The family moved to Wausau, where she grew up and received her education. She was united in marriage to Charles Erdman who preceded her in death on July 28, 1968.

Margaret worked in retail for many years. After her retirement her hobbies were sewing, knitting, crocheting and playing cards with family and friends. In 2010, she moved to Middleton where she resided at Middleton Village Nursing Home until her death.

Margaret is survived by her daughters, Joan (Bruce) Engebretson, White Bear Lake, MN and Carol Cooper, Middleton; grandchildren, Jamie Hart Oak Creek, WI and Charles (Lorraine) Genrich, White Bear Lake, MN and great-grandchildren Jenna Hart, Andrea (Jon) Halvax, Michael Genrich and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
