I've known this family for a long time and they have always been an example of great Christian love and grace. Margie was a wonderful woman who always put her family first. She was always ready to share what she had and do what she could for anyone in need. A lot of children(who have since grown up) benefited from her teachings and example in Sunday School and church. Her role as wife and mother were simply a role model for anyone. She always had a great smile and a good sense of humor. I am sad about her passing but so thankful she is now with her Lord and not in pain or distress.
