Margie G. Moore

Memorial Service: 1:00 p.m., Friday, January 19, 2024

Location: Denbigh United Presbyterian Church

Reception: Following the Service

Margie G. Moore, 94, passed away peacefully at home on January 8, 2024. Margie was born in Cooleemee, NC, to Lila and Avery Gibbons. Her family moved to Virginia when she was a teenager, and she graduated from Newport News High School in 1948. She worked for Casey Chevrolet and Hutchens Chevrolet until her retirement in 1985, after the infamous swing set accident.

Margie was preceded in death by her husband, George L. Moore, affectionately known as “Beaver”; her partner, William Holloman; her two sisters, Evelyn Rabb and Sue Bridges; her brother, Palmer Gibbons as well as her faithful companion, sweet Marley girl. After crossing the rainbow bridge, Margie would speak to Marley every day.

She is survived by her sons, Steven Moore (Sheila Stevens) and William Holloman Jr. (B.J.); daughter, Cindy Holmes (Will); granddaughters, Jessica Tutone (Jason), Sheri Barton (Wade); grandsons, Stuart Moore (Stephanie), Tom McColskey (Jessica) and Joe McColskey (Amanda); great-granddaughter, Kamryn Moore; great-grandsons, Jaxon Moore and Chad Moore; niece, Sylvia Eutsler; great-nephews, Scott Eutsler (Michelle) and Chris Eutsler (Courtney) and many other grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Margie was lovingly known to her grandchildren to always have Certs, Starburst and Werther’s caramels in the cabinet, and always had a hot bowl of vegetable soup or carrots with raisins to offer. Every time her great-grandchildren would visit, she always made sure to have a bag of marshmallows to share with them. Margie was also partial to her great-grand-dog Winston and loved to visit and a snuggle with him.

Margie travelled the United States for many years with her partner Bill, who was the ringleader of the Shriner’s Circus.

Margie was a lover of food, mostly Nick’s Seafood Pavilion, where she loved the fried prawns, Pierce’s Barbeque, Texas Roadhouse’s filet mignon (which she always saved some for Marley), Hot Dog King, Port Arthur’s chicken chow mein, and Bubba’s Shrimp Shack. She loved her salads, extra on the radishes and purple onions. She also loved Cheerwine. Though, surprisingly, somewhat of a picky eater, Margie loved her granddaughter Jessica’s cooking and always devoured everything she made. Her most recent favorite was a pecan braid, but most notably, her peanut butter fudge.

Margie was steadfast in her opinions and never lacked for one. It definitely kept life interesting.

Margie was a lover of all flowers and had quite the collection of beautiful flowers in her home year-round. The night before her passing, her peace lily bloomed, as if to say, she was ready to go home.

Margie was a lifelong member of Denbigh United Presbyterian Church.

A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, January 19, 2024 at Denbigh United Presbyterian Church with a small reception following at the church.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Riverside Foundation (riversideonline.com/foundation) or Denbigh United Presbyterian Church.
