Margie L Lee
80 Amazing Years
Margie L. Lee celebrated her 80th birthday on December 10, 2016, with a dinner at her favorite restaurant, Lone Star Steakhouse, surrounded by her family. She has four generations to her honor: children Sharon (Ross Jr.) Miley, Marilyn Diventi, Connie (Brian) Palmer; Grandchildren--Dawn (Nathan) Withers, Amber (Josh) Earleywine, Moriah and Lindsay Palmer; Great Grandchildren Cassie (Andy) Amador and Isaac Withers; Great-Great Granddaughter--Aliyah Amador. Margie s an Oklahoma girl with a pioneer spirit. She married her childhood sweetheart, Floyd, in 1952. They left their hometown in Sallisaw, got jobs in the bustling manufacturing hub of Rockford and raised their 4 girls. Margie and Floyd were married 60 full years until Floyd s passing in 2013--1 daughter, Judy Lynn Lee, also passed the same year. Margie has always had a strong work ethic beginning with her first job as a waitress at an Oklahoma truck stop when she was 13. After 58 years in the fast lane, she retired from the work force leaving Gunite Foundry in 2007 after 26 years of service. She has since led a simpler life devoted to her family, friends and church and still delights in travel. Happy 80th Birthday, mom, grandma, great-grandma and great-great grandma. The Best is yet to come.
