Margaret was born November 28, 1921, in Mitchellville, IA, to Maurice and Eunice Mason. She graduated from Mitchellville High School. At an early age, she contributed to the family dairy operation by soliciting new customers. In return for her hard work, she would receive the new customer’s first month’s receipts. In June of 1942, she married Robert F. Lewis. Shortly thereafter, Robert entered the U.S. Army, and Margaret went to work as a secretary for the State of Iowa. She later became the business manager for Lewis Signage Co. until her retirement in 1986. Margaret loved animals, all wildlife, and watching and feeding the birds.

Margaret is survived by several cousins, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; three children, Robert, Rebecca and Diane; and her husband, Robert.

Graveside services will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, May 4, 2011, at the Mitchellville Cemetery.
