My deepest condolences to the McLay family.

I will forever remember Marjorie as a good friend to all and a

mother who loved her children and grandchildren with all her

heart. She was the best mom she knew how to be. She was a

mother that sacrificed all she had for her family, gave all she

could give until she had nothing left to give. Charity is her


May you celebrate the life she lived, the many sacrifices she

made on your behalf, honor the wonderful memories she leaves

behind and know the love she shared will stay in your hearts

forever. May you remember the simple moments such as her

sweet smile and comforting words when you were in need of

comfort. In your memories may you see her smile, her soft

spoken words, her kindness,and her warm embrace.

I too have lost my mother, so I know what you are going

through. I honor her memory by being the best I could be.

May the Lord be with you all during this most trying time. My

thoughts and prayers will be with you.

John Mclay and Family my Condolences. I enjoyed hearing how your mom was getting along step by step. I felt like I knew her. I had the pleasure of growing up with John and seeing what a great husband he is to Jill and a wonderful step dad and he has always been a true friend, I know by his strong character that his mom was a special woman with a heart of gold. God bless her soul. Trish Dyer

I first met Margie when we lived on Revere Street. Her youngest daughter Sonya and my oldest daughter Jennifer were and are the best of childhood friends. We would sit and chat while our daughters played. She was always warm and welcoming of us, me being a single young mom at the time, I welcomed her knowledge and her passion for her children and church. She was my daughters second mom and a good friend. I'm sorry I didn't get to see her these past years; I should have made the effort to do so.
Margie, I know you are smiling down upon your legacy, free of pain and in the loving arms Christ. Rest in Peace Dear Lady.
