She attended school in Vermontville before marrying the love of her life, Herald Graham on April 19, 1941 in Bryon, OH. She and Herald raised five children and lived a life of family devotion. Margaret loved to throw parties. She and her sisters always made sure to put on a family reunion every year at Christmas, Thanksgiving, and in the summer. They loved to cook, and Margaret even made wedding cakes for many years. Margaret also loved music, and was known to sing little songs around the house. The year Herald gave her a mink coat for Christmas, she got the nickname “Queen,” and it stuck throughout her life. The family made trips out to California to visit family, and stopped to take in the sights along the way.
