Margery Hart Geary Pflug was born in Atlantic Highlands, NJ at home during a snow storm. At 18 she moved to New York City. She worked and studied as an accountant. She married Robert Pflug on July 31, 1953. She was fond of saying that she went to New York City to seek her fortune and found my father instead! In 1955 they moved to the DC area as my father got a civilian job working at the US Navy as an electrical engineer. After they moved to Virginia, they attended a Baptist church and heard the plan of salvation for the first time and were saved. My mother taught a neighborhood Bible study in the McLean area for over 30 years and always said that one of the best things she did in life, apart from her salvation in Christ, was getting married and having a family. She was a godly wife, mother and grandmother, family-oriented, and enjoyed people. We are sad that she is gone now but rejoicing that she is with our Lord and Savior!

No eulogy would be complete of Mom without mentioning some of her favorite Bible passages, many of which were read at her funeral.

She wrote a note in her Bible that Romans chapter 8 was her favorite chapter in the Bible. Romans 8:1-4 says, "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." Another favorite verse of hers was Romans 5:8--"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
