Senior Portrait: Margaret

Libby Rahl

In our first ‘Senior Portraits’ last spring, we heard from assisted-living and nursing-home residents who spend their timefollowing restaurant newsstaying up on motorcycle trends and reminiscing. 

Today we hear from Margaret, a Baltimore County resident. She worked as a surgical technician for more than 40 years, and now Margaret is enjoying the freedom that comes with retirement. Margaret says her weekly schedule includes line dancing, weight lifting and doing "whatever pleases me."  

Producer Jamyla Kay went to a Catholic Charities’ Senior Community in Reisterstown, and brings us this ‘Senior Portrait.’

In this web extra, Margaret gives some advice to young people.
