Margie was first and foremost a dedicated mother to her two daughters. She treasured her two girls and embraced every moment spent with them. Her daughters always came first. She especially loved her role as Gee Gee to her two grandchildren, Cherie and Corey. Margie was a strong, fun loving woman with a great personality. She loved spending time with family and friends. Margie also loved watching football, tennis, and spending time nurturing her garden. Being one of ten children, she knew the meaning of sharing and patience. Forever cherishing the beautiful memories of our wonderful mother, we will miss her unconditional love, generosity and wit.
