Margaret recently celebrated her 90th birthday with family and friends where she did what she loved to do; entertained all of her guests by playing the piano. Margaret lived most of her life in Lake Placid, New York. She began playing the piano at a very young age and continued to play at various establishments in the tri-lakes area throughout her lifetime. Margaret loved playing BINGO and developed many long-lasting friendships because of it. She also loved to bowl and was still an active bowler to the age of 89 in the local ladies' Toppers League!
