Margaret was born on April 24, 1943 in Detroit to Joseph Francis and Alice Rose (nee Zabik) Kasper. Four days after her eighteenth birthday, Margaret married the love of her life, Roderick "Rick" Drew, on April 28, 1961 in Anchorville, Michigan. While many doubted their love, the happy couple enjoyed fifty-nine wonderful years together. The couple was blessed with four children whom they loved and cherished. The couple made their first home in Roseville before settling in Warren for almost fifty years. Margaret worked for many years as a medical billing clerk at many hospitals and medical practices in the area. Above all else, Margaret enjoyed time spent as a wife, mother, and especially a grandmother. Margaret's love extended far beyond her own family and she was considered by many to be their own mother or grandmother. Margaret was also strong in her faith, which brought her great comfort in difficulties she faced throughout her life. She made sure her family was raised in a loving and faithful home. Margaret was a longtime parishioner of St. Malachy Catholic Church. She also enjoyed reading and crocheting up until she was no longer able. Margaret was the matriarch of her family; A title she wore with the grace, elegance and humility of a person who ascends to her position not by a desire to lead, but as result of a lifetime of experience and wisdom acquired in devotion to her family. She was a truly courageous woman who would let nothing stop her, even into the final days of her life. Her smile and kindness will truly be missed by all who knew her, but memories of her will continue on in all who loved her.
Margaret is survived by her loving husband Rick; devoted children Harold (Debbie) Drew, Janice Drew, Donna Phillips, and Trish (Kenneth) Lorenz; beloved grandchildren Robert (Jamie) Kirk, Nick (Karen) Drew, Raymond (Lauren) Kirk, Ashley Lorenz, Adam Drew, Chris Phillips, Brittany Lorenz, Josh Phillips, and Brad Drew; dear great-grandchildren Rayn, Audrey, Michael, Carson, and Hudson; siblings Marilynn, Michael, Martha, Jane, James, Stella, and Joan.
