Margie was the best neighbor ever! We shared many laughs and tears through the years. I learned a lot about life when I walked the mall with her and her sister. Even though we moved, we always felt very close to Margie and felt blessed to call her friend.

May the Peace & Love of Jesus Christ be with all of the family at this very difficult time.

I met Marjorie at the Parkview YMCA in a silver sneakers class. She was such a sweet soul and was so kind and friendly to everyone. RIP Marjorie ❤️😢
