Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and aunt passed away with her family by her side on Saturday, January 29, 2022 at her residence. She was 91 years old. Margaret Ann Metiva was born on January 26, 1931 in Zilwaukee, Michigan to the late William and Edna (Colpean) Metiva. She married Kenneth Caldwell in 1971 at St. Matthews Catholic Church in Zilwaukee. Margaret was part owner of Kens Sewing Center and worked as a seamstress and bookkeeper, retiring after several years. She was a faithful member of St. Matthews Catholic Church and later, St. John Paul II Parish as well as the Moose Club for many years. Margaret was a woman of great faith and was a prayer warrior for many.

Margaret loved singing karaoke, dancing, solving crossword puzzles and enjoyed sewing. Margaret was a sociable person and always kept an eye on her neighbors. She will be remembered for standing in her window and waving to her loved ones as they left the house. But, what Margaret really loved most was having her family around and playing cards with them.
