    Deepest sympathies for your family. I was so shocked, I worked with Margie at Ripon hospital, she was always smiling, and laughing. She will be missed.

    My sympathy to Margie’s family. She was a good hearted friendly soul. We were classmates in High School, and I will always have fond memories of her. May she rest in peace.
