  1. We are so very sorry for your loss. Margie was such a sweet and funny lady. She will be missed. Praying for all of her family and friends. ❤️

  2. I’ve known Margaret for over 20 years. We worked at Pleasant Company and then Harmon together. Fifteen of those years we sat side by side. We talked about our kids and our grandkids and shared our family pictures. She was the reason I got up for work on cold winters mornings. I will miss her so much.
    My condolences and love to all the kids and grandkids. She was a great Mom and Grandma and my dear friend.

  3. My deepest sympathy to Margie’s family. I went to grade school and high school with her in Thorp. My fondest memory of her is her teaching me how to knit when I was in high school. She was a very sweet person.
