Margie was one of the most loving and generous people you could ever meet. She never would say no to anyone in need. She was "The Face of Shopko", as many people referred to her, due to her customer service and smile. She worked at Medicine Chest, Pamida and Shopko throughout the years. She enjoyed her job very much and always did anything she could to help. Margie was fiercely independent, brave, and determined. At a young age she lost her first husband with her two children but forged ahead on her own and focused on her family. For years, she decided to live with her children and chose to stay while her grandchildren were born. Nothing was more important to her than family. Years later though, she finally found her soulmate she had been waiting for. One summer visiting her sister in Nebraska, all it took was a few weeks and she decided it was time for her love story after all those years of waiting. She packed up and moved to Nebraska to be with Wayne. She had finally gotten her happily ever after. Little did she know the family would miss her so much they'd follow here right to Nebraska as well. She loved being with her brothers, sisters as well as her nieces and nephews and they were very important to her. She had a passion for gardening, fishing, and cooking. She was the holiday planner, organizer, and chef. She always wanted family to be together to make new memories. She was a gnome "connoisseur" as well, collecting numerous gnomes over the years. Margie and Wayne also collected Vaseline glass together and went on many road trips to find it.  Her positive attitude impacted many and made the world around her a better place. She was extremely proud of her children and grandchildren and told them every day. She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.
