In 1917 she moved with her family to Powell, Wyoming where she spent her childhood, graduating from Powell High School in 1932. She moved to Casper, Wyoming in 1938 to accept employment with the Casper Commissary.
On June 3, 1939 she married Harry J. O'Buck, who preceded her in death in 1949. At this time she began working in the Wyoming National Bank and continued there until her retirement in 1978. She married E. Dewey King in April of 1955. They enjoyed many trips, pulling a trailer around the U.S. in their retirement years. After his death in 1993, she moved to Santa Fe the next year to be near her daughter.
Margaret was an active member of the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Casper and in Santa Fe, where for many years she helped prepare monthly meals for St. Elizabeth Shelter.
