She was a nurturing and caring mother, especially to her son Michael’s special needs. In later years she enjoyed watching television, playing cards on her iPad, daily Facetime calls to her daughter and grandchildren who live in Wales, United Kingdom, and was a die-hard Cleveland Browns fan. .

She leaves behind to cherish her memory her daughter Michelle (Stephen) Griffiths; grandchildren Gwyn and Carys Griffiths; her nephew, Jesse, who looked to her as a second mother; and many other nieces and nephews. Margaret was preceded in death by her parents; son Michael J. Matovich; sisters Patricia Collins and Cathy Curry; and brothers Jesse, Robert, Richard and Jimmy Boughner.
