    I worked for years as a faculty member of N Ky Technical College. As a member of our office staff, Margie always had a smile and was willing to help in any way. She was a great colleague. Please accept my prayers for your loss.

    I am so sorry to learn about the passing of Margie. I worked with her for several years back in the 80’s. I had spoke with her recently while she was in rehab. She was a wonderful co-worker and friend. Prayers for her family for comfort and peace.

    I am so sad by the death of Margie. We go way back to high school and we worked together at the Northern Ky Vocational School. Margie was always so happy and cheerful and was a heck of a worker. May you find peace in this time of sorrow. Vickie Hill (nee Caldwell)

    Margie’s warm smile, laughter, and humor will be greatly missed. Earl will miss greeting her with “Honey, I’m home”. We have shared many, many enjoyable times with Margie, her brothers, and extended family. Although sorry for her passing, we are glad her suffering and pain is over. Love to the Raines family.
