There is a lot I could say about Margie, but it wouldn't capture her personality well enough. Margie was a character!

I have worked with Margie for many years and shared time in our personal lives together.

I am heartbroken for her family and all that will be deeply impacted with her passing. And saddened that I will not get to hear of her adventures she was so looking forward to having with Alan once they retired.

In my prayers & my heart

When I was new to working overtime on day shift and didn't know anyone on B shift Margie was quick to greet me and make me feel comfortable. She went above that and invited me to join her and Alan for lunch. I continued to share lunch with Margie and Alan almost every time I worked over for over a year. My husband and I have a similar work relationship to Margie and Alan, and I always admired how in love they were.

Momma was the best wife, mother, and ga-ga. She was my true life best friend, hero and the best I mean best ga-ga. She took all of it seriously. She loved everyone and God, could she make us smile. She was out going and was always there for the people she loved. She was always there for me through the good and the bad. She would drop everything when I called and was always there when I was sick or just needed to talk. The proudest day for her besides when she became a ga-ga, was the day she meet my dad.

Her voice was musical and the way she smelled was amazing. She will always be in all of our hearts. Thinking of her I think of her laughter and her ablitlity to brighten everyone's day. This world lost a true life angel. We will always love u momma to the moon and back!

I became the woman I am today because of her. I am proud and the luckiest person because she raised me! Fly high my beautiful momma! U live on in mine, Mike's, and my kids hearts forever. 💕

Mrs. Marjorie was a feisty lady that could have you in stitches. She will be remembered for her honesty, humor and for her impeccable nails which reflected that she was never boring, always bold. I am saddened for Allen’s loss; I looked forward to their tales traveling across the country once they retired. John and my thoughts go out to the Newells.

Marjorie was my first inspection teacher at Smith and Nephew . She said what she meant and meant what she said. She will be missed.
