Margaret was a passionate gardener and cook, known for her delicious pastries and famous chicken paprikash. During WWII, she worked as one of the original “Rosie the Riveters”, welding landing ships for the troops at US Steel’s Ambridge Works.

Very active in the VFW Ladies Auxiliary for over 30 years, she served as President for many of those years and was responsible for the annual Poppy Day drives. With her husband Steve, Margaret shared a fervent love of God and country, and a deep appreciation of their Hungarian heritage that they passed down to their loving family through song and dance.
