Margie M. Duley, of rural Lawson, died Saturday, February 4, 2023, at Excelsior Springs Hospital, Excelsior Springs, Mo., surrounded by family and friends. She was 93.
Margie was born May 31, 1929, to J. Homer and Angie (Johnson) Evans in rural Stanberry, Mo., where she grew up.
On October 19, 1947, she married Roy Duley at Island City Christian Church. They were married 63 years.
Margie was a homemaker, loving her family and farm life. Always busy, she grew vegetables, and flowers, made many quilts and comforters, and loved visiting with family and friends. She followed Christ at the age of 11, never lost sight of that calling and was a real prayer warrior.
She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; her brothers, G. Vernon, Russell and R. Kenneth Evans; her sister, Lorene Evans; her son-in-law, Dick Pettiecord; and one grandson, Aaron Duley.
Survivors include her sons, David (Roberta) Duley of Lawson; Rick (Stephanie) Duley of Lee’s Summit, Mo.; Bill (Sherry) Duley of Rolla, Mo.; daughter, Linda Pettiecord of Thorn Hill, Tenn.; sister-in-law, Bonnie (Herman) Harville of Robertsdale, Al.; 14 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
Visitation will be Saturday, February 11, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Elmira Baptist Church, rural Lawson, with funeral services at 11:00 a.m. Interment will immediately follow services at Elmira Cemetery.
Thanks to the Lawson Manor, including great granddaughter, Kara Seeley, for their care during the last few months of her life. Special thanks to the One Community Hospice team, especially Cody, Chloe and, Nikki, whom she loved.
While she loved flowers, she loved Jesus more, so in lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Elmira Baptist Church where Margie was a long-time member.
Arrangements in care of Bross & Spidle Funeral Home, Lawson Chapel, Lawson, MO.
