Margaret was born a triplet on May 18, 1937, in Breckenridge, Texas, to the late J.S. (Sid) Rhodes and Dixie Belle McFall. She grew up and attended school in Breckenridge. After graduation Margaret attended Business College. After college she married Alvin F. Kiphen on May 2, 1959, in Breckenridge. Margaret was a longtime employee of Walls Manufacturing.  She enjoyed her time as a Crossing Guard for Meridian ISD children, which she enjoyed for several years. Margaret spent a lifetime enjoying her children. While they were young, she took her children fishing and swimming at the lake, and played baseball with them in the yard.
