Margit was born in Bihardancsháza, Austria-Hungary (present-day Hungary) on 2 May 1898. She got married to Lajos Rezső Buzáky in the early 1920s and moved to the city of Debrecen after the wedding.

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.
