Margaret W. ("Marcy") Garkie, 92, died Saturday, October 30, 2010, in Huntington Beach, Calif., after a brief illness. Born Margaret Alice Walter on September 7, 1918, in Wilkes Barre, Marcy was a daughter of Roy and Marion Walter, of Kingston, and the beloved wife of the late James Berlin Garkie (her Jim!), and the cherished matriarch of a family blessed by her joy, her toe-tapping love of music, and her generosity of time and treasure, smiles and spirit. She is survived by her daughters, Susan Spies and Marion Garkie; her grandchildren, Kelsey Spies Evans and Brad Spies; her great-grandchildren, August and Avery Evans; her sister-in-law, Elizabeth Walter, Kingston; and by dear friends near and far. Having showed us all so wisely and so well what real love and friendship is all about, Marcy's final resting place will be forever in our hearts. The family will hold a private memorial. In lieu of flowers, a contribution may be made in her memory to the John Tracy Clinic, 806 W. Adams Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90007.

Susan and Marion I was very saddened to see your mom had passed away. When we moved to Calif in 1953 you were the first friends I met. Living down the street from Marcie in Palm Desert she was always keeping an eye on me and making sure things were ok. Kris and I moved here to Albuquerque in 2004. She kept telling me life was all about attitude and she had the wisdom. May God bless during these times.
