Mrs. Ferrell was my high school English teacher my senior year at Udall High School. I remember I received an A for a term paper I made on Walt Disney. I have to say, English was not my best subject, but I was so proud of the grade she gave me. I don't think I ever told her "Thank You". She was one of the Best Teachers I had in High School. Thank you to her family for sharing her with me. Prayers 🙏 to her family in this difficult time.

Mrs. Ferrell was an amazing woman. She taught me to be a better person and English all at the same time. She taught us respect by treating us with love and respect. I have remembered many lessons throughout my life that she taught us and thought of her often during my life. She is the reason I write and speak properly. I know she would have been happy to know what a huge impact she had on me. I regret not staying in touch with her. Prayers for all of the family. Please know she was loved by many of her students💕

Margie was such a wonderful woman! I loved, loved, loved it when Ted & Margie would visit the Austin area. Margie made me feel so loved & always spoke well of family, friends, and the special ministry work her & Ted did. It was special to listen to all they did together & I enjoyed to see the love they had for each other. I remember the visit to the Oasis that Steve, Janice, Ted, Margie & I took for dinner out. The view was awesome, and when the sun set everyone in the whole place would applaud as was the custom. Ted & Margie were bewildered by that until we explained what it was about. We all had a good laugh about that! She will be missed & still loved. Janet

Margie was an inspiration to me!! I loved making bears with her every Tuesday for years. She was "real" and I loved that about her. I'm sad that I wasn't able to tell her that in person and give her a hug. My thoughts and prayers are with Ted and the rest of her family at this sad time.
Hugs to all of you - Jenni Harris

We know both know Margie and Ted through their son Steve. Steve lived across the street from us in Austin, Texas. About once a year the Ferrells stopped in to check in with Steve and Ted and Margie always took on a few projects around the house. It always stirred up some excitement for the whole street when they stopped in. We always enjoyed the visits, the shared meals, the drinking of coffee and some backyard sing alongs. One thing can always be said, Margie was always welcomed and great company. We should all strive to be great company.

If we have but one regret was that our travels since retirement and curtailed because of Covid-19 never sent us through Wichita for a return visit to the two of them. It was certainly always on our bucket list. We will get there one day but it won't seem right without our good friend Margie.

May God provide some kind comfort to Ted, the kids and the Grand Kids in this difficult time. Rest now Margie while you keep those that we've previously said good bye engaged with your great company that you shared with us here on earth.
