Margie was always so welcoming when Emily would have us all over for slumber parties. She was very patient, which was required with us. I always wanted to go home bc I missed my mom but Margie would always make me feel comfortable, like her own child. She was a special lady and a wonderful mother. She will be missed but is now an angel in Heaven to continue to mother us. ❤️

So many memories of Mrs. Margie and Mr. Bob. Carpool rides at St. Edward to Burger King before soccer practice. Hanging out at the Stolt house watching movies for days on end. I remember her excitement when they redid the kitchen and bathroom. Road tripping to see some of the Rockensock family. She always had a book in her hand (purse or car). I don’t know how she put up with Kelly, Rachel, and I’s silly teenage girl antics, but she had the patience of a saint. I’m sure we drove her crazy sometimes (maybe a lot of times) and she wasn’t afraid to put us in our place (like when I took some chips out of the pantry one time). I know she loved us and how close the 3 of us were. She always lit up with so much joy when Matt, Ben, or Emily stopped by. I remember her spoon collection. She loved all her kids and grandkids and talked them up to everyone. Even when I moved to Louisiana, she kept in touch with me and that meant so much to me. She was like another mom to me with all the time I spent at her house. She will be greatly missed. I know she’s looking down on her family and making sure they’re all okay and happy. I will forever cherish all of the memories I had with her.

A Mother’s Love

Most people can understand,
how it feels when she holds your hand.
The way her kiss can put you at ease,
or how her hugs make you weak in the knees.
And some wont ever get to see,
the feeling of being loved unconditionally.

For example, there are times you’d just be sitting there,
And then you’d start to feel that stare....
Then you’d panic about stuff you didn’t do,
And exactly who did what to who.
You’re expecting the wooden spoon or flack,
But then she’d just say “I love you to the moon and back.”

You see our Mom wanted nothing more,
than to see her kids walk through the door.
Even if it was like one am or two
She’d wake up say “oh good I was waiting up for you.”
She loved to hear your voice on the phone,
and all she ever wanted was everyone at her home.

Moms can put our patience to the test,
but that’s just their way of making us our best.
So listen to your moms in everything that you do.
‘Cause there’s one thing that I’ve learned to be true,
With the exception of Jesus from heaven above,
only moms can give us unconditional love.

Margie was an amazing person! We haven’t seen Margie and Bob for several years, but cherish the great times we shared together.
May the Choirs of Angels come to greet her and take her to paradise!
Peace be with you all

Margie loved her children and grandchildren very much. She was an avid reader and loved to do crossword puzzles. Over the years she used these word skills to write many poems, frequently about her close friends and relatives. She recently expressed her feelings towards her children and grandchildren in a poem:

I never knew how much of a joy
Becoming a mother would be
I never knew how much love I’d feel
Or what a change in my life I would see.

As I watched my children mature
And have babies of their own
I discovered a new kind of love
Deeper than I had ever known.

I love my life, and my family too
And always my husband first
He has gotten me through some very hard times
Some we thought were surely the worst.

I have been lucky enough
To hear my grandchild’s new cry,
I have shared some changes in their lives
And they remain the apples of my eye.

The joy I feel when they come to me
And tell me of their love
Reminds me to take a quiet moment
And thank the Lord above.

I love them and spoil them
And get kisses in return
I now have the patience I wish I’d had
When my own were trying to learn.

Sometimes I forget to follow the rules,
I’m a Grandma, what can I say
If my children get upset with me
That’s why I had them anyway!

Margie was born in Ft. Eustis, VA, on May 31, 1953 while her father, Edward Rockensock, was stationed there during his enlistment in the US Navy. After being discharged, Margie, her father and mother Marjorie, and older brother Ed, moved back to her parents hometown of Elgin, IL. There Margie attended Columbia Elementary School, Larsen Jr. High School, and graduated from Elgin High School in 1971. Margie also has a younger sister, Lorna, and a younger brother Lance. Margie met her husband, Bob also from Elgin, while still in high school. After graduation, Margie worked as a telephone operator for Illinois Bell. Bob and Margie were married on August 19, 1972 in Elgin, IL. Bob and Margie then moved to Milwaukee, WI to allow Bob to complete his senior year of college at Marquette, University. There Margie continued to work as a telephone operator, supporting her student husband. Following Bob's graduation as a civil engineer in 1973, the couple moved to Nashville, TN to begin their new life together.

Bob and Margie's first child, Emily, was born on February 23, 1975. Two years later, their second child, Matthew, was born on July 5, 1977. Margie went back to work to help raise their young family at the Regional Intervention Program, a program that helps parents of young children. Bob and Margie's third child, Benjamin, was born on December 5, 1980 and their fourth child, Kelly, was born on January 26, 1987. Margie eventually changed jobs to work at her dream job, a bookseller at Borders Bookstore in Franklin, TN. There she got to satisfy her passion for books, and due to he magnetic personality she got to meet many country music celebrities who frequented the store. Shortly after Borders closed in 2011, Margie was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went through all of the normal cancer treatments including surgery, radiation and chemo treatments. In 2012 she successfully left cancer behind and started her new full time career as a grandmother to Emily's 3 children and Ben's 3 children. Over the years, Margie had numerous health issues but always had a positive attitude and took them in stride. As you can see in the photos, they couldn't stop her beautiful smile. Unfortunately breast cancer returned in 2019 and Margie passed away on July 1, 2019. Bob and Margie would have been married 47 years in August, 2019.

Margie wanted to leave everyone with one final poem:

I'm still here
though my body may be gone,
My Lord was waiting at the gate
as my soul was moving on.

Do not grieve or long for me
when you can't see my face,
Smile and picture all my love
in the glow of our Lord's grace.

I'm still alive in my children's eyes
and in their children's too,
They will show you I'm still here
in the little things they do.

Please laugh and love, and live your life
and when your life is through,
You will know that I'm still here
and I've been waiting for you.

Margie Ann Stolt
