Margaret, known by friends as Marge, was a member of Westport Road Christian Church, Disciples of Christ, Louisville, KY. She loved spending time with family and friends, playing games, working on her computer, and reading.

She was in the Cadet Nurse Corps in WWII, and later became one of the first Medical Data Analysts in the United States. Very analytical, with a gift for math, bookkeeping became another vocation at which she excelled.

Margaret loved education and, at 48 years young, went to college to achieve a lifelong dream, graduating with Honors at age 51 with a degree in Business Administration/Accounting. She was a member of Beta Gamma Sigma, Pi Omega Pi, and the National Honor Society.

She had a passion for the outdoors, traveling and golf, winning tournaments and trophies until retiring at age 86. Generous with her talents, Margaret served in many organizations.

    So sorry Steve. A lot of those names are familiar to me. We lived next door to Leona Warren when we lived on Johnson Street
