    We certainly loved Margie. We enjoyed many Christmas gift giving together with Margie, Rhonda, and Bev. She even became my grandkids other grandma-Grandma Margie. There wasn’t a mean bone in her body. How many times she “taught” Alan how to make iced tea-we will never know. She will certainly be missed.

    Bev, Kim, & Greg, & family, Loved growing up with your mom as a neighbor and knowing she always had an open door policy. Loved the many after church snacks I enjoyed in her home. She always showed so much love to those around her. Can’t remember very many times when there wasn’t a smile on her face. Know she’ll be missed by all. Love and prayers. Nina
