I had the pleasure of getting to know Margie when we worked at GTE. She impressed me, at first meeting, by being outgoing,humorous, and so welcoming to this newcomer. Ever after, seeing her was like watching a room light up with her presence. Whenever I would see her, volunteering at the front desk at Windber Medical Center's HealthStyles, she would greet me as if I were a dear friend whose presence made her day - when in fact, it was HER presence who made MY day. Her warmth and good cheer are missed!

Sending prayers for the highest and best good of her soul.

Margie was such a vibrant, fun person to be around, I will always remember Friday night bowling at the Richland Lanes for the Windber Falcons, what a character. You couldn't help but laugh when she did. And always kind. Our heartfelt sympathy for Jo Ann and the family.
