Aunt Margie lived a long and amazing life. I can remember when we lived across the street how my girls would see aunt Margie come out and they had to go visit and help her water her plants. They would all set on the swing together. Sweet memories. My condolences. Love Mark and Donna McCauley
Rest softly in the arms of our Lord.
Will see you on the other side ✝️

Aunt Margie was wonderful and loving to all who knew her. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
Love, Judy Kelly Bell
My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family, especially Linda and her daughter Debbie.
I remember Aunt Margie well from my childhood – especially when she and Uncle Earnest owned a grocery store in Whitesboro. I have fond memories of coming over and eating lunch at the store – Uncle Earnest preparing something in the meat area usually and Aunt Margie at the register area. They were on my aunts and uncles favorites list. Joyce and I offer our sympathy to the entire family and especially to Linda and Johnny.
