Family was most important to Margery;  Holidays, dinners, and family gatherings were what she loved the most.  Margery was passionate about arts and crafts, knitting, quilting, etc. and most importantly enjoying the company of the many unique individuals she encountered throughout her lifetime.  


Margery will be deeply missed by immediate family and relatives as well as her many life long acquaintances and friendships that she made along the way.
