  • To Fred, Josh, James and your extended family, my sincere sympathy in the passing of Margie. I knew Margie as a co-worker beginning at DuPont Textile Fibers department. She was always a kind, soft-spoken and intelligent woman, always eager to assist in her professional role and beyond. Long after PRL was gone, she still continued to be my “go-to” person I always called for assistance in areas of procurement – if she did not know the answer she directed me to the person who could help. Rest In Peace, Margie.

  • I was very sadden to read that Margie passed away so suddenly. I have worked with Margie at DuPont and was so happy when she decided to do what she always wanted to do, retire. It was such a great retirement party for someone who didn’t want one. She just wanted to leave here quietly. Today, I am so grateful that we did go forth with the party, because she was so deserving of that party. She always worked hard and got the job done. Family, I lost my Mother this year, and know what you guys are going through. Just hold on to each other and remember the good times, most of all remember her smile. I will continue to lift the family up in prayer.

Margie and I worked together for many years in the Sourcing organization in DuPont and she was always an inspiration to those who worked with her. She will be missed by all. Prayers to the family.
