Margie was an avid reader and devoted attendee of the Nevada Pilgrim Holiness Church. She will be remembered for many things namely her love of children, family, reading, love of birds and her love for God. She enjoyed Sunday walks in the family woods with Bill for many years, family gatherings during the holidays and the famous Ohio shotgun deer season week, coloring, reading and board games with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, and feeding her birds and squirrels throughout the winters. She could often be found in her younger years in her chair with two or three grandkids gathered round or in her lap listening to her read stacks of stories, singing rhymes and ditties with her grand-kids, babysitting a group of kids, outside working in her yard or garden, or riding to town or church with Bill driving. In her later years, she could be found playing board games, helping feed 4-H calves, reading her Bible or a book with her dog Sweetie or a grand-pup nearby, doing crossword puzzles or chatting on the phone with a friend or relative. She always had an open door and an open ear, great life advice and encouragement, a big smile, a hug or “I love you”. She was not above teasing and aggravating her kids or grand-kids. She was especially well versed in cheating at board games and acted innocent when she did it. The memories and special moments of her life could go on and on. She was an exceptional and rare woman and will be missed and remembered fondly by her many family members, friends, neighbors, and church.
