Rae Margolis died at home on July 25 after a short illness. She was 92 years old.

Rae is survived by her husband of almost 68 years, Isadore Earl “Bucky” Margolis, her sister, Shirley Disend, her children Jay (Anne) Margolis, Jill Margolis, and Paul (Deena) Margolis. Rae was the loving grandmother of Rena (Matt) Schaikewitz, Sari (Shai) Kopitnikoff, Shira (Ben) Sacks, Dovid (Oshrat) Margolis, Evan (Alexa Picciotto) Margolis, Joshua Margolis, and Dylan Margolis, and she was the loving great-grandmother of Natanel, Yael Nava, Leora, Adina, Yosef Schaikewitz, Yehuda and Azi Kopitnikoff, and Elinora Sacks. Rae was predeceased by her parents, Jack and Ella Spector.

Born in Wyomissing, PA in 1929, Rae met Bucky Margolis on a blind date in 1953 and married him three months later. Rae graduated from University of Maryland with honors, had careers in clothing sales and real estate sales, and as a long-time volunteer at the Visitor Center at the Inner Harbor.

Rae was dedicated to her family, made life-long friends everywhere she went in the world, flew kites, parasailed, loved to tell a good joke, played harmonica badly but never quit, learned magic tricks and belly-dancing, and she loved music and theatre. Rae never signed a birthday card, instead affixing a signed post-it note so the recipient could reuse the card. Rae was unfailingly optimistic and encouraging.

Services will be private, with interment at Baltimore Hebrew cemetery. Please omit flowers. Contributions in her memory may be sent to the charitable organization of your choice. Due to COVID-19 considerations, shiva services will be privately organized. Please contact the family if you would like to arrange a visit.
