Magdalena was born on September 23, 1923 in Budapest, Hungary to Aurel and Magdolna de Galateo.

In 1962 they settled in California and since 1964 Riverside was their home. Her interests included family, sewing and reading. She was proud and passionate about her Hungarian heritage, but also loved her America. She was a member of the Southern California American- Hungarian Club in Bloomington, CA and loved to spend time at the Janet Goeske Center.
