Margaret Preiss


Margaret Preiss, age 54 of New York, died suddenly on Wednesday, February 1, 2017.

Margaret moved to Wayne with her family when she was just five years old. She graduated from Wayne Valley High School with the class of 1980 and earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion from New Hampshire College. She began her career in the retail fashion industry soon thereafter and has worked for several retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. Margaret loved living in Manhattan and although her apartment was small, she made room for lots of family photos.

Her younger brother, Walter, recalls Margaret as a loving and protective big sister when they were children. They shared many memories at their aunt’s house in Egg Harbor on the Jersey Shore. Margaret was able to travel and had toured throughout Europe, but she especially loved vacationing on Cape Cod. She volunteered at a local hospital and enjoyed spending time with the elderly patients there. She was a kind and loving soul.

Margaret is survived by her brother Walter of Wayne, by her Aunt Else Preiss of Summit, NJ and Florida. Margaret was predeceased by her parents; Sonja R. Preiss (2005), and George Preiss (2004).

A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date. Check back here for updates.

We are both shocked and saddened by Margie's passing. She was one of the gentlest, kindest & sweetest human beings. It was a pleasure watching her grow up. It was admirable to witness her devotion to her parents who also died prematurely. What a loss! Now she can join her parents. God bless
