Margaret was born on May 13, 1928, in Bogovic, on the island of Krk, Croatia, the daughter of Dinka and Anton Radic. After the war, Margaret married the love of her life, Paul Radich, on Feb. 3, 1951.

Margaret was a loving and doting wife, mother and grandmother who enjoyed cooking, baking, sewing, knitting, quilting, gardening and spending time with her family and friends. She did everything to the finest level, all self-taught. She was fun, independent and adventurous. But most of all, she loved Paul. 

In the past, she was a member of the Rosary Altar Society, Sunshine Society, East End Quilters, Southold Homemakers and the Adriatic Social Club of Southold. She was a woman of faith and a member of St. Patrick’s R.C. Church in Southold.
