Together they had three children. They lived in Woodward, Oklahoma until his death in 1944. In 1946, Margaret married Ernest Miller.

In 1968 Ernest passed away. Margaret moved back to Woodward where she met and married James Davis. They lived in Woodward until his death. Margaret then moved to Sheridan, Wyoming, to be near her youngest daughter, Bessie Brewer.

Margaret, with only an 8th grade education, made sure her three children had a college education so they could support themselves in life. She attended many classes and became a life long learner. As an adult she learned to type, to swim, and she even became a nurse's aide. She worked as both a nurse's aide and a professional cook. In her spare time she loved to sew, sewing many beautiful quilts. She volunteered for many years at the VA Hospital in Sheridan, Wyoming, where she was honored with a 1,000 hours volunteer pin.
