2006 Volunteers of the Year

Margaret Oesch

Margaret Oesch

Quota International of Salem, OH

Margaret Oesch’s club for almost 30 years is proud to choose her as Volunteer of the Year! She is a past president, has held several offices, and has chaired the Membership Committee for many years.

Upon graduation from Salem High School, Margaret worked as a long distance operator for Ohio Bell. In 1951, she married Donald Frank Oesch, and she continued working until they started their family. She now has three married children, two married grandchildren, and is a great-grandmother of five! One of the boys is named after her husband—a proud day for all of them.

After her children started school, she went to work in the office of a local company. The owners are longtime friends, one of whom is a member of Quota, Rena Dunlap. Rena realized there was potential in Margaret to become a valuable Quotarian. Margaret joined in 1977 and continues to be a proud member. She is always looking for an ear willing to hear about all of the attributes of Salem Quota.

She is especially proud of our Speech and Hearing Clinic, which is unique to Quota International.

Margaret is a willing worker at all our fund-raisers and volunteers as a clinic receptionist. She is on the board of directors of the local domestic violence shelter and many times has taken our donations (by the truckloads, at times) to the center. She is very active in her church: manning the welcome center, ushering, contributing as a reader, serving funeral dinners, and most recently chairing their team that feeds the hungry and lonely at the Banquet of Salem. Salem’s local clean-up day sees Margaret participating in the name of Quota, and she also rings the bells for the Salvation Army.

Margaret is a true volunteer in Quota, her church, and the community!
