Margie D. Diamond

To all the loved ones of Margie Diamond, we send our sincere condolences, at her passing. We had the distinct privilege of
Margie and Charles, for a tea, in their home. Such a gracious
hostess and an amazing historian, who shared some history
of families that we were trying to find and related topics.

Our Prayers are for Blessings to all who survive this grand lady.

AMEN

My sincere condolences for your loss. Margie was a very special lady and will be deeply missed. She was always very kind to me when she came to visit her sisters in El Paso and made me laugh by how she kept her sisters in line. Truly a special person.
