Returning to Ohio after graduation, she worked at a local grocery store and helped others with childcare, which allowed her to meet her future husband, Les. Throughout their marriage, they lived in Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Illinois before eventually moving back near her home community. Throughout her married life she raised her children, enjoyed canning, sewing, and cooking, and helped to serve others. Later in life she married Harley Himes and enjoyed volunteering at Mennonite Central Committee's Connections in Kidron. Upon Harley's passing, she moved to Sunbury, Ohio to live with her daughter where she also spent time with two of her granddaughters and their families. Margaret was a member of Salem Mennonite Church, Kidron and attended Vineyard Church of Delaware County while living in Sunbury.
