Margaret Tusha, 87, Lead and formerly of Gillette, passed away Friday, January 26, 2018, at Deadwood Regional Hospital with family by her side.

Margaret was born the third of five children to Parks and Emma (Hebner) duPont on May 23, 1930, in Nisland, SD.  She attended school in Lead, SD, and worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
