Margaret was born Sept. 24, 1922, daughter of Harry and Mae (Hawley) Halbleib of McNabb. After graduating from Magnolia Swaney High School, she married Joe Eattoni on November 26, 1942, who preceded her in death in 1999.
Margaret loved being a farmer's wife and belonging to numerous local organizations throughout her life time: Grange, Home Extension, Eastern Star, and United Methodist Women. Her passions in life were her family, gardening and flowers, jigsaw puzzles, bird watching, baking pies, playing cards, especially with her sisters-in-law every Sunday night, and having lunch after church with her beloved McNabb Methodist church family.
She is survived by her four children: Janice (Marshall) Balding of St. Charles, IL, Josie Andrew of Cedar Rapids, IA, Gail (George) Piccolo of Aurora, IL, and Joey (Connie) Eattoni of Hennepin, IL. Also surviving are 10 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.
