She then attended business school in Huron. On August 6, 1963 at Zion Lutheran Church in Scotland, Margie was united in marriage to Francis Serr.

Throughout their life together, Margie and Francis loved travelling together.  She enjoyed walking and listening to country music.

Dear Mr. Serr, So sorry to hear of your wife's death. Thinking of you. I just happened to be on the funeral home site because Craig's classmate, Michael Brown died. Hope you are well. You were a very good teacher and debate coach. Parkston was fortunate to have both of you in the community. Peace to you, Mary Jo

I am sorry to learn of your family sorrow. The passing of a loved one is painful. So I'd like to share scripture that may bring comfort. Phil. 2:1 lets us know...if, then, there is any encouragement in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any sharing of spirit, if any tender affection and compassion, make my joy full in that you are of the same mind and have the same love, being joined together in soul, holding the one thought in mind... Rom. 15:4 also lets us know...For all things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction, that through our endurance and through our comfort from the scriptures we have hope. 1Cor. 15:42 informs us...So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is sown in dishonor, it is raised up in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised up in power. Isa. 55:11 Jehovah promises...So my word that goes forth from my mouth will prove to be. It will not return to me without result. But it will certainly do that in which I have delighted and it will have certain success in that in which I have sent it. I sincerely want these scriptures to bring hope and help your family endure.
