Our dear friend and neighbor, Margie L. Friend Strawser, died suddenly on Saturday, October 11th. She was a devoted and faithful companion to her husband, Bill; a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a tireless worker for her community. She came from a big family of 10 children and maybe that is where she learned to be so patient, considerate, kind and caring.
Margie had a wonderful knack of knowing exactly what to say to make each person she met feel that they were special - each person - from her family, friends and neighbors to the clerk at Foodland where she and Bill shopped for groceries.
Margie has been laid to rest in the Mt. Olivet Cemetery and is now at peace, but Pastor Bill probably said it best, "... a gaping hole has been left in the fabric of the community."
Please keep Margie's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
