Note: Margaret in many ways fit the prototype of homemaker and support for her husband. She had a variety of skills: a piano player, a violin player, a knitter, maker of clothing. She was a very good cook, and excelled at baking. She once won a Cuyahoga County baking contest sponsored by the East Ohio Gas Company, this resulting in the free installation of a gas incinerator in the home. Her support of and aid to her husband in the way he conducted his insurance business was invaluable. She died at a relatively young age of cancer.
