Margery had many gifts and interests that she was able to share and pass down to her family. She was an avid reader, artist, knitter and pianist. She also loved her floral gardens and her animals. Her giving heart led her to many volunteer positions over the years, even allowing her to use her knitting skills for babies in need. She also was very devoted to her church in Michigan, Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Petoskey, MI.
