Maloney of Hillsborough, NC, her son, Thomas Golden of Huntsville, AL, her daughter, Giovanni-Petrina Cosetti of San Francisco, her brother, James Gary of Houston, TX, 3 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren all residing in Texas. Margaret spent much of her life teaching special education and pre-school. She was a key player in founding a new Head Start location in Northern California that was opened specifically to assist the children of incarcerated parents. She was well loved by her peers, her co-workers and all of the children she taught. She was generous by nature often giving to others even when she did not have much herself. She was a fiery redhead until the end and lived life on her own terms. She will be missed but her legacy will endure.
