Marguerite was the proud valedictorian of Tunnelton High School, Class of 1942 and a graduate of Clarksburg Business College. She graduated with honors and pursued a career as a secretary and business woman that lasted over 70 years. She was A devout Roman Catholic, she was a member of St. Sebastian's Parish. Marguerite was also a spirited WVU Football fan and a delighted music box collector, who was ever eager for Buckwheat Season to begin. Above all these things, Marguerite was always a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Other than her extensive and cherished family, one of Marguerite's greatest legacies was her ability to befriend anyone, to hear the stories of new friends, and to remember and truly value the important details of their lives.

Marguerite was a very kind and giving person to everyone she encountered. One of her favorite sayings was "treat others as you want to be treated", and she practiced what she preached by spreading kindness wherever she went. She always encouraged people to do their best in the face of adversity and not give up.
