Jeff and Jean Bubb -
There is a picture of a young Margie emerging from her grandparents house on Chestnut Street with the look of the future in her eyes, a thoroughly modern woman at the age of 10 years old who could envision her place in a the world as she saw it from the vantage point of her older relatives. Her whole family loved her for that very reason, for what she knew about them, and her ability to twist a fact from the past and bring them to tears with laughter. Margie had a wildly honest truthfulness about her and the "goings on" in and about the family so that she would let you talk yourself into a pickle a-huh, call you on it so politely, let you simmer with those piercing eyes, and then have you hoot and hollering with joy upon the reveal at the end. She 's watching and listening intently so do not think you will get away with something under her watchful eye! Forever young and forever in our hearts. Our Margie.
