MARGARET C. "MARGIE" VERCH Wednesday, July 30, 1947 - Saturday, March 25, 2017
Margaret “Margie” Cheryl Verch, age 69, Billings, MO, went to be with her Lord and Savior Saturday, March 25, 2017, with her family by her side. She was born July 30, 1947, in Charleroi, PA. Many years later she met the love of her life, Richard “Rick” Verch. They were united in marriage June 19, 1965.
Margie was a devoted wife, mother, grandma (Nanny), aunt, and friend. She lived a life based on faith and family, both of which were underscored with unconditional love. All who knew her admired her servant’s heart. She was a faithful prayer warrior for others, a loyal friend, a source of encouragement, a role model for many, and just an all-around special lady. Margie’s faith never wavered. Her strength and hope came from her Savior and she rested every day in His promises. Singing His promises was always something she enjoyed and her high-soprano voice sounded like an angel.
Another God-given gift was her deep love of teaching and caring for children in her in-home daycare that she owned and operated for 47 years. Countless lives and families were blessed by the impact she made on each of them. Margie loved every single person in her life with all of her being and she had a special way of continuously reminding them.
Margie was preceded in death by her parents.
She is survived by her husband of 51 years, Rick, and her four sons that were her treasured blessings, Johnny (Alicia), Rob (Julie), Gary (Natalie), and Ryan (Chrissie). The sparkles in her eyes were her 11 grandchildren, Paula, Jennifer, Jessica, Cody, Ellie, Kinsey, Madie, Hanna, Brayden, Chase, and Evan; her seven great-grandchildren, Cody, Justin, Christopher, Keely, Joseph, Allison, and Samantha; a sister Darla(Rick) Quinn; and a multitude of extended family, friends, and daycare children. Margie will forever be missed, but forgotten by none.
