Happy 100th, Margaret Barnett!

Today is Margaret Barnett’s birthday. She’s 100 years young.

Margaret and her husband Roy — a pathologist — arrived in Westport in 1954. They wanted a bigger house than the one in Norwalk, for their growing family.

The couple raised 3 children — John, Edith and Teddy — here. Margaret was very active in the Norwalk Symphony, Earthplace and the Democratic Women of Westport.

She played tennis — quite well — through her 70s.

Happy birthday, to a woman who has given this town so much, for so many years!
