      She was born September 17, 1934, in Berrien Springs, Michigan, the daughter of Rolla and Signe Huffaker.

      Margaret worked as a Licensed Practical Nurse and hospice nurse in Florida, along with embracing the role of homemaker and devoted mother.  She enjoyed gardening, taking scooter rides with her favorite companion Raggy, and had an appreciation for beautiful things.  Florida was home to Margaret for many years and she greatly loved the friends she met there, many who along the way had become like family.  She had been a dedicated member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Brooksville, Florida where she was a wonderful pianist and enjoyed telling the “children’s stories.”

      She is survived by her daughter: Michelle (Mike) Sabin, two grandchildren: Kailee (Dustin) Charles, and Robert Lloyd (Ashley) Lindgren; and seven great-grandchildren.

      She was preceded in death by her parents and her five siblings.
