Margie was employed at several various businesses throughout her working career including Bob's Motor as a clerk and receptionist, as assistant bookkeeper at Seaway Volkswagen, Secretary at Twin Rivers School within Massena Central School System and retired from the Town of Massena as the Receiver of Taxes and Assessments in 1995.

Throughout the years Margie was active as a Den Mother with the Cub Scouts in Pack 31. She loved weekly campouts, initially in a VW bus camper, then truck camper and then various motor homes, as there were active the local Eskimo Travel Camper Club.

She with her husband John traveled the USA in their 38ft. motor home before eventually settling down in Bradenton, Florida. In Bradenton, John and Margie enjoyed the years in their new home located along the Bradenton River. Margie could not relax so she re-entered the working world as a secretary to a law firm. Eventually, after 10 years of Florida life they returned to Massena to enjoy the four seasons.

Once back in Massena, she enjoyed going out for a meal with old friends from her Mohawk elementary school; she participated in the monthly lunches with the retired Secretaries of Massena School System. Her daily walks with her neighbors and friends provided good conversations when she was not enjoying the wonders of reading a good mystery. Relaxation was growing flowers and caring for a good size veggie garden provided much relaxation.

Loved her "Grand Dog's" and reading books. She loved traveling, visiting many states in her RV travels.

Memorial donations are requested to Massena Humane Society.

Donaldson Funeral Home will be providing the service of the family with a private burial at her family plot within Calvary Cemetery.
