SIDDLE, Margie
SIDDLE, Margie Bernice Margie passed away on Dec. 27, 2013, at home in Palmdale after a long illness. She was surrounded by family and will be in their hearts forever. Margie was born on Sept. 24, 1935 in Morley Missouri, the only child of Margie and Ralph Pratt. The family moved to California when Margie was young, along with an extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins. Margie lived in West Los Angeles early on but the family called the orchards of Littlerock home when Margie graduated from Antelope Valley High School and was the Miss Littlerock Community Queen in 1952. Margie met her husband Ron Siddle while he was in the Navy stationed in San Diego; a mutual friend brought them together and they were married on Oct. 22, 1955, celebrating their 58th anniversary last year. Margie had many interests during her life; she loved to travel and visited several countries with friends, including South America, Russia and China. She wrote poetry and liked to draw and paint. Margie served as the 2011-12 President of Alpha Omicron Master Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, an organization she enjoyed with numerous friends. Margie enjoyed working and started at an early age with a job at Don Hertel's pharmacy; she was in the accounting office at Palmdale General Hospital, sold real estate with Coldwell Banker and worked on the B-2 program at Northrop. Margie attended Central Christian Church and had countless caring, close friends there. Margie is survived by her husband Ron, son Steve and wife Pam of Arlington, Texas, granddaughter Caitlin and husband Patrick and was preceded in death by grandson Jonathan; son Ron and wife Gail, granddaughter Nicole, grandson Brett and wife Megan and great-grandson Grant. Services will be officiated by Dr. Rodney Allee at 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 3, 2014, at Chapel of the Valley Mortuary in Palmdale, with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers please send donations to Central Christian Church, 3131 West Ave. J, Lancaster, CA 93536. I plan to take a trip someday, to a place beyond the sun. I'll go quietly in the evening, when my work on earth is done. I'll step right out and take off, like a feather in the breeze Up I'll go without a care, above the highest trees. I'll travel light, all through the night, no baggage will there be. When I get to my heavenly home, God will provide for me. Margie
