She was reared in a large mining family, by the time she reached the age of 16 it was required of her to leave school and start work to support her family. After many years of working in South Africa she was recruited by Anglo-American Mining Company to work in Southern Rhodesia in 1950. It was while in Rhodesia that she met and married Obe Veldman; they had one son, Roy Alexander Veldman. In 1988, Margaret immigrated to America and settled in Waxahachie, Texas where she worked for the Social Security Administration until she retired at the age of 74. Margaret moved to Corsicana in 2004 settling in Friendship Towers and then Brookdale until she passed away peacefully on November 7, 2018. Margaret came from the old school of honesty, integrity, frugality, and hard work. She loved her work and her family and was curious about all things. Margaret Hope will be treasured and missed by her loved ones.
