Plus, numerous cherished friends from Austin and here in Huntsville, Texas.
Margie was committed to helping all she came in contact with, especially the generations of students that she assisted for over 20 years at Mance Park. She was a kind and loving soul who loved children and had an incredible sense of adventure and love of life, which she spread to everyone she knew. Many people sought her help on a wide range of topics ranging from health issues to normal day-to-day issues of living. She was many things to many people, but above all, her proudest role was that of Grandmother.
