She was 97 years old.  Margie grew up on a farm in Berrien Springs, MI and loved gardening and flowers her entire life.  Margie went to Western Michigan College of Education obtaining a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education in 1948.  While at college, Margie met the love of her life Richard Dunn, they married in 1950 and moved to Birmingham, MI.  She started her teaching career at the elementary school in Berrien Springs, MI from 1948-1950, she then taught at Parkland Elementary school in Clawson, MI from 1950-1953.  Margie took 13 years off from teaching to raise her four children.  In 1967, she was hired by the Troy School District where she taught elementary education and retired in 1991 as a Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant.
