Enjoyed knowing Margie and always pleasant to be with, a fine lady . Love and prayers to all at this sad time.
Deepest condolences to Jim and Martha and all their loved ones over the death of a truly exceptional, delightful and beautiful lady. As a child I played football in Margie's grandparents' yard on Winchester road and was struck by Margie's wit and toughness from the beginning, as she played football right alongside the boys........Rest in peace, dearest Margie, and know that you will be sorely missed. With love always, Graddy Johnson, Lexington
