Burgeson were united in marriage on Sept. 4, 1938, at Phillipsburg, Kan. To this union three daughters, Coleene, DeLane and Vicki, were born. Margaret devoted her life to taking care of her family. She was a member of the Berean Church and enjoyed painting, woodcarving and sewing. She loved spending time with her family and her pets.
