Margaret Lux

Margaret Lucille Lux, daughter of John Christian Broders and Helen Ethel Wright, was born January 17, 1930 in Jefferson, Iowa. Margaret died on October 6, 2018 at Regency Park Nursing and Rehabilitation in Jefferson at the age of 88 years.

Margaret was a lifelong resident of Jefferson. She was always a hard worker and cared lovingly for her five children. Margaret had worked at Saba’s Bakery and White Cleaners, but was perhaps remembered best as a wonderful baby-sitter. She cared for so many children in addition to her own. In 1964, Margaret was joined in marriage with Orman Lux in Nebraska. The couple owned and operated Bumpers Tap. Margaret was a member of Central Christian Church, enjoyed trips to the casinos and her trips to Las Vegas. She watched some television, but her biggest joy was her family and spending time with them.
