing home, cooking at the local restaurant, and managing the American Legion.
After the passing of her husband, she moved to South Dakota where her sister and family lived. Margaret finished her life’s journey in Charles City, Iowa, where she spent years as a foster grandparent.
Living family members include her five children: Sherril (Al) Hastings from Charles City; Karen (Dennis) Seidel from Sturgis, South Dakota; Linda (Tom) Taylor from Buffalo, Missouri; Kristy Honaker from Phoenix, Arizona; and Troy (Jody) Grant from Thornton. She had 14 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren. Margaret is also survived by her sister, Elizabeth Beckman from Mesa, Arizona; brother, Robert (Betty) Shuck from Rhame, North Dakota; along with several nieces, nephews, other family members, and friends.
