It was my honor and privilege and a blessing to be a student of Sister Margie, and then a co-worker, at St Rose in Belmar. If Sister Margie knew you, she liked you, and after every conversation, class, and encounter, you walked away certain you were loved by her and by the Lord. God rest your beautiful soul, Sister! xo
