Margie adored her grandchildren – they were her whole world. She loved shopping with her daughter and watching HGTV, where she always found inspiration for redecorating her home. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Alfred and Ruth Davis; maternal grandparents, Jim and Effie Wright; sister and brother-in-law, Patricia and Bert Stahl.
Margie is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, Mickey Rose, and their children, Jonathan Rose (Stacy) and Mitzi Humphreys (Corey). She also leaves behind her four beloved grandchildren: Walker and Parker Humphreys, and Mason and Hunter Rose.
The family first began in the funeral business in 1933. The Hamil's legacy, beginning with the Elliott's to John and Jo Ann Hamil and now continuing with Robert and Karla Hamil, is to serve families in their time of need.
