She was born on Oct. 6, 1931, in East Orange, New Jersey. Margot married her high school sweetheart Carroll A. Priest, leading to fifty-six years together and eight loving children.

Margot was predeceased by her beloved husband, Carroll (Cap), and her firstborn daughter, Caren. She leaves behind her children: Charles and wife Cindy, Beverly and husband Alex, Lisa and husband John, Peter and partner Eva, Amy and partner Randy, Michael and wife Diana, and Ben and wife Sharon. She also leaves her cherished twenty-one grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.

Per Margot’s wishes no public services will be held.
