I worked with Margie for several years in the early years of Outpatient Surgicare Center (Daycare Surgery Center). Margie seemed to always enjoy her work and was enjoyable to work with. My condolences to the family in your loss.

Mrs. Lamb was so comforting as I was a 17-year-old mother in labor not knowing what to expect at SwedishAmerican Hospital on July 10, 1975. She was such a wonderful person. Then, on Sunday, November 19, 1978 she was still working there and talked me through the labor of my second child also born there. If it wasn't for Mrs. Lamb, I would have felt a lot more uncomfortable. She was a true angel who took her calling as a labor nurse extremely seriously. She was a true blessing. I have thought of her many times since then, but now she has gone onto her eternal reward. She lived a great life helping others on earth. With deepest sympathy, Kristin Ricker

Margie was a huge part of my youth, she was one of the sweetest and kindest souls. I specifically remember her cooking and all of the church events. I will miss her but, know that I will see her again one day.

"And THEN........"
I will always remember Margie because when I first started working at Fairhaven she was so friendly and welcoming to me! She would always ask me to come sit with her if I could and talk a bit. I would come in a few minutes early so I could do that.
She was so sweet!
Sorry for your loss.
She will be missed!
