Margaret H. Myer, 82, of Elkton, Md., passed away peacefully Monday.

Born in Pottsville, Jan. 25, 1932, she was a daughter of the late Edward and Catherine Handges.

A devout Catholic, Margaret was a longtime member of Immaculate Conception Church, where she enjoyed volunteering her time at the parish's book sales. She adored vacationing at her home in Ocean City, N.J. In her leisure hours, she liked reading, spending time with the many friends she made while working at the library and tending to her rose garden.
