My name is Angie (Christy) Gold. I am one of Virginia's daughters (Jack's sister). I am so sorry for your loss. Mom respected Margie very much and how she cared for Jack, particularly in those last years when he had dementia. Mom still talks about the last time she got to see Margie and Jack. Mom has happy memories of this trip.

I’m so glad I got to know her these past couple of years through my mom, Bernice Downs Wright. She would call and check up on my mom and I enjoyed taking mom to visit her and I even visited her sometimes by myself. I know she will be dearly missed. Sending prayers and love to her family.
