Elsie "Margie" Twigger

June 13, 1961January 3, 2020

Twigger, Elsie "Margie", 58, of Tamarac, went to be with the Lord January 3, 2020. Margie was born June 13, 1961 in Hoboken, New Jersey to Raul Palacios and Elsa Fuentes. She enjoyed being in the pool or at the beach sipping a cool margarita. People will remember her as warm hearted, beautiful inside and out. Some might say, she didn't know a stranger. The most important aspect of her life was building memories with her children and family. She is a hero in more ways than we will ever know, but in death she was also a hero. She was an organ donor and she was able to save the lives of three other people. Those left to cherish her memory are her sons, Benjamin Twigger, Matthew Twigger, daughter, Nicole Twigger, her parents, one sister and two brothers. The family will receive friends on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, 6:00 - 10:00pm at Church by the Glades - Evans Chapel, 400 Lakeview Drive, Coral Springs where a Celebration of Life Service will be held between 8:00 - 8:30pm.

I met Margie 35 years ago and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to have so many wonderful memories of her. Margie was always kind and thoughtful. Each morning we worked in Charlotte together, we started our day with Margie making us an international coffee while we planned out the day.
My deepest sympathy to her family. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

I could never have asked for a better stepmom to my daughter Holly. While we didn’t see each other often, we shared a unique friendship that I will always treasure. Margie will be greatly missed and I am so glad to have called her a friend.

To Margie's Family....
You are in my thoughts and prayers. I met Margie at Eastern Airlines, System One in the network center years and years ago. She was such a friendly and kind person, very disarming and always smiling. Eileen Gibbons

Dear family, I'm part of the Perspecta Networking team. I have been her manger and team lead for 5 years. We worked with on HP, HPE, DXC, and Perspecta. I recall when I hired her to our team. It seem like it was yesterday. She was inspiration to the team and organization. There wasn't a task she couldn't complete. She often talked about her family and excited on the move to FL. Margie will be missed. My family to yours.... Peace and Blessings. Ernest.

Margie was a wonderful lady and I have nothing but fond memories from our working days at Eastern Air Lines. May her family take comfort in the many memories she left behind and know they will see her again. Karen and I offer our deepest sympathies.

I met Margie in Miami at Eastern. But we became very close friends when we both moved to Charlotte. She was a bride’s maid in my wedding. We bought a successful rental house together. (Her idea!!). I love her and miss her. She was such a caring person and GREAT Mom. I know God is taking care of her. May HE bring comfort to her family. Margie, you will always be in my thoughts.

To Margie’s children, who she spoke of with so much pride, to her Parents and Siblings:
My thoughts accompany your pain and I am so sorry for your loss.
I worked with Margie at the Comms Center for System One in Miami, many moons back, she was a seasoned fighter when I started and upon receiving my wings, Margie arranged to take me on my first flight with her to New York. We skated in Rockefeller Square and went to Central Park and she was kind to me always. She always included me on jet skiing and windsurfing and I was and am grateful to her for caring. I went on my first ski trip to Beech Mountain with her and her brother where she did her best to teach me.
I loved Margie and I am very saddened by this news. I am certain that her spirit looks over her loved ones and she is not far from our hearts. And for some reason I was thinking of her on the 4th and reminiscing and thought to contact her.
I will not be able to be there for her Memorial because I live across the Atlantic.
To my dear friend Margie, you live on in my heart—thank you for being my friend.
God Bless you and accompany you.
With Love,

Ms. Twigger... I remember countless, scorching-hot afternoons playing a baseball game with Ben and Matt. Margie rarely missed a game. She was always so supportive of her sons and the teams they played on. I can hear her now telling Ben to hustle down to first base. Or trying to get Matt to keep his head up after a strike-out. It's been a while since I've had the privilege of calling Ben and Matt my teammates, but those memories will live on forever. To Ben and Matt's (and Nicole's) biggest fan, Rest in Peace.

I was privileged to work with Margie, one of the best person ever, a very resourceful person that you would ever want to lose. Any time I reached out to her for help or any question, she was always there for me.

To the family of Margie, I pray that God gives you the strength to carry on as it is never a easy thing to lose a loved one. Death is a mystery and no human being understands it except for our Maker. May God's Grace be sufficient enough as you celebrate a life well lived for Margie and treasure the memories that she has left behind

Finally, Margie will be dearly missed by everyone that she touched- me being one of them. May the good Lord grant Margie's soul eternal peace. RIP
