Margaret Clegg was born on August 25, 1930 in Chicago to Ottilia & Rudolf Reschke. She was preceded in death by her brother William Reschke and survived by her sister, Ruth Barta. On October 18, 1952 she married Joseph E. Clegg (her “Joey”). They lived in Washington DC until Joseph was discharged from the Army. They moved to 79th Street in Unincorporated LaGrange where they raised their four children. As a longtime resident of LaGrange, she was very involved in her church, Trinity Lutheran in Burr Ridge and active member of the Ladies Aid Society. As a homemaker and mother, her love of children lead her to foster more than 50 babies. Her 13 grandchildren were her pride and joy. She enjoyed taking them on trips especially to Florida. In 1995 after Joseph retired, they decided to relocate to Florida. They built their dream home in New Port Richey where they resided together until he passed in October 2016. She continued to remain their home until her death.
