Margaret "Margie" Stephens Womack of Grayson, died peacefully in God's arms June 18, 2017, in St. Mary's Hospital in Huntington W.Va.
Margie was born Feb. 24, 1919, to the late Emma and George Stephens of Hitchins. She was also preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, John Gaines Womack; her son, John Gaines Womack II; and grandson, Hunter Frazee Womack; brothers, Kenneth and Lester Stephens; and sisters, Virginia (Lovie) Clark, Juanita Rucker and Dempsey Prichard.
Margie graduated from Hitchins High School and attended the University of Kentucky. Although not a Kentucky graduate, she and her husband John were avid and loyal Kentucky supporters attending not only events in Lexington but also following their teams throughout the country. Margie worked alongside John on the family farm for more than 40 years.
Margie was a longtime member of the Bagby Memorial Methodist Church in Grayson. She served the church as a Sunday School teacher and was very active assisting with office duties and church events enhancing the beauty of the church with flowers and decorations. She could be found every Sunday morning faithfully filling her pew for the morning service.
Margie was a member of the original Grayson Garden Club and also a Cub Scout Den mother. She loved working puzzles and enjoyed arts and crafts, piecing together many quilts by hand and excelling at counted cross stitch designs. She loved the many animals and pets that graced the farm and enjoyed feeding and watching the birds and deer that came to the small orchard to visit. When weather permitted she could usually be found on the patio enjoying the beautiful hills and green grasses of the farm.
She is survived by her sister, Joyce Bradley of Lexington; her daughter, Karen Leslia Womack of Oxford, Ohio; her daughter-in-law, Amanda Hart Womack of Grayson; her grandson, John Gaines Womack III of Lexington; and nine nieces and nephews and numerous cousins.
Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, June 22, 2017, at Bagby Memorial Methodist Church in Grayson.
Friends may call from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 21, 2017, at Malone Funeral Home in Grayson and after 10 a.m. Thursday at the church.
In lieu of flowers, gifts may be sent to the Bagby Methodist Church.
