Margie Marie Wooley was born on October 12, 1929, in Wilburton, Oklahoma to the union of James Utah Gray and Eardie Campbell Gray. Margie made her transition on Thursday, June 24, 2021.
Margie was united in matrimony to Herman Carl Wooley on August 12, 1947. They were blessed with two beautiful children. After sixty years of marriage, the Lord called Herman to his reward. Margie was a very devoted wife and mother, and maintained a very pristine home. She also worked as a teacher's aide for the Hammond Public School system for many years.
As a young girl in Oklahoma, Margie accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and Lord. When she and Herman relocated to Indiana, she united with Galilee Baptist Church in Gary, IN. She later became a member of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Hammond, where she continued to serve until her health prevented her from doing so.
