It was wonderful to have known you and to have shared a short time as we have. God bless you. I will miss you, until we meet again my friend.
Uncle Bob, Katie, Mike, and family,
Your family has been part of our family before any of us kids was thought of. Aunt Margie has been my mom’s best friend since they were four, I think that made them more like an honorary sister. I never knew Aunt Margie as anything else, she was my Aunt, she was always so funny and making jokes. I remember going camping when I was younger and Aunt Margie made sure we didn’t miss anything from home she would bring the Tv, VCR, toaster, and I think she even brought a microwave one time, lol. She was a fun free spirit who loved you kids so much!! Heaven sure gained an angel, love you guys. Sending hugs and deepest condolences.
We will miss seeing Marjorie and “Miley” at our office. They always brought smiles to our faces when they would come in. Marjorie loved her “Miley” so much. Our condolences to the family. We were blessed to have known her.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and Prayers . In case you did not know Miley passed away a few days ago also & was cremated and Buried with Marjorie today. Again thank you so much , God Bless
Thank you so much Danielle, your thoughts and prayers mean so much to our family . I look back on those days and have very fond memories.
I remember Margie as a happy, easygoing gal who loved to laugh! She spent a lot of time at my house growing up and my sister Lindy’s best friend. Margie will be missed by so many. Rest in God Margie. 💕
