Margie was a wonderful neighbor and will be missed very much. She always wanted to do for others, but never wanted anything in return. Most of the time Margie did not want you to do anything for her. Margie would sacrifice and go without things to help others.

Margie was a sweet dear lady and we are going to miss her so much at The Salvation Army. She loved to ring the bells at Christmas and loved her special friends at Boomers & Beyond. Our love and prayers go out to all the family.

Margie was always a good Christian. She was always helping someone even if she did without herself she would help anyone. She was a loving, caring person.
She was our adopted Mom. We knew that she loved us becase she always told us. We loved her and she knew it too.
You will never be forgotten and will always be loved and missed. We still love you Marge. Your adopted children Rick, Geraldine, Breda and Mike
