     She met George Bohn, a WWII veteran and after dating for some time, the two married on April 27, 1950.  In the early years of their marriage, they enjoyed dancing.  They were active members of St. Peter Catholic Church in Chillicothe. They also enjoyed many family gatherings and she enjoyed her bridge club and creating ceramic pieces.   The Bohn’s moved to towns in Indiana, Minnesota and Wisconsin before locating in 1972 to Kearney, Nebraska.  She was nicknamed “Mickie” by her family and close friends and was a kind, good friend, a loving person who was generous with her time, talents and treasures. She was currently a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Spencer.  In September of 2014, Margaret moved to Riverview Terrace Assisted Living and later to St. Luke Lutheran Home in Spencer.
