Margaret C. (Stevens) Smith, 78, of Winthrop NY, passed away peacefully Friday, June 24, 2022, at her home after a courageous health battle, surrounded by her loving family who meant the world to her.
She was born on November 17, 1943, in Copiague, NY, daughter of the late Francis W. and Agnes C. Stevens, of Wilmington, MA.

Smith but later moved to NY where Robert’s family resides.
Prior to retiring, Margaret worked as a home health care aid for Cerebral Palsy for many years where she enjoyed caring for people.
Prior to her health battle most nights you could find her playing cards with friends and drinking her Quik Chocolate Milk. She enjoyed watching all sports whether it be football, hockey or baseball, but was an avid New England Sports fan, especially her NE Patriots. She would often call her sons and brother to talk about the games. She has always had a love of animals especially her birds and her dog Aggie who passed last year. Let us not forget her love of Elvis, all things Elvis. She loved being outside surrounded by flowers and enjoying the nice weather. Margaret especially loved and cherished her family above all. She would often talk about her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
