Margaret Ann Hagg was born on December 27, 1951, in Granite Falls, Minnesota. She was the daughter of Albert and Celesta (Stark) Hagg. Margaret grew up in Marshall, Minnesota, attending and graduated with the Marshall High School, class of 1969. She then moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to work various places as an office administrator.
In 1980, Margaret moved to Ft. Myers, Florida, where she worked at the Pink Shell Family Resort. She was united in marriage to Marlyn Jones in Ft. Myers in 1981. She loved the beach and enjoyed her time in Florida until 1987, when the couple moved to Custer, South Dakota, to work at a resort in the Black Hills. The couple shared 16 years of marriage before Marlyn died suddenly in 1997. Margaret then went to work in the accounting department at the Crazy Horse Memorial, which she loved. 2006 brought a move back to Marshall and she began her work as a paraprofessional in the Marshall Public Schools, where she was still employed.
