Margie was born in Rison, Arkansas on August 26, 1943. Margie graduated from Lamar State College Beaumont and married Harold Orr Edgington, Jr. The couple made their home in the Orange area, where they raised their four children. Harold was a preacher which meant Margie had the great responsibly of ministering as well. Margie was a kind and giving person, who was always ready to help others in need. She enjoyed gardening, sewing and fishing with her husband and family. Margie and Harold are probably fishing together in heaven. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
