We are saddened to hear of the passing of our dear neighbor. Margie and her family were the first we met when we moved into our home 37 years ago. We watched her children grow as she did ours. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

So sad to hear this news. I consider her my friend and she was my across the street neighbor for many years in Newport. Prayers for her children and grandchildren. Very special lady!

It is never easy to lose a loved one, especially a mother. Tom and family remember all the memories and cherish them for they will last a lifetime. She is in a better place and may God Bless you all.
