Margaret was employed as a secretary at Motorola, where she met the love of her life, Ted Hoffman.  They got married in 1956 and resided in Morton Grove, IL, where they raised their two children, Danny and Laura.  

Margaret was a longtime parishioner of St. Martha in Morton Grove where her beautiful voice could be heard singing in the choir.  In her free time, she enjoyed reading, playing the piano, and watching all genres of movies. She always looked forward to spending time with family and sharing a Sam Adams.  

Margaret is survived by her daughter, Laura (Martin) Senior of Plainfield; her four grandchildren, Nathaniel (Lindsey), Jacob, Scott and Taylor Anderson; and one great-grandson on the way.  Numerous nieces and nephews also survive.
