COLUMBIA - Margie Louise Rawlinson, 75, passed away on September 27, 2020. A graveside service will be held 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, September 30, 2020 in Greenlawn Memorial Park. A livestream of the service will begin at 2:55 pm on the Dunbar Funeral Home - Devine Facebook page:

A native of Columbia, she was born June 23, 1945 to Wade and Emma Rawlinson. Margie was a graduate of Spartanburg Methodist College and retired from First Citizens Bank of South Carolina with 36 years of service.

To know Margie was to love her, she had a zest for life and was an inspiration to so many people. She will be remembered for her infectious and contagions laugh; if she was laughing in a room full of people you could always point her laugh out and if she laughing you were bound to follow. She enjoyed gardening, caring for her pets, spending her pennies at Harrah’s Casino, family gatherings and holidays. Most importantly, Margie loved to entertain around her swimming pool. Thirty-two years ago she purchased a pool but what she got was so much more, by striking up a friendship, she gained a family that welcomed her with open arms.

Margie held her First Citizen’s family in a special place in her heart, she enjoyed their lunch outings and vacations all over the globe including; Switzerland, Germany, Jamaica, Mexico and the Virgin Islands.

Those left to cherish her memory include her longtime friends and caretaker, Sharon Broome and family the Spivey family, Janice Simmons and family, the Crosby family, the DeLoach family, the Walker family, the Walters family and Terri Miller.

Just last weekend, I was going through some greeting cards I had received over the years from Margie and other friends at First Citizens. The cards reminded me of what a joy it was to work with Margie and to know her. So it is a tremendous shock to learn of Margie's passing today. Rest in peace dear friend.

I haven't seen Margie in many years but have always had a special place in my heart for her. When I first began my career with First Citizens over 19 years ago, I don't know if I would have made it if Margie had not taken me under her wing and I will be forever grateful. If I was in a bad mood or stressed out, her humor and laugh would always lighten my spirits. Rest in peace my friend!

Margie knew how to light up the room with her smile and laughter. Whenever she joined our birthdays or family celebrations, she would be in the mix talking and enjoying herself. She was a good neighbor and friend. She will be missed. It was a pleasure to know her. Cheryle & Tom Waller

I will always have fond memories of Margie playing softball. She loved playing ball no matter how much her knees ached! I enjoyed our lunches together while working. When I started at First Citizens Margie took me under her wing and we became great friends. Margie had an infectious smile and laugh. All who knew her loved her. She will be missed. She loved people and animals. Miss Emma was always proud of Margie. I grew up two houses up from where Margie lived. The oldest of 6 we grew up feeding the ducks at cemetary. I am sorry to hear that you no longer can feed the ducks without involving the police. Very sad and they will miss Margie. Goodbye my friend. Thanks for the fond memories and laughs. Until we meet again....

My heartfelt condolences. I live in Tennessee now so won't be able to say goodbye in person, but will light a candle in her honor at 3pm today. I will remember her her empathy, compassion and most of all, her infectious laugh. Rest in peace my friend.

Margie and I would go daily to the Greenlawn Cemetery to feed the feral cats and geese (we would buy corn for the geese). Both the cats and the geese became familiar with us and would come when called. I can still hear Margie calling “Boys and girls, boys and girls” and the geese would fly to us from all over the cemetery. The cats responded to her calls of “Mew, mew - mew, mew”. We loved doing it. Unfortunately, a new manager took over the cemetery who decided that the cats and geese would leave if people stopped feeding them (which is not true) so signs were posted banning the feeding of both. Of course we ignored them and would sneak in to feed them anyway. But, we were spotted and the police were called and we were banned from the cemetery or face arrest. Oh well.

Well Margie, you cannot be banned now because your final resting place is where we had so much enjoyment. The geese will watch over you as you Rest In Peace. Yes, they are still there. These memories will stay with me always - it was always the highlight of our day, particularly when we would sneak in through the bushes trying to stay out of sight and laughing at the ridiculousness of the whole thing.

My deepest sympathy to your dear friend Sharon and other friends and family. Joy Zimmer
