    Dear Ron and Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. Margie was a truly joyful person. I loved following her posts in FB, the pictures of the glass items she made. Margie was always so positive, so cheerful. Losing her is so very difficult. My prayers and sympathies with all her friends and family.

    Margie and I were at Mercy High together and she was one of my closest friends there. We had great times attending Creighton Prep basketball games and making polish sausage with her family. I will always remember her wonderful smile and cheery disposition. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May our dear Lord comfort you here as Margie is enjoying Heaven.

    Margie was a wonderful person and friend. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. My prayers and condolences go out to her family. I met Margie through lampworking and she was a great teacher. She share her love of glass with me and we had just cancelled our trip to Italy a couple weeks ago. She touched many people’s live and her work with Beads of Courage was admirable.

    I had Mrs. Shanahan as a creative writing teacher in H.s. Her encouragement and belief in me as a student has stuck with me all my life. She was a great teacher and made a difference in many generations. One of a kind. My condolences to her family and friends.
