Born on Rich Neck Farm on Grove Neck in
MD, to Ralph
Sr. and Marian Long Bailey. Margaret attended a oneroom school house known as Stumptown College on Stemmers Run Road in Earleville.

She married, began a family and enjoyed a full career with Elkton Banking and Trust Company which later merged with PNC Bank.
Margaret was a 70-year member of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church where she served on the Altar Guild, a number of special committees and projects and, for a time, as the church’s treasurer. She was also, more recently, a member of the Lower Cecil County Senior Citizens where she enjoyed many friendships and weekly outings. Margaret grew daffodils and loved all flowers.
