Margaret was a small slender woman. She had a heart of gold. At the age of 7 she and her siblings were left to be raised by different families. Margie was taken in by Mr. and Mrs. Barron of Petersburg. The Barrons were friends of her mother Dorothy. Margie ended up marrying a son of the Barrons, Barney. Barney died a few years later, it is said he drank himself to death. After the death of Barney she then married Ernest Bishop. Margie never worked she was a stay at home mother. Her whole life she looked for her siblings. In or around 1986 she located her brother Earl. I remember this to be the happiest day of her life. No matter what happened in her up bringing or why she was left behind she always loved her mother and father. Margaret was diagnosed with Alzhiemers disease of which she lived with for 16 years. Her husband Ernest visited her every day her last 10 years as she was in the Walnut Hill nursing home. She loved to sing and dance that is what she did all the time at the Nursing home she even made the paper for doing the "funky chicken"
