Margie G. Drake, died peacefully on May 10, 2016 after a two year struggle with dementia which lead to other complications, she was 86. Margie was born October 22nd, 1929 in Atlanta, GA., the daughter of Louise and Reese King. She is survived by her husband of 68 years, Roy Drake, sons Mark and Chris, daughters in law Shirlee and Audrey and grandson Austin Drake.
Margie was a person who would put everybody else above herself. She was constantly working on something, tinkering around, doing anything rather than being idle. Her patience was remarkable. The amount of care and detail that went into whatever she was doing was unmatched. She was the ultimate example of living in the now. She never wore a watch or looked at a clock. She was focused on the task at hand fully, usually the task was for someone else. Her love was shown through her skills. Her creativity, her natural ability for art, and her ability to keep stomachs full with her amazing cooking. She was not only loved by her family but everyone she touched along the way.
“I loved her so much and I realize she is no longer suffering and I am thankful for that. I am thankful for having Margie as my grandmother. I feel lucky to have had her in my life. She will always live in my heart.” Austin.
“She was the most creative and loving person I’ve ever known and was my inspiration for creativity and goodness. I will miss her dearly.” Chris.
Margie thoroughly enjoyed to sew, paint and working with wood. The art she created was unique and every piece was induced with love and it showed.
She is still very much alive and living in our hearts. Heaven is better off!
