Margaret was born on April 19, 1928 in Schuyler, Nebraska to Amos and Gertrude (Chase) Svoboda. She attended school in Schuyler and graduated from Schuyler High. On September 15, 1947 Margaret was united in marriage to John M. Reinecke at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church in Schuyler.

Family was extremely important to Margaret, she looked forward to her daily visits with her sons or the spontaneous phone calls from her grandchildren or sister Elizabeth. She loved spending time in her garden tending to her many flowers and vegetables, she had several bird feeders she filled regularly to watch the birds come and go and she absolutely loved her dogs. Her appearance meant a lot to her whether she was running errands around town or cheering on the Huskers in her living room, you could always bet, Margaret had her hair done and her nails painted.

Throughout her time in Schuyler, Margaret helped with many different organizations like the Girl Scouts, volunteering at the Benedictine Center, and the St. Augustine’s Altar Society, she attended church regularly and even founded one of the church’s bible study groups. She was a founding member of the Keep Schuyler Beautiful group and the Schuyler Garden Club. She always managed to find time to get together with friends for a game of Bridge, and was always the biggest supporter of her husband John and boys Dave and Jeff down at the dealership, as long as you gave her advanced notice that someone bought the car she was currently driving.

Survivors include her sons: Dave (Sharan Stoltenberg) Reinecke, and Jeff (Susan) Reinecke both of Schuyler, grandchildren: Molly Reinecke, Adam (Melody) Nelson, Clint (fiancé Mekailah) Reinecke, and Dan (fiancé Melissa) Reinecke and six great-grandchildren; sister Elizabeth Svoboda; sisters-in-law Mary Svoboda and Karen Reinecke as well as many nieces and nephews.

Margaret is preceded in death by her parents, husband John in 1997, son Stephen in 1968, siblings Mary Alice (Francis A.) Rea, Amos Svoboda Jr., Sally (Glenn L.) Barry, Suzanne Svoboda, and Francis Svoboda, brother-in-law Bob Reinecke and sister-in-law Jean (Peter) Markovich.
