Margie was a selfless friend, a caring sister and a loving aunt. Her innate compassion and kind spirit brightened every life she touched. She was a talented pianist and lover of music, never forgetting the words to her favorite songs. While she lived in St. Petersburg, Fla., she was actively involved in charity work for over 20 years, especially in Boley's Angels, the American Heart Association and the SPCA. She had a deep affection for animals, especially her horse Tommy, her dogs Honey Girl and Juliet, and her cat Kuhi.
With her big heart, witty sense of humor, and infectious laugh, she will be deeply missed by all. Margie's family sincerely appreciates the Magnolia Springs family and special friends Lynn and Laura for being so wonderful to her.
