Margie was such a kind soul! We had only met online through YT, but she was well loved. She was always so kind to us and just a beacon of positivity. We shared many emails and stories together throughout the years. She had such a deep love for her family, her children and grandchildren. And was a strong prayer warrior! She was a staple and treasure in our online community. We will miss her laughs, her advice, and her uplifting spirit. Rest in paradise sweet Margie. Till we meet again. Sending love and condolences to her family.

I am so sorry to hear about this. I grew up in Norview knowing my friend Robin Coopers sister Margie. She was the sweetest person I have ever met. She will be missed and glad she is feeling no more pain and in Heaven with the Lord. My condolences to Delores and Robin and family.
Even tho I have only chatted with Margie a few times, I felt like I had known her forever. I know she will be missed and I pray Yah will comfort you all.
I will forever miss you, I have known you since I was a baby, I wish I had got to see you one more time, your love and kindness will forever be in my heart, I love you, and your family and friends are in my prayers
Angie and Mrs. Deloris and family who I have heard so much about through Angie my coworker whom I adore and consider a good friend. My heart goes out to you all. I can see just from the obituary what a wonderful person Margie is. I know she’s with Jesus what a comfort. On this earth we still have grief, you will be in my thoughts and prayers Ivy Moon
