Margie Evelyn Moran McCulloch, age 90, Russellville, passed away on Monday, March 13, 2017 at Russellville Hospital.
Margie possessed a strong resilience and silent strength that was admired by her neighbors, friends, and family while being a model of self-sacrifice so that others around her might have more. The Valedictorian of her graduating class, she offered a stoic wisdom appreciated by those who loved her. She lived through the Great Depression and WWII having lost her father at a very young age, existing as a part of what Tom Brokaw called “The Greatest Generation”. Margie was extremely proud of the legacy she had fostered in three wonderful children, seven successful grandchildren; and seven beautiful great-grandchildren. Those who knew her know that when she loved, she loved with all her heart, and when she helped, she did so with all her strength. Most people go through life wondering if they made a difference in the lives of the people who surrounded them, Margie didn’t have that problem.
