Margaret spent her childhood in Elmhurst, Queens and was a 1945 graduate of Newtown High School. Margaret proudly shared stories of her early career as a secretary with General Electric before leaving to raise her family. She even earned the title of Office Orchid in a GE beauty contest! Once her children were a little older, Margaret spent twenty fulfilling years working as a secretary in the Oldfield Middle School guidance office in Greenlawn, NY. Upon retiring, Margaret and Ralph spent the remainder of their years living in Heritage Hills in Somers, NY. They enjoyed their many friends and had family visitors often.
