We will really miss the way the room lit up when Margaret entered. It is a real honor to have met her and got to know her. May God bless!

I knew both Terry and Margie for many years. Margie was so talented and had such a uplifting spirit. Sorry for your loss.

Friends in middle school and then high school. Fun art classes together with Terry and Margie both. We didn’t keep in touch after graduation, but whenever we’d cross paths it was just like old times and so hard to part. I’ll miss those chance encounters and phone chats. And will certainly miss you and that huge smile. God bless you and your family.

I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Margie's passing. Margie was an amazing person with a huge heart. She was the Matron of honor in my wedding and I in hers. We were the best of friends when our babies were small and we saw each other through the best and worst of times. Margie truly had a heart of gold. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family as I know she will be greatly missed. Heaven has truly gained an angel. hugs Jerri

To the Family of Margaret Blankenship, I met Margie when she came to work as the office manager at Water District #6 during 2019. Margie was a very dedicated and honest person who spoke up and was willing to give her opinions on what she thought was the right thing to do and I appreciated the way she made those suggestions. As a member of the Board of Directors, I worked closely with Margie to develop information that was needed for the monthly board packets and in the development of some of our most recent policies. During that time, I had several opportunities to get to know Margie. I remember her telling me the story of how her husband Terry had applied for a job and had to go take a test. He didn’t think he had done very well, but in a short time he was notified, as one of the top four candidates, to come in for an interview and was hired by Phillips 66 in K.C., KS. Sometime later I saw my friend, who is the manager of the Phillips 66 operations in K.C.,KS. I asked him if he knew Terry Blankenship and he said that although Terry had passed away before he transferred to the K.C.,KS position his memorial was still posted at the shop. A couple of months ago, I told Margie about my conservation with my friend and that Terry must have been a really great person for them to still remember him. Well I can say that you can be proud of both of your parents as they were both great people. My prayers are with each of you and may you find comfort in the Lord. Sincerely, Harold Winnie

We never met in person, but we met on facebook. You were Gary Woodard's cousin and he told me all about you. My prayers are with your family. May God continue to hold you up at this time of loss. May God be with you.

I met Margie in 2001 when I went to work for Pleasant Valley Missouri. She was the Assistant City Clerk. It did not take long to get acquainted with her as she was very outgoing and was always available to answer any of my questions. We became friends instantly. We kept in touch for awhile after I retired in 2004. Several months ago, I discovered she was working for the Kearney Water District where I get my water from. We spoke several times about getting together with several other people from Pleasant Valley for lunch. I am sad to say that it never happened. She was a very good person and good hearted and I know she will be missed by a lot of people. My condolences to the family. I know that she is in heaven with Terry. Ralph Hawn, a former Board of Aldermen in Pleasant Valley sends his condolences also. He does not have a computer and because of his health is unable to attend the service. With Sincere Sympathy, Don & Marvalee Mansell

I remember my first time seeing Margie, she was just a little toddler then, I don't remember too much about the time, as her family was visiting us in Denver at the time, years later Marge and her family, including her mom and dad, and her brother Steve, stayed with us in Lamar, it was during this time I had time to get to know Margie, she was a wonderful kid then, when I lost contact with my mothers side of the family, which is how I am related to Margie, of course we all went on to live our lives, as most folks do, it sounds to me that Marge had a wonderful life, and that is really all we can ask for. One thing is for certain, it was no coincidence that Marge's family came to stay with us, Margie did have an influence on my life, as did her father and mother, and of course, her brother Steve! I don't believe there is any such thing in life as a coincidence, God is the one who is in control, I'm sorry I won't be able to attend the services in her celebration of life, my condolences go out to her family, and her brother and sister. The lights are green Margie, you may proceed!
