Margaret O. Green, a homemaker and former Dundalk resident, died of heart and lung failure Thursday at the Barbara Egan Nursing Home in Shrewsbury, Pa. She was 95.
She was born Margaret Ogle in Baltimore and raised on Eastern Avenue near Patterson Park. She was a graduate of Notre Dame Preparatory School. After attending business school, she was employed during the 1920s operating a comptometer -- an early adding machine -- at City Hall.
In 1929, she married Charles A. Green, a Bethlehem Steel Corp. accountant who died in 1990. She lived for 56 years on Flagship Road in Dundalk before moving to Brogue, Pa., in 1991.
Mrs. Green enjoyed cooking and entertaining and was especially known for her crab dishes, family members said. She also enjoyed doing handwork and reading.
She was a communicant of St. Rita Roman Catholic Church, 2970 Dunleer Road, Dundalk, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Survivors include a son, Charles O. Green of Largo, Fla.; a daughter, Ann G. Leffel of Brogue; a sister, Mary Ruth Knoerlein of Severna Park; five grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren.
