A people person with a huge personality, Margie spent the majority of her career in the transportation industry. She worked in public and private sectors, for the U.S. Government and several government contractors. After many years of service she retired from Northrop Grumman as manager of Transportation and Household Goods, Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville, AL.
Margie upheld an ethical and professional business standard throughout her career and was recognized for her efforts with several awards.
Upon retirement, Margie returned to her hometown of Heflin to live near her daughter and son-in-law.
Lovingly known to them as “Nana,” she delighted in visits from her great-grands, offering them stories, snacks, and much fun.
She enjoyed antiques, shoes, a coke over ice, crab claws, the sun, lemons, family gatherings, and her weekly beauty shop appointment.
Margie requested no public services be held. The family will honor her at a private memorial service.
We will hold fast to the sweet memories of her life. Our sadness is made bearable by the assurance of spending eternity with her in heaven.
