Margaret was born on December 9th, 1921 to Michael and Anna (Sudzina) Yusko in Sharon, PA. She was a graduate of Sharon High School and the Shenango Valley Commercial School. On July 30th, 1949 she married her husband, the late Dominic Falvo. Margaret worked as the office manager at Chevron Inc. in Mercer. Following her retirement at age 70, she started her college career at Penn State Shenango campus where she earned her associate’s degree in 1999. While attending, she took a leadership role in ASK or Adults Seeking Knowledge.

While at Penn State, Margaret served as President of Women in Transition in 2004 and was elected to Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities & Colleges in 2007.

She was a member of St. Bartholomew Catholic Church. Margaret volunteered at the Sharon Library literacy program, as a tutor for those learning English as a second language, and for the Mercer County Election office at polls for many elections.
