Her half sister, Jean Kincaid Hepper, resides in Georgia.  She is survived by her two children, Peter G.K. Bentley of Jamestown, N.Y. and Anna Bentley Dawson (John B. Dawson) of Venice, Fla.;. her three grandchildren, John Bilton Dawson, Jr. (Chip) of Nye, Mont., Amy Dawson Stover (David) of Pepper Pike, Ohio and Sara Dawson Gregory (Michael, Jr.) of Saratoga Springs, N.Y.   

She was a proud great-grandmother of John Bilton Dawson, III (Trey), Madeline Margaret Dawson, Owen Kincaid Dawson, Bentley Dawson Stover, Samuel Cholley Stover, Jackson Donald Stover, Michael William Gregory, III, Margaret Grace Gregory, Mark Walker Gregory and John Dawson Gregory.

Margaret graduated from the Ellis School in Pittsburgh and from Cornell University in 1936, where she was a member of the crew team.  She resided for many years in Chautauqua County, N.Y., where she worked as a news editor at the Jamestown Post Journal.  She was a regular contributor to the Post Journal after she retired with her bi-weekly column, “Stop, Look and Listen.”

In 1963, she married Travis and in 1976 they moved to Powell, Wyo., where she worked for the Powell Tribune. Upon Travis’s death, she then became a full-time resident in Nye, Mont., where she was very active in the Stillwater Valley community. Nye was her favorite place on earth and she loved to have visitors so she could show off her little slice of paradise. Margaret loved to travel and spend time with her family and great-grandchildren.
