“Seize the Day Peggy! Go for It”. These were the inspirational words that I always think of when I remember “Sweet Margie”. Margie & daughter Diane met me on one of my Delta layovers in Paris where I gave them one of my quick tours , with a gourmet French dinner of course! My friend Alanah, (who introduced me to Margie,) & I took Margie to my Retirement party at the Delta Hangar in 2002. We were able to take her on the DC3, the airplane that Margie flew on in the 1940’s as one of the first “stewardesses” in US history.
Margie will remain in my heart forever & I still miss our “leftover dinners” at her house with her younger friends. Margie was “Everyone’s Mom & Friend”. Thank you to her children for letting us share her!!!!!!

Margie was a delight to know, pure joy. I will always remember her beautiful smile and the twinkle in her eyes, her beautiful soul shined through those eyes.
Margie loved her lipstick and made sure she put in on before going anywhere.
She loved telling stories of her stewardess days with the airlines and leaving to marry her loving husband Keats.
She certainly will be missed. My condolences to all her family and friends. RIP
