As a young girl, Margie loved singing with her father, T Canada, at many churches throughout the countryside. She later moved to Michigan to work at Ford Motor Company before retiring in 1994. Margie was a kind and generous person who loved spending time with family and friends. Visitors never left her home hungry because her love was shown to so many through her amazing cooking. From perfect biscuits to fried chicken, you could often find Margie in the kitchen. Her green thumb and enthusiasm for flowers was evident in her garden. Many quilts made by Margie will continue to provide warmth and fond memories to loved ones. She loved to play Agggravation and could sweep the floor with anyone who challenged her to a game of rummy. Margie’s smile and southern charm will be missed dearly by everyone who knew her.
Due to the restrictions on the funeral home during the Covid-19 outbreak, all services will be private. Please keep the Walker family in your prayers.
