ALBANY — Margaret A. McConnell passed away peacefully on April 11, surrounded by her loving family.

Margaret was born in Schenectady to Clinton and Catherine McConnell. She attended St Joseph’s Catholic grade school, Draper Middle School and High School. After she graduated high school, she went on to graduate from Mildred Elley Business School with a degree in Secretarial Science. She also went on to graduate from Hudson Valley Community College with a degree in Accounting.

Margaret worked for Knolls Atomic Power lab for 40 years, retiring in 1988. She had many interests besides spending time with her family and friends. She loved to travel, play golf and sing for the Schenectady Light Opera. Margaret also was into her genealogy and was able to trace her family to Cork County, Ireland. She most of all loved to garden, spending many hours cultivating her garden to perfection.

Margaret is survived by her sister, Marie Blackman; her niece, Terry  McConnell-Beshara (Michael); nephew, Greg  McConnell (Marsha); and great nephew, Christopher  McConnell. She had many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews whom she loved very dearly.

She was predeceased by her parents; her brothers, John Garvey, Clinton  McConnell and William Luke  McConnell; and her niece, Amy Margaret  McConnell.
