Born in Lyons, now Clinton, Iowa, on Nov. 3, 1914, she was the daughter of Martin and Wilhelmina Albertina Hoffmann Moesinger.

She was baptized Feb. 21, 1915, and confirmed in the St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Clinton April 1, 1928.

Following her graduation from high school in Clinton, Iowa, Margaret moved to Chicago, attended Business College and was employed as a legal secretary until her marriage.

When she was no longer able to bowl, she continued to attend the bowling girls’ luncheons, which were the high point of her week in her last years. She was a competitive bridge player for many years.

Margaret was a prodigious seamstress and knitter and handcrafted clothing and sweaters for three generations of her family. Her children remember her as a gourmet cook and were proud of her sense of style and elegance.
