Born in Newark, NJ to the late Mary and Edward Feeney, Margaret attended Our Lady of Good Counsel high school and went on to study at Rutgers-Newark. It was there where she met her husband, William, to whom she was married for 53 years before his passing in 2005. Prior to her marriage, Margaret worked for Bell Telephone and the Newark Star Ledger. She devoted her life to her family and volunteering. Before moving to Roseland, Margaret was the den mother for Clark Cub Scout Den 1 and a member of St. John the Apostle Church’s Rosary Society. Upon moving to Roseland in 1968, Margaret was a member of the Roseland Woman’s Club and the Roseland Historic Society.

For the last 13 years, she was the “assistant to the assistant” of the Office of Religious Education. Margaret was recently recognized with an award for her dedicated service to Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Church at the parish’s first-ever Evening of Gratitude dinner. Margaret was a two-term president of the Summit chapter of the Christ Child Society. In addition, every Wednesday for 30 years, Margaret prayed the rosary with her friends in the Rosary Support Group of Roseland.
