Margaret was born on June 2, 1941, in Dowagiac, to Richard & Elizabeth (Walsh) Guy. She graduated from Dowagiac Union High School in 1956. On Aug. 16, 1958, Margaret married the love of her life, Delmer Emmons, at Holy Maternity Catholic Church. The two were happily married for almost 59 years before his passing in 2017. She began her working career as a Mail Carrier for the Dowagiac Post Office and would eventually be promoted to Mail Clerk. After over 40 years of working for the Post Office Margaret retired. In her younger years, she enjoyed riding her motorcycle whenever possible. She also loved shopping, watching the Magnolia Network, Country Westerns, crossword puzzles, bird watching, baking food for her grandchildren, and most of all spending time with her dogs, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was an incredible lady who will be missed dearly by all who knew her.
