Margaret attended Saint Theresa Catholic School in Crowley, Louisiana under the strict teaching of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. She has always been a quiet and humble person. She had a strong faith in the power of prayer, her patron Saint was the Blessed Virgin Mother Mary and she prayed the rosary every day.
Margaret married the late James Irving Martin of Crowley, Louisiana at the age of seventeen on February 4, 1950 at St. Theresa The Little Flower Catholic Church. They moved to Beaumont, Texas January of 1952. To this union they welcomed seven children. Margaret leaves to mourn her children: Brenda (John) Leverette of Houston, TX., John Martin of Beaumont, TX., Bryan (Charlotte) Martin of Beaumont, TX., Ricky Martin of Beaumont, Tx., and Rosemary Martin of Beaumont, Tx., She also leave to mourn two nieces that she assisted in raising after the passing of their mother (Pearl Henney-Savoy); Geraldine (John) Arceneaux of Hopkins, SC., and Juanita (Robert) Robinson of Charlotte, NC.

Margaret was a dedicated member of the Knights of St. Peter Claver Ladies Auxiliary Court 28, Ladies Sodality, and the St. Joseph Altar Society of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. She later became a member of Our Lady of The Assumption Catholic Church and was faithful member of the Rosary Group. Her career spanned over 50 years of employment. She worked for Wyatt’s Cafeteria, Munro Cleaners and J.R. Parsley Janitorial Services. Although she enjoyed working for these large corporations, she found the most pleasure in working in the homes for what she called her extended families. She worked with several families throughout Southeast Texas.
There was never a dull moment growing up in the Martin household. Margaret enjoyed being surrounded by her family laughing and enjoying life, just as she did. She traveled many places, but she most enjoyed her many family trips to the casino. Margaret was not just a mother to her own seven she was everybody’s “Big Momma”.
