She met her future husband, David Dawson, in high school. They were married in April, 1966. The union of David and Margaret produced four children, a son Timothy Eugene, and three daughters; Jennifer Marie (Curtis), Miri Anne (Caldwell) and Christine Joy (Ferry). Margaret lived in Chatsworth, California and attended the Chatsworth Foursquare Church as the children grew. As retirement came, Margaret and her husband relocated to Pahrump, Nevada where she attended Faith Fellowship Foursquare Church up until heaven received her on May 28, 2014.

Margaret's early years were focused on working within the Los Angeles Unified School District where she was a Special Education assistant and provided after school enrichment programs for the students by directing various plays and performances.
