Margaret was a wonderful cook, her specialty was pies and cinnamon rolls. Her sons-in-law suggested she could make a “million” by opening her own bakery.

Like many of her friends, she worked at Russell Stover Candy Factory and later retired from St. Elizabeth Hospital. On the day she passed, she was still mothering, suggesting her daughters should have worn coats since it was cold outside. She always remembered all birthdays and most importantly, never missed watching or listening to a Nebraska football game.

She is survived by two daughters, Marilyn Schulter and Janice (Allen) Soukup of Lincoln and son, Steven (Donna) Smith of Kearney; grandchildren, John Schulter, Kelsey Soukup, Jessica Zmek, Paige Rosenthal and Jacob Smith; eight great-grandchildren and a brother, Gerald Durst.
