Margaret E.'s Story
Margaret E. Wizeman, 82, born in Palmyra, NY, where she graduated from Palmyra High School. In 1952, Margaret moved to Niagara Falls to attend Buffalo State Teachers College where she received a Bachelor's and later a Master's Degree in Library Science.
Margaret was a teacher and librarian in the Niagara Falls school district where she taught for more than 30 years. A devout Catholic, after retiring, Margaret volunteered in the gift shops at Mt. Saint Mary's Hospital and Our Lady of Peace Nursing Home for more than 10 years. She sent birthday cards and Christmas presents to every family member, and people she thought of as family, every year. Margaret loved to travel and the experiences she had with her friends and family on her many trips. Margaret incorporated many mementos from her travels into her home. She loved 'flutter-bys' (butterflies) and bells and had an impressive collection, including butterfly wings on the front of her home.
She is predeceased by her parents, Theresa and Louis Wizeman; siblings, Kathleen Wizeman Lewis, Joseph Wizeman, Patricia Wizeman and Joan Wizeman Poulson. Survived by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews; and dear friend, Rick Malfa and family.
