Margie was born in Ashtabula to Glenn and Lucy Tuttle (Crow). She was a graduate of AHS (1976). That same year she married the love of her life, Stan Williams. Stan was a shift worker, and Margies love would have her waiting at midnight to go for long walks in the stillness of night, especially if there were a gentle rain. No matter the weather, their neighbors would see them strolling, holding hands all the while.
She started her working career at General Aluminum in Conneaut in the payroll dept. Soon Margie and Stan bought a small farm in Sheffield Twp where they raised two children, Scott and Kathy. Together they raised all sorts of animals, and Margies garden was her pride and joy. She lived a holistic lifestyle, even grinding her own flour. Each fall would find her standing alongside her mother canning and freezing the bounty she had raised. She used to say that the only thing they bought was toilet paper!
Margie became an excellent cook, and spent many contented hours baking in her kitchen. One of her favorite sayings was that A recipe is just a guide line to spark your creativity.
An outdoors woman, Margie spent many hours afield with her children and her Lab Mindy, waterfowl hunting. She also was a trap and skeet shooter, and competed in black powder and action pistol shoots. She loved Lake Erie, stocking her freezer with perch each year.
An accomplished motorcyclist, she and Stan rode their Harleys around the country twice, her favorite ride being Rt 66. Together, they rode in all states but Alaska. She also loved bicycling, and had taken several multi-state trips on rail-trails.
As her children grew, Margie returned to work. A Branch Manager for Key Bank, her outgoing personality and caring attitude soon earned her the love and respect of customers and co-workers alike. Margie battled ovarian cancer since 1999, and the love and prayers of her many friends buoyed her up in stormy waters.
In her later years she became a quilter. She so loved being a grandmother,and Gramma Margies legacy will live on in the quilts that she made for each member of her family. Special thanks to Ann Maurie of hospice for her assistance near the end.
Margie is survived by her husband of 41 years Stan, son Scott (Christin) and their two girls Charlotte and Vivienne Marjorie of New Jersey. Daughter Kathryn (Greg) Konzel and their children Alex, Nathan, and Sophia, of Geneva. Step daughter Pamela (Ken) Honegger and their daughter Alyssa of Tennessee, Brothers Dallas (Becky)and Frank of Ashtabula, sister Susan (Bill) Harding of Geneva, and sister Jackie of Hawaii. Also by many nieces and nephews, and her BFFs Leslie Perkoski and Leslie Link.
Margie was surrounded by her loved ones in life, and therefore asked that there be no services. Memorial contributions to Hospice of the Western Reserve for their kind and loving care.
