Margaret was born in Chicago in 1936 and grew up in Marshalltown, IA.  She married Keith Nimmo in December of 1956 before completing her Bachelor’s degree at Iowa State University in May of 1957.  In the following years, Keith’s work for the 3M Company brought them to Afton, MN, where they settled and raised their family.

Margaret was devoted to her family and took special delight in her grandchildren.  She loved music, reading, crosswords and puzzle solving, gardening, travel, and especially the company of her friends and family.
