I remember Margie, although I didn't know her well. I was in the class of 71, a year behind her. I didn't even know she was ill. She came from a large family. She was liked by everyone. Her death hit me hard. She is buried in the same cemetery as my father. When we go by to see my dad's grave I always remember Margie and look for her grave, too. Margie was a sweet child. She died much, much too young.

Margie was my friend. She lived at the end of my street, Fawnlake..She was poisoned by walking on some grass barefoot. Some type of deadly chemical had been used on their grass. I remember being so sad. Margie had red hair and freckles...................Debbie Olive Williams

My sister did die on March 31, 1969. She did not die from walking barefoot in the the grass but from a blood disease called Aplastic Anemia. Thank you for your kind comments.

Wonderful, beautiful, so full of joy, I was shocked to hear of her passing, seemed so quick, she was so young and beautiful. Thought of her many times over the years.
