Mom, we all love you mom and miss you. Now I'll never be able to beat you at Skip-Bo.

Jeff, Adriana, Benjamin, Andrew

So sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Leland and Frances Foster

Jerry and Margie were so encouraging to us when we came to Blue Ridge Bible Church, now Word of Grace Fellowship, and made us feel so welcome. We know the loss of this sweet, godly woman will affect all those who knew her. Our prayers and love go out to all her family.

Tom and Teresa Purinton

We have many good memories. One was when Mark was in college and we celebrated Thanksgiving with your family. Margie knew it was also Marks birthday and she graciously made him the central theme that day. A special birthday plate and sitting at the head of the table. He acted embarrassed but down deep I’m sure he was enjoying it all

Nancy Moore

I've known Margie since I was a teenager. My sister Sheran was married to Doug DeMonbrun (Jerry's brother) and our families were close for years. I will always remember Margie as fun loving and laughter came easy. I will miss her being on the planet. She contributed so much. May your journey be peaceful and joyful.

Sandy Starkey

My deepest and most heartfelt condolences for your loss.
