Margaret D. Dahlin, born in Chicago, May 30, 1939 to Henry and Minnie Dean for whom she spoke glowingly throughout her lifetime.

She leaves behind 17 grandchildren. Margaret was past president of the Oswego County Foster Parents Association and she and her husband, Roger, cared for 81 foster children over a 28-year period. Peg grew up in Kansas and loved the nuns and her classmates at St. Agnes High in Overland Park. In the fall of 1956, her father was transferred to Syracuse and she graduated from St. Anthony's High in 1957.
