Margaret E. Deutsch passed away peacefully on Thursday, Feb. 26, 2009, at the Hunterdon Medical Center after a long battle with Parkinson's disease. She was 92.
Margaret was born on June 24, 1916, in New York City, the daughter of Baltazar and Mathilde Eichinger. She grew up in Cranford and began a secretarial career at a very young age at American Dye Stuff in New York City, later holding positions in both the public and private sector.
In 1945, Margaret married William A. Deutsch. With a primary focus as a homemaker, Margaret volunteered for the American Red Cross and as a Girl Scout leader and was active in the Union Village Methodist Church.
In 1960, Margaret, Bill, and their three daughters moved to their circa 1749 farmhouse in Chester Township, where the family enjoyed country life and took regular vacations, experiencing most continental National Parks.
She was an avid gardener, knitter, seamstress, cook, decorator, rug braider, and collected and refinished antiques.
Margaret and Bill retired to Marietta, Ga. in 1974 and became active in the Pioneers Club, the Georgia's Cobb County Gem and Mineral Society, enjoyed "rock hounding" and Lapidary Workshops.
With a flair for entertaining, Margaret planned bridge luncheons, dinner parties and picnics for both friends and organizations. In later years, Margaret and Bill traveled extensively.
William predeceased Margaret in 1993. She is survived by her daughters, Linda, Lois, and Annamarie Deutsch, all of N.J.; her beloved sisters, Anne Keating of California, Helen Reis of Minnesota, and Elsa Mann of Oregon, and 10 nieces and nephews. Her brother, John, predeceased her in 1994.
