Was born to William and Ruth Smolander on April 11, 1933. Margaret attended Cole School in Beecher and graduated from Beecher-Dunbar-Pembine Schools in 1951. After graduation Margaret attended Badger Business College in Green Bay.
Margaret and William Parr were married on May 24, 1958. One of the best cooks to ever live; her pies were too beautiful to cut. Margaret worked in the kitchen at Four Seasons as a teenager. One day she asked if she could bake for the employee’s dining hall, that night the cake she made was served in the guest’s dining room.
Margaret was very proud of her grandchildren and her great grandchildren, always carrying her “Brag Book” in her purse.

She was preceded in death by her husband William Parr; grandson, Clinton Parr; parents, William and Ruth Smolander; sisters: Lila Dalsanto and Arlene Smolander.
