    We first met Margery 27 years ago when she first started dating my good friend ed. We remember her first time out on the colorado river with ed and us, floating down the river at night singing and howling at the stars. A special love started there and soon there was marriage. little eddie and johnele. We all enjoyed many happy times on the sand bars there. Margery, we thank you for bringing true love into my friends life and all of your family and friends!
    From all of your old san diego friends our deepest sympathys.

    I worked with Margery at Howell Care Center, I always loved to hear her outlook on things as they changed very rapidly most days there. I have many happy memories of our talks there. I would send a card just so she knew I was thinking of her and praying for her….what a surprise when I would get a card back…made my day!! I will miss the surprise cards. She was an amazing person and she loved her family very much! Hold the memories close to your hearts. I pray God holds you all close in the upcoming future as you adjust and meets your every need. Just watch for the little things that will remind you of her. Speak her name often and talk about the memories and keep her spirit alive in your lives. I am sorry that I can’t be at the service but you will all be in my thoughts and I will have a prayer time at the same time. God Bless you all.

    Dear Chapman Family-

    I am so sorry for the lost of your dear wife and mother. Margery was such a wonderful, caring, welcoming human being. Always gave us her best smiling self and kind words. I felt like her attention was just centered on me when I spoke to her and had a conversation. She never was one to look around and see who else was there to interact with. She gave you her all. Bless her and all of you and your loved ones to walk day by day through your lose of her presence in your life.
