They were later divorced. Margaret worked for many years at F.W. Woolworth’s, retiring in 1982.

She moved to Red Pine Estates in 1995.  She loved being the one chosen to make the decorations for the community room of Red Pine for all of the tenants to enjoy. She was always looking for clever ideas for the decorations to make them special.
