Margaret Hays

Margaret Hays, a Skidmore bookstore worker for half a century, died in Saratoga Springs on October 29, 2004. She was 88.

Margaret began as an assistant in the Skidmore Shop in 1934. She became assistant store manager in 1969 and worked on the new campu until retiring in 1984 after 50 years of service. Onetime Skidmore Shop director Barbara Heron says Hays “devoted her life to the faculty and students of Skidmore.”

Margaret was also known as an excellent cook who loved plants and flowers.

Several nephews and nieces survived her.
