DeathShe died in 1875. 
BurialShe was buried at Elmira Mennonite Cemetery. 
NoteThe available transcription shows Margaret's name as Koins. This, or some approximation of this spelling, will have been her legal name at the time and the surname of her first husband. It is evident from the marriage registration that her maiden name was Schaefer.

The transcription of Elmira Mennonite Cemetery shows her given name as Catherine and she apparently died in 1875. Why her gravestone reads thus when her marriage registration shows her as Eva Margaret isn't at all clear.
