Margaret grew up on a farm near Memphis, Nebraska and attended country school. On March 5, 1947, she married Otto "Jake" Bergman at Ithaca, Nebraska. Margaret and Otto lived near Weston, Nebraska until they moved to their farm east of Ceresco, Nebraska where Margaret stayed busy raising her son and daughter, milking cows and raising chickens, and working wherever she could on the farm. Throughout their early years together, Margaret and Otto enjoyed dancing and visiting with friends and family. The couple lived on the farm until 1987 when they retired and moved to Wahoo, Nebraska.
Margaret took pleasure in baking, playing cards and dominoes and attending her grandchildren's activities. She was a fixture at Wahoo (NE.)
