She was the second youngest of six children. Charles was a coal miner making Margaret a true coal miner's daughter. Margaret attended school in Colliers, West Virginia. At age 14 she left school in order to help support her parents. She moved to Cleveland, Ohio where she worked as a housekeeper for $3 per week which she sent back to her family. During World War II Margaret worked for Cleveland Graphite Bronze making ball bearings for the United States Navy. For decades she has kept her family entertained with her numerous colorful stories of her childhood and those remarkable days during the war. Margaret married Julius Lorencz on December 15, 1945.
