Condolences

I am so sorry about Margorie, I taught with her at Cornerstone and she was a sweet girl. Not many could handle the children she taught but she just knew how to do it. There are times I struggled and she was always there for me. The world and I will miss her.

Margie was kind and sweet and funny and loving and quirky and so many other wonderful things… She had a great sense of humor and a honest, loving heart. I’m so glad to have known her. I’m sorry for your loss, Coach. Love and Hugs, Mindi

Mike, I was shocked to see Marjorie's passing in the Chronicle. In her years, at South Amherst, I was blessed with her being a coworker and friend. Those were the days! You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

Mike,
Sorry to hear of your wife’s passing. Hope that the arrangements go well and you can get through with only pleasant thoughts and great memories. Thinking about you both, and will send prayers your way.

So sorry for the passing of your dear wife Mike.. we have moved out of Woo-town but will always cherish the happy years there Condolences to the entire family. Heaven just received a beautiful lady. May GODS love comfort each of you till again all will unite . Prayers for comforting peace

Our condolences to Mike and the rest of the Taylor family. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

My heart goes out to all the Taylor family. I just learned of Margie’s passing. So many fond memories of growing up with the Taylor kids. She was a special person and will be missed by many. Take comfort in knowing she’s in a better place.

Michael, there are no words to tell you just how much you and Margie's friendship always meant to me. You both were so very kind and thoughtful to us as neighbors in Sheffield Lake. Just last month I came across the journal that Margie kept in my kitchen. She maintained this so that when she checked in on my 20 year old blind and crippled doggy (Baby) several times each day when I worked out of town (day and night), she could keep me updated on her condition. She'd stand her up, take her out to the grass and make sure she ate. Margie Gallagher certainly is at the right hand of our Father. I know she will rest in the Eternal Peace due to the Angel she is. May our Lord be with you in your time of grief Michael. I know how very much you love our lady.

Dear Family,

We have been thinking about special moments with Margie: listening to her play the flute at East Branch Dam during family reunions, the cousin trip to the Bahamas, and being introduced to her beloved pets. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers and know that God will give you peace and comfort.

with love,
Robin and John

We are sad by this news. I think of all the laughter I experienced with her! I will miss her. Love to her family!

I am beyond sad. I know she is at rest and at peace. However, my memories of Margie are some of the very best of my entire life. I love all of my memories of times with her family as well. I hope your memories of her will be a comfort to you all. I loved her like a sister (even better) Please take comfort in my prayers and my love.

All My Love -

Missy

I remember Margie well although it's been many many years. We had some great times playing flute together in high school band and orchestra. She was a sweetheart and played beautifully. My sincere condolences.

I'm so so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Marjorie as a lovely teen and a kind person when I was a child and from the fabulous Ernie and Rachel Taylor family- that family was a bundle of fun - really close friends with my mom and dad...pretty much forever...Marjorie was too young to lose. I'm so so sorry for your loss.
