I'm the youngest in our family of 13 children. When I was born Margie was in high school. Our Mom told me that Margie and Mary (my sister closest in age to Margie), wanted to name me and another sister. We were born in the 1940's and Roy Rogers and Dale Evans were the big movie stars. So Margie and Mary wanted to name me and my other sister after the movie star's two girls, Linda Ann and Cheryl Darlene.
Guess our Mom just ran out of names. Lol

Our Mom also told me that I was Margie's "project" for her Homemaking Class in school and I still have the booklet that she made about me when I was a baby! Of course I wasn't spoiled I just got everything I wanted!! Lol

Since there was about 16 years' difference in our ages, my first recollection of Margie was when she and her husband Claude would come to visit us.

Margie always had a sweet spirit about her and took great care of her children and home.

She will join our parents, other siblings, her husband and two daughters in Heaven.

Many of my best childhood memories are when Mom & I lived with Grandma Harvey in the late 70s. I got to sleep in Uncle Bill's old room & had a "fort" that I spent virtually all day in. Grandma always had a smile on her face & made the best banana pudding. I remember she'd make me come to her after a bath because she loved the "smell of shampoo" but in reality she was just making sure I used soap & shampoo. Pretty sneaky. Lol. I remember Grandma as being a really hard worker too. I think she had worked at Borden & Packard. She would send me a birthday card w $5 or $10 because she didn't have much. I'll always remember her sweetness & generosity. I'm not sure how Heaven works but I suppose she'll be overjoyed to be reunited with Aunt Janelle & Mom!

I remember when growing up in the country, Margie was always scared of “ granddaddy” spiders. Our eldest brother, Vernon, would chase her through the woods holding his fingers as though he held a “ granddaddy spider” but in reality, had empty fingers. She would be screaming and he would laugh for days afterwards recalling how scared she was and he had nothing in his fingers..
Margie and I were close in ages and often double dated, I was always thought to be older than her, as she was so shy and I was the opposite, outgoing.
We often got sent from the table , by our Dad,for bouts of uncontrollable giggles. He was very stern and said , “we come to the table to eat, not play”. The least thing said would cause us to get tickled and we would start giggling, even just a meeting of our eyes across the table would set us off.
