March 7, 1933July 7, 2019

The family of Margie Simmons Benfield would like to share that Margie went to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Sunday July 7, 2019. Margie retired from Kmart and had also worked at Western Auto prior to that. She was a faithful member of Evangel Temple Assembly of God and served there many years. She was born on March 7, 1933 to Mary and Lloyd Simmons in Columbus County, NC. Margie was preceded in death by her husband Joseph Wayne Benfield, her brother Robert Simmons and her infant son Joseph Samuel Benfield. She is survived by her siblings Carol Martein, Tommy and James Simmons. 3 living children - David Michael Simmons, Laura Benfield Creel (Michael), Joseph William Benfield (Debbie). Her grandchildren - Aleshia Simmons Rigdon (Levi), Ceressa Simmons Anthony (William), Gordon Michael Creel (Sharon), Joseph Tyler Benfield, Cody Green, and Ernie and Brian Taylor. Her great grandchildren - Zoe, Drew, and Lola Anthony, Trinity and Levi Rigdon, Frederick and Everett Creel and Kierstyn Taylor. Margie’s greatest joys were her family and her church. She also had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh. We will miss our mother, grandmother, and GG but we are assured that because of our collected belief in Christ Jesus, we will be reunited all together with our precious mother in heaven either at our departure or the glorious rapture. Margie’s family will receive visitors from family and friends on Monday, July 15th, 2019 from 6-8 pm at the Hardage Giddens Funeral Home located at 7242 Normandy Blvd.

I am so sadden to hear this news about Ms Margie. She had the biggest smile and shared comfort and encouragement to me in our both missing our husbands. She loved, loved, loved talking about her great grands and always was excited to share a new photo. I know she is now rejoicing in heaven and has that beautiful smile seeing her Savior. Blessings to all her family. Love Ms Marilan (Evangel Temple member and former secretary of FBC of Boulougne)
