Margaret A. Lang Obituary
Lang, Margaret A.

Margaret Anne Lang, age 97, passed away March 1, 2016, at her home in Socorro, New Mexico. Her niece, Katie Morella of Hamburg, NJ, and her nephew, William Lang of San Diego, CA survive her.

Margaret grew up in Nutley, NJ, and after high school she bravely took off for New York City and an independent career. Over the years Margaret lived in a variety of locations, ending up in Colorado and then New Mexico, as she loved the Southwest. She could not afford college in her youth but made up for lost time later on in life, when she earned a bachelor's degree from New Mexico Tech at the age of 76! Margaret's many interests included opera, organic gardening, English-style horseback riding, the Unitarian church, oil painting, and creating her own knitting patterns.

A memorial service will be held Sunday, March 20, 5 p.m. at Epiphany Episcopal Church, 908 Leroy Pl., in Socorro. Officiating will be the Reverend Angela Herrera of First Unitarian Church, Albuquerque.
