Mrs. Margie was a loving, prayerful and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, and was the cornerstone of her family. She, along with her husband, raised three children, two of which were special-needs children. She was a longtime parishioner of the Church of the Assumption who had a very close and personal relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ and a strong devotion to our heavenly mother Mary through praying the rosary often. She was also a member of the Catholic Daughters, Court Assumption. Many will remember Mrs. Margie from her long career in the grocery business, having worked for 15 years for National Supermarket and then another 20 years for Franklin Supermarket, where she was employed as office manager. She was loved by all who knew her and loved everyone she met.
