Margaret met Whitie in the summer of 1949 and her life was never the same. Wow what a journey! Keeping up with Whitie was a challenge but she was his equal in many ways. They were married in June of 1951 and made their home in Bethesda, Maryland. Whitie and Margaret had five children. Whitie dedicated himself to the commercial construction industry and after building together a successful company, Glen Construction, Whitie and Margaret retired to Loudoun County Virginia on the 475 acre property on the Potomac River that is now known as Tarara.
Margaret ran the winery retail operation for many years and during that time opened and ran the Bed & Breakfast that was also a part of the Tarara business. Margaret served on the original board for the Loudoun County Tourism Council that later became Visit Loudoun, the marketing arm for Loudoun County. She later would receive the Judy Patterson award from the County for her work. Margaret loved it all!
Today, Margaret enjoys all the friends and family that continue to be a part of Tarara Winery. You will see her around the property every day, so be sure to say "hi!"
