Margot received her bachelor’s degree from Ohio Northern University and then went on to get her master’s degree from the University of Michigan. She was an associate professor at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania for over 35 years.
Margot enjoyed golf and had bowled in the Edinboro Lanes Wednesday Night Ladies' League for a number of years. She enjoyed baking, cooking for family, and never paying full price. She also enjoyed reading books (usually with a cat on her lap), and listening to public radio (though she wished they played more classical music). For decades every year during Edinboro University's Homecoming Weekend she held a gathering at her house after the parade where former students, coworkers, and friends would come to share soup and baked goods together. She loved to knit and over the years donated blankets to Shriner's Hospital for Children in Erie and Akron Children's Hospital.
She was preceded in death by a sister, Carol.
