Marion- Margaret Dorgan, 84, of Marion, passed away at 6:00 AM, Thursday, December 28, 2006 at her home in Marion.
Margaret, Maggie as she was called, enjoyed conversation, singing, laughing, coffee & music.
She enjoyed dressing up, wearing jewelry, wearing make-up and getting her hair fixed. She lived in her own home for the last ten years. Prior to that, she resided in Energy for a number of years. She loved to shop, eat out, go to the beauty shop, picnic, rock in her chair, cook, sing gospel music and attend church.
She listened and sang with her friends and peers. She loved to talk and never met a stranger. She would give you a name and she would call you by that name for as long as she knew you. She often asked for coffee (which she liked very warm). One of her favorite pastimes was folding laundry. She was a gentle, kind and outspoken lady. She was always in the mood to talk and she would often repeat what she heard (sometimes, this wasnt a good thing). She was very straight forward, telling exactly how she felt.
Margaret is loved and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
