The daughter of the late Harry and Mary Watson Brien, she was born on December 13, 1928 in Middletown. She graduated from Middletown High School in 1946 and then married Donald Watters on November 26, 1947 in Middletown. She worked for Truman Moon School for over 30 years.

Margaret was an active and dedicated member of United Presbyterian Church in Middletown.

She was also very active in her community and volunteered for 25 years at Orange Regional Medical Center, provided tutoring for children in need and delivered Meals on Wheels. With all of her other endeavors, she still always made time for her love of reading and was a lifetime Yankees fan.
