Margaret was born January 26, 1930 in rural Dickinson to John and Christine (Metz) Staudinger. She grew up in Richardton and helped on her family farm. Margie met her sweetheart, Eugene Tormaschy in the spring of 1952 at Gene’s cousin’s wedding dance and the couple was married on June 29, 1953 at St Mary’s in Richardton. Margie moved down to Texas for a year with her son Gary, while Gene was enlisted in the Army. The couple moved back to North Dakota and together they bought a farm northeast of Gladstone where they raised their seven children; Gary, Carol, Allen, Dale, Diane, Nell and Amy.

Margie was a farm wife who was known for her huge garden. She milked many cows and sold her cream along with chickens and eggs.
