This article describes the life of Magaret Mason Perry La Farge, the wife of the artist John La Farge. For over half a century, she provided financial security and moral guidance for their seven children, offsetting her husband's propensity for financial and legal turmoil. It is a tribute to Margaret's resilience and dedication that the family prospered, and her children grew up to include a prolific architect, an artist, a successful businessman, and one of the leading Catholic priests of the twentieth century. This strong, resourceful, indomitable, loving, matriarchal woman lived a rich life which is characterized by La Farge and Yarnell in this article.
