    Very saddened to learn of Margie’s passing. She was among my closest friends in high-school.
    We had so many good times and memories in the late 60’s and beyond. The last time I talked
    to her , she was selling Kirby vacuums in the Maplewood Mall and met the love of her life, and
    moving out of state. I lost track of her when I moved to Duluth. She was a “jewel” and very
    creative and had many friends. She was always smiling. Rest in peace sweet Foxy lady;
    you will never be forgotten.
