In 1960, they moved back to Taylor County buying a small farm and country store where they loved working in their garden, raising cows and nurturing their three children. Their farm was a place the grandchildren always loved to visit, fish, hunt and enjoy grannie’s cooking. Margaret operated the country store for ten years.

She loved her work in the lunchroom and would talk often about her times in the lunchroom after her retirement.
