Margie was a lifelong resident of Thorndale and class of 1942. She owned multiple bars and cafes with her husband, also working at Thorndale Independent School District in the cafeteria. She was known by all as a strong, sweet and hard headed woman. She wanted to do everything on her own, mowing her grass and making her yard as beautiful as possible. She enjoyed playing rummy, dominos and UNO with her grandkids and laughing when she whooped our butts. She loved hanging out with her best friends Elvira Calvin and Donna Fisher.
A celebration of Margie’s life will be held at St. Paul Cemetery Friday, Feb. 21, 2020, at 3 p.m. where she will be laid to rest alongside her husband
