According to her family, Margie was a talker. She also was not afraid to offer advice and while not always solicited, it was usually pretty sound. Apparently, she could be a little stubborn, too. She was an excellent baker whose coffee cakes and cookies will be missed. They also indicated she could whip up some pretty tasty casseroles. Margie enjoyed the TV program "Game of Thrones," and a good glass of wine was a must. An avid card player, she favored marathon games of euchre, bridge and hand and foot with her family. For Margie, family was important. She treasured time with her siblings, children and loved doting on her grandchildren.. She is survived by her daughter Stacey Kidwell, Cincinnati; son Jack Kidwell, Austin, Texas; sister Carol Firsich, Greensburg; brothers Tony and Tom Johnson, Batesville; and grandchildren Harry, Epiphany, George and Maggie Kidwell. She was preceded in death by her parents.. Visitation will be held Wednesday, Oct. 14, from 10-11 a.m. at Weigel Funeral Home.
