I'm so sorry Margie passed away. I live near her and she was always such a kind lady. Sending peace to her family. I know how much she loved her children and grandchildren.

What a wonderful life Marg had, surrounded by her big, devoted family. Her generous nature touched so many lives. Her door was always open to anyone to come have a cup of coffee and share the news of the day! We loved challenging ourselves to remember names, dates, events. When we couldn’t, someone was assigned to find out and bring it the next time! We were constantly amazed by her ability to recall facts...especially about football!

She meant the world to me! She was a good listener and advisor when I needed one. She will be sorely missed.
