She was one of the founding families of St. Matthews Episcopal Church in Mobile, and a member of Overlook Presbyterian Church since the 1970's.
Very active in civic and political life, Margaret was one of the founders of the Azalea City Republican Women's Club, and volunteered to assist in voter registration and poll working. In addition to her hobbies (including sewing, quilting, gardening and making stained glass) she found time to teach Sunday school, and traveled extensively.
Her gumbo recipe is now legendary.
