    Margie was my aunt, on my father’s side of the Ward family (Neil). Although our contact was little in later years, we enjoyed her company and cared for her. Her always-bright smile, and “semi-secret taco recipe”, drew the nieces and nephews in. In difficult times, Margie was a source of strength and support to my mother, very much appreciated. During Neil’s last illness, she and Phil were beside him, the closest of family members. Thank you.
    I shall miss you, Margie Smith Ward. God bless. Love, Anne Ward

    She will be missed by all who new her from the Bingo at the VFW hall in Lovell. She always made the most delicious pies and desserts. Her pie crust could not be beat. May she rest peacefully in God’s hands.

    God took you in his arms, because he knew you needed rest, his garden must be beautiful, because he only takes the best
