  1. It very hard to know what to say at a time like this. Margie, the pesty childhood sister I never had and one of the dearest most generous adult friends you could have, always thinking of others. We will certanly miss you little sister, bye for now will meet again soon. Hugs, Betty

  2. I will remember Margie’s laugh, her wonderful smile and ability to “tell it like it is”. I feel honored to have known her.

  3. Though I didn’t know Margie, I know her Goddaughter, Charlene Lawrence, well. After reading her memorial, I can tell that Margie was a vibrant, intelligent woman who was loved by many. May she rest in peace, and may all who loved her remember the many good times they shared with her.

  4. I unfortunately did not know Margie personally. I knew her through her devoted God Child, Charlene Lawrence. Charlene, always spoke so highly of Margie and I am so sorry to hear of her passing. May Our Lord, Jesus Christ, be gracious to a kind and lovely woman and welcome her with open arms for a wonderful place next to him where she so deservedly belongs. With all my sympathy to those closest to her I give my love and regrets. Carol Grubb

  5. Margie, you are my life and my unconditional friend. My sister, I love you so much and those who know us know how perfectly aligned we were. Never has there been a brother so lucky as to have a sister such as you. I love you and I’ll see you in heaven along with all the other ancestors of yours and mine.

  6. Margie was one of a kind. I’ll always remember her for her laughter and love of family. She loved to join us at the Stout family reunion in Missouri. They aren’t quite the same when she isn’t there. I’ll miss her but I look forward to seeing her again in Heaven! She fought a long courageous battle! She loved and she was loved by so many.

  7. Aunt Margie always made us smile. She had a heart of gold. Margie cared for everyone and always had a kind word. It was always a pleasure to sit back and chat at the Reunion. She loved life and loved her family. She was a delight and will truly be missed. We love you, Aunt Margie.May you rest in peace and we will deeply miss you.
