  3. Miss Margie
    I will forever love ❤️ you !
    I’m grateful to have known you honored to have you in a part of my life it will for treasure

  4. Miss Margie we love you so much! You are the reason I love dance and then I had the privilege of bringing my daughter to dance for you as well. I always looked forward to spending those hours talking to you at the desk about everything and anything. You always had a great story to share. Thank you for always being there for Sophia. I will always be grateful for your kind words and the love you showed us. A beautiful woman both inside and out with the best smile. You will be missed.
    Love always, Michelle and Sophia

  5. She was all mine! 😔 we grew up together from kindergarten through high school. She was my north star, my refuge, my leading lady! Every memory of my early life included her! It was me that she started dance lessons with; my sister who led her to Bob, her beloved. Saying she was special could never add up to the joy and peace and truth she gave to everyone God placed in her path. Every person she met she loved with an irreplaceable devotion emanating from her most tender heart. My Margie! My love! My chuldhood and adolesence and adulthood!! You are mine forever! Xoxoxooxox

  6. Marchands school of dance was my childhood escape no matter what was going on. Everyone knows a child who knew whether they were happily hopping up the tennis bubble steps or wiping away tears when they got to the top they were going to be greeted by miss Margie that big smile and her teddy bears. To say her passing is unimaginable is a understatement. For generations including my own girls miss Margie and Marchands have been a safe happy place for thousands of dancers. Sending prayers and strength to Sommer and her family.

  7. candleI will miss you, I am beyond sad to hear this. You were a true inspiration. Thank you for making me always feel beautiful. I hope you’re dancing in heaven

  29. Dear Miss Margie,
    Your dance classes brought me so much joy as a child and left me with many happy memories. Over 30 years later, I still smile whenever I hear a song we used to dance to in class. I always wished I could have danced at the studio longer but am grateful for the time I was there and the kindness and warmth you provided to me. You have touched so many lives including mine and just like my 1991 recital song, I will “miss you much.”

  30. Margie was a truly lovely person with a genuine smile that warmed your heart. She is loved by so many because she radiated love. God bless her and her family.
    With love and prayers,
    Cheryl Metrick
