Margaret played the role of a “Kiewit spouse”, supporting her husband’s work efforts while spending most of her time raising her five children and attending their extra-curricular school activities. As her family grew with the addition of sixteen grandchildren, Margaret was in her element, babysitting and teaching her children and grandchildren lifelong lessons that will be passed on to her great-grandchildren in due time.
As with her husband, Margaret was a person of faith, giving of her time, talent, and treasure to her Church, the community, and those in need. These efforts were part of her fabric and that was what made her likeable and easy to approach. She was once asked what her proudest moment was…and she responded, “What gave her the greatest sense of accomplishment was seeing her five children continue to practice their faith and attend Sunday Church Services into adulthood and passing on this gift of faith to her grandchildren.”
