Marjorie May MOSER Stewart
Margie May MOSER Stewart passed away on April 11, 2009 in Allen, Texas after a short illness.
Just a month or so before she died, Margie supplied us with several pictures from 1956-1959 and a couple of current pictures of she and husband Ric. They can be viewed at our website www.NorthwoodHighSchoo-1959.com.
She and Ric were planning to attend the reunion in October.
Margie lived in Allen, a suburb of Dallas TX, with her husband Ric. She had 4 children: Ken, Lori, Tom, and Jodi, and seven grandchildren. She loved singing and both she and Ric were members of the Prestonwood Church choir. Prestonwood is one of the mega churches and is in Plano, TX. The choir has more than 500 members, the church is huge.
After graduation, she lived in Guam 1961-62, Hawaii 1962-63, Texas 1963-64, Silver Spring 1965-67, Wyoming 1967-68, West Virginia 1968-1981, and Texas from 1981.
Her first job was at Roth's Theater on Georgia Avenue when she was 16. A funny story told by Margie related to when she worked at Roth's. It was decided to promote some film. She was dressed as a baby, put in a baby carriage, and trundled up and down Georgia Ave. advertising the film. After NHS she worked at the Applied Physics Lab then went to Guam. She retired from SBC Global (now AT&T) in April 07.
At NHS she was always on the honor roll and was a member of the National Honor Society. She sent here scores to Mensa, on a lark, and was accepted as a member. She was one of the original cheer leaders. Her mother sewed the first uniforms for the whole squad, when Mr. Bartlett could not come up with funds in 1957. She wanted to be in the NHS chorus, but was bumped in 1958 and assigned to the Red & Black as business manager. She was in Quill & Scroll, a journalism honor society, and was one of the four student speakers at our graduation. She was on the Decorator's Comm. 58; Social Comm. 59: Graduation Comm. 59; Mock Football 59 and Pow Wow 57. I am sure I am missing other activities she participated in at NHS. She entered the Miss Silver Spring contest in 1959 and came in 3rd or 4th I think.
I have attached a copy of the cover of the funeral program.
