Margie a cousin of mine - I did not see Margie in our later years but corresponded at holiday times I loved her positive notes and her love of painting her faith - she visited my mother Eva Helm in Elk Rapids periodically which was very special to my mother-she was inspirational.

When this scared little 6 yr old moved into her familys home, after travelling for many days from California, Margie was very kind, and sweet to her young cousin. Rest in peace, cousin.

Margie was a friend to everyone! She had the kindest heart and was always giving to others. Her endless love for everyone made her one of a kind. She loved everyone. She looked for the good in everyone. She was always fun to be around. She sang beautifully and added her beautiful harmony to our music. Her mission on Earth was to spread God's love. I hope God gives her a special recognition for all the love she gave to us. I will miss you dear cousin!

Fun with all the Lengyel sisters at their home in Grand Blanc, is one of my favorite memories. It was so much fun to be a visiting part of a big family. Margie was the perfect oldest sister. Wise enough to be sensible and young enough to laugh and have fun and take us places.
My heart hurts for you all.
Love and prayers

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Marge since I was 4 years old. Her laugh her smile and her positive energy will forever be in my heart. So many wonderful memories but I will always remember her giving Heather and I the freedom to be creative and encouraging us that we can do anything we put our minds to. (even if the outcome was questionable)
Love you forever and always.
