I have fond memories of Grandma Margie, especially around the holidays
On Saint Patrick's Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas she decorated her apartment . She always had a cheerful smile and a soft voice. She gave good advice, she was always there for Aubree and I, to lend a helping hand. She was the perfect traditional Grandma, that I never had, until she came along. She'll always have a special place in my heart. I will miss her dearly, and I hope that if I get to go to heaven, I know I will see her there. Love you always, Grandma Margie! 🙏💜, Danny

Thank you for reaching out to me and making me feel like part of the family.
I will forever cherish our long phone conversations.
We used to send letters back and forth and I could not wait for the next one.
I’m so sorry I let too much time pass and fell out of touch with you.
I wish I could have taken the chance to meet you in person.
Love you

When I was young, we traveled from Illinois to Arizona for our family summer vacations to visit Aunt Margie. We always looked forward to these trips. One time we walked to what she called a dime store so we could get souvenirs to take home. She was buying and wanted us to get something pretty to sit on our dresser. After 40+ years I still have this trinket and will treasure it forever.
On a rare occasion she would travel to Illinois, usually for the Edmond Family Reunion we would go there to see her. We loved our visits with her.
In later years I kept in touch with her by phone. We would catch up and she would always have a story or two to tell. She was always very SPECIAL to me. I will miss her dearly.

Debbie and Family so sorry for your loss. Love and Prayers to all of you.

Aunt Margie always had a sweet smile for everyone. She loved her family more than anything. I was very lucky to be part of that. Love and prayers to Debbie and family. The brothers and sisters are all together now.

This photo was taken a week before she passed... Who would've guessed her time would come so soon afterwards. But that was my great-grandma! Always full of life and as strong as an ox — a true fighter. She loved life, but most importantly, she loved the people in her life. Family and friends meant EVERYTHING to her! They kept her going. And if you were a new face, she made sure you felt apart of the crowd, always welcoming others with warm, open arms. I have so many lovely memories of her growing up as she babysat me, then living with her 'til she took her last breath. As a child, I always thought she was an angel who accidentally fell off a cloud, landing in Gibson City IL, and at precisely 12:40 AM on 10/15/2020 she finally made her way back to heaven after spending 93 years here on earth.

As always grandma, I love you TOO MUCH! to the moon and beyond ♡

Aunt Margie has always been a very special lady. Even though I am one of the many nieces and nephews of the Edmonds family, when I would talk with Aunt Margie you always knew how much she loved you. And she would willingly share her love with all that needed it.

Debbie, I am so sorry for your loss. Sending love and prayers to you and all the grandchildren. She will be missed.

Margie was my favorite Aunt!
I was always so happy when her visits back to Illinois from Phoenix would happen-the visits seemed so far apart and oh so short! It was so nice to be close to Aunt Margie again when I moved to Phoenix in 1979.
Margie was quite the family historian and seemed to know everything about our family histories.
Margie had so many funny stories about life and family to tell. She offered kind words of advice when asked and was a trusted confidante.

The first part of an old hymn has been on my mind this week:
‘Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee; ‘

Today it seems to mean more than ever before.

My condolences to Deb, Becky, Junior and their families-I will be there in spirit celebrating Margie’s life with you.
