Margaret was born on June 7, 1929 in Grove City, Minnesota to George and Esther (Kronback) Larson. She grew up on the family farm near Grove City and graduated from high school.

Her most memorable trips were to Greece following Apostle Paul’s second missionary journey, touring the Holy Land, and spending one entire summer traveling around the world. She was also an avid reader and loved her winter trips to Arizona. She also loved working in her flower garden and homemaking. She loved her Lord Jesus Christ, her family and friends, all of whom are blessed with a rich heritage.
