What a sweet and godly woman. Marge was a wonderful member of our church. She always made everyone feel as though they were very special to her. We will miss her tremendously but heaven has indeed gained a new angel. God speed, Marge, until we meet again.

A candle has been lit!

Aunt Margie was such a kind and positive person. Her smile and attitude would cheer myself and her sister, my mother, up always. She was one of a kind and will be sorely missed. I can't think of Savannah without her there. Much love to her daughters and my cousins, Marce and Kathy.
