Barths and Dr. Kenny in New Washington, Hillside Nursing Home in Willard, and retired as an Industrial Nurse from Pittsburg Plate Glass manufacturing in Ontario. In 1985 she was honored with an entry in Who’s Who in Nursing.
She was an avid seamstress, crochet artist and quilter fashioning clothing and items for her household and family until the last months of her life. Her green thumb was evident in the plants that surrounded her home inside and out. Her knowledge of the genealogy of families in her community was extraordinary. As a child of The Great Depression she could stretch food and materials further than seemed possible to provide for her family. For many years she enjoyed wintering near Inverness, Florida and making new friends there.
Margery was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church and the Sappho Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star.
