Margaret graduated from Stamford High School in 1946 and started working at the Home Finance Company where she met her husband. After raising her family, she returned to work for People’s Bank, retiring at the age of 62.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Margaret’s long-time caregiver and friend, Victoria Kwofie, who provided excellent care in a very kind and loving way.
