Margaret and her family immigrated to America in 1946. She proudly became a U.S. citizen in 1956. Margaret grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y. making wonderful memories such as spending time with her father helping out in his grocery store and teaching her mother English.
Margaret graduated high school in Brooklyn and worked as a buyer in Manhattan for a large retail chain. She later moved to the area in 1977.
