Margaret was a Scandinavian cleaner who apparently worked for Laura Collins when she lived in Phoenix, Arizona. She was thought to have died in a fire that broke out in the apartment shortly after Laura left it. Laura claimed that Margaret was physically of a similar build to herself, hence the authorities confusion when it was thought it had been Laura that perished in the fire (144).

It's highly likely that Margaret didn't in fact exist and was simply a ruse on Laura's part to explain away her own nature as an immortal phoenix.
