After graduation she lived in Montpellier, Vt. for about 5 years working for the School District there. She returned to Bellevue and started her own home cleaning business. She was much in demand and many of her clients became her personal friends.
Margaret was a real cat lover. They gave her great pleasure. She was also an excellent knitter and always made baby outfits for family and friend's new additions. She loved to read and enjoyed working crossword puzzles. Frank LeVeck and Margaret loved to travel. Some of their most enjoyable trips were those to Hawaii, San Diego and New Orleans.
In later years she became a dedicated caregiver to her mother Ethel Evers. During this time, she joined the Caregivers Support Group at Overlake Hospital. She made many friends within the group and organized luncheons and holiday gatherings.
She was interested in local history and was one of the founding members of the Redmond Historical Society. She was also passionate about genealogy. Her research uncovered more than a thousand relatives around the world on both sides of her family. She tirelessly documented and recorded all the information to preserve for future generations. She also did research for many friends and their families.
In honor of her wishes, a private service is planned. Donations can be made to the Redmond Historical Society, 16600 NE 80th Redmond, Wa 98052.
