She accepted Jesus as her Savior at the age of twelve and remained a faithful and committed Christian all her life. Margie was a member of the Union Hall Baptist Church since September of 1964. The church was a very special part of her life, and she served the Lord and her church family in almost every avenue of service afforded to her. She always felt blessed to have one of her sons in fulltime ministry.
