  1. Mrs. Thielen was a wonderful woman with a beautiful soul that will sorely be missed by all. Margery was a strong woman who was a great example to others. Her laughter and warm enduring hugs were the one thing I always looked forward to and I will miss her deeply. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and I hope they know how much they are loved as well. Heaven Got Another Angel!!

  2. We are both so sorry for your loss. As you probably recall, we first met at the clinic while Margie and I got our chemo. It was good to have you both to visit and compare notes with. Margie was well loved in our Pink Alliance group, and we will miss her. Our condolences to you and your family.

  4. Ray, I was so very sorry to hear about Margie! Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. Love you. Bob and Kay

  5. I graduated with Margie from Port Gibson High School, Port Gibson, MS in May, 1964. She was not only beautiful on the outside but had the most beautiful heart and sweetest spirit. She often invited me to spend the night with her following our basketball games as I lived 15 miles away out at a tiny community on Highway 18 called Carlisle. Our class held its 50th reunion in April, 2014, in Port Gibson, and we were so blessed that she was able to be there, and we all got to meet her husband. She is the first girl to pass away in our class, but we have such sweet memories to hold on to until we meet again. My deepest sympathy is extended her family.

  7. My condolences to the family. I meet Margery thru pink alliance, I wish I had known her before Breast Cancer. She had the most beautiful smile and kind heart.

  8. Dear Ray, Reade and Dane,
    I am so sad to lose my dear dear sister, so I can not imagine the emptiness you feel. Margie was such a wonderful friend and one of the strongest people I have ever known.

  10. Ray, Reade, and Dane
    Margie was a true and precious sister, mentor, friend. Her presence and her loving heart will forever be with me and her sisters. Margie taught us to never give up and to continue to fight the fight against incredible odds.
    Thank you Margie for sharing your light with us.
