She was born Dec. 29, 1934, in Hannibal, Mo.
She made friends easily, loved them fiercely and gave generously of her heart when so moved.
A strong-willed and sometimes stubborn woman, she butted heads with friends and family as often as she expressed her love. She was a stern mother and a resolute spouse, later becoming a struggling single mother of two children. Margie battled cancer once in her life and won. She had hoped to succeed this second time, but sadly complications arose following surgery.
Margie slipped away late Sunday night, May 5, 2013, at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Ill.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Mary Andrews and Harry Layton; her sister, Shirley Misner; and her ex-husband, Norman Sapp.
Margie is survived by a brother, Hayes; several nieces and nephews; and her two children, Deana Sapp and Bruce Diamond.
