Margaret loved playing with her grand kids, going to the island located off Swansboro in the Intercoastal Waterway, she also enjoyed going to the Cape, flying kites, camping and spending time with family. She and her late husband Ron were known to shag on their front porch on Sundays as they listened to Beach Music. She owned and operated Adams Appliances for many years. She, along with her husband Ron, owned and operated Woodbridge Funeral Home in Havelock. Margaret was extremely compassionate, and her compassion stood out as she helped families in their time of need.
