Margie was born on November 14, 1925 in Rusk, Texas to Raymond & Audry McGraw Welch. Margie was a great friend to all. She was an avid quilter and crocheter. She was a member of the “Knit Wits”, a local group of quilters & knitters that make hats and blankets for cancer patients and the homeless, or anyone that could just use one. She was also a member of the Pt. Enterprise Goodwill Club. Being members of these clubs was very fitting for Margie, as she was a very charitable, giving person. Margie was also an avid reader, enjoyed gardening and working in her yard and also enjoyed bird watching, especially hummingbirds.
