Margie cherished spending time with family and friends and blessed them with her delicious, homemade baked goods. She was instrumental in preparing the judges’ lunch for the New Raymer Fair for many years. Her chocolate and pecan pies were always a hit at the lunch stands during the fair. She enjoyed quilting, embroidering, and cultivating huge vegetable and flower gardens each summer. For many years, she raised Boston Terrier Bulldogs.
