Margit was born on 2 May 1898, in Bihardancsháza, Austria-Hungary (present-day Hungary). She got married to Lajos Rezső Buzáky in the early 1920s and moved to the city of Debrecen after the wedding. She worked as a housewife in all her life. She had to suffer tragedies during her lifetime, although she herself was seldom sick. Her husband died in Austria during WWII.

At age 100, it was reported that although Margit’s hearing and eyesight had got worse, she was mentally still very healthy. She would listen to the radio and lot and help in easy kitchen tasks.
