It was during this time that she met her future husband and fellow former pupil, Stewart Anton, Class of 1943. They married in 1958.

Margaret enjoyed travelling and toured Europe with school friends before settling down. In her later years, she travelled to Botswana, India and Malawi to visit her son Alastair and to Norway to visit her granddaughter Siobhan.
