Margaret Louise (Sandeen) Quigley was born September 12, 1935, in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, the daughter of Ernest and Margaret N. (Norman) Sandeen. She graduated from Olds High School and earned her teacher’s degree from Iowa Wesleyan College. She taught 4th grade at Keota Elementary. On August 1, 1959, she was united in marriage to Jack Quigley. Margaret later worked at the United Presbyterian Home as a nurse’s aide for 19 years. Margaret was a member of the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Washington, where she was active in sewing and quilting groups. She loved cheering for the Iowa Women’s Basketball team for over 30 years with their season tickets. In her earlier years she looked forward to her Wednesday lady’s crafting group at the Bob Redlinger home and also enjoyed sending cards to people. Her grandsons were the light of her life, and she loved spending time with them.

Survivors include her son Jay (Christal) Quigley of Washington, grandsons Mason and Trevor Quigley, her niece Marjorie Beckman and nephew Ralph Sandeen.

Preceding Margaret in death were her parents, her husband Jack (2020), and infant brother and her brother Carl Sandeen.
