We called her Aunt Marge because she and my mother, Margaret Mitchell, were like sisters. They were both educators, very active members of St. Paul United Methodist church, and lived three houses apart. They were in a bowling group,shopped together,talked just about every day,and were just good friends.
She was the Godmother to my first born, Michele Johnson Parker.
Aunt marge was a very loving, outgoing, christain woman. She will be missed by my family.
