Margaret was an exceptional cook and worked for the Brandywine High School Cafeteria, where she retired as Manager.

She was good natured and had a playful side that her family and friends enjoyed. She loved her family and most especially spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her son, Dane "Andy;" her daughter, Gale McAllister (Gordon); her brothers, David Helms and Patrick Helms (Doris); her grandchildren, Shannan Brandenberger, Wendy Carpenter (Don), Cary Riches (Mike), Katie Brower (Josh) and Tim McAllister (Christine). Also left to cherish her memory are six great-grandchildren.
