Greetings everyone … The staff at Reminisce is terribly saddened by the passing of World War 2 poster girl Margie Stewart, featured in our April/May 2012 issue, and we’re sharing this message from Margie’s daughter-in-law, Fran:
“It is with the heaviest heart that I am writing to let you know that Mom suddenly passed away April 26. It is ironic that she was enjoying such a lovely burst of energy due to your decision to make her a cover girl again at the age of 92! Our entire family agrees that the magazine article turned out to be a most fitting tribute to her and so wonderful that she was able to see it herself. We can’t thank you enough for all you and Ken Wysocky did to make this happen for her. I’d appreciate it if you would direct people to send their sympathies to: email@example.com. Several people have asked what they can do for her and honestly, the thing she would love the most are donations sent to the USO in her name. The entire staff of Reminisce who worked so hard to create this beautiful presentation are forever in our debt.
With sincere gratitude,
Fran and Steve Johnson and family”
