Margaret married Eugene A. King Nov. 23, 1943, Thanksgiving Day, at St Paul’s Lutheran Church in Bloomer. They lived in Gilmanton, until 1949, when they moved to Holcombe. Then, in 1955, they moved to Cadott, where she was a stay-at-home housewife, raised her three children and became involved in her community.
