I n Loving M emory O f M rs. M argie Stringer Childs The time has come for me to get some rest. I have dealt with the pain and I did my very best I no longer hurt, nor do l feel sad. I'm finally with my Lord and Savior, I'm free at last. So instead o f looking sad, turn those frowns upside down. I have only left this Earth and now I'm Heaven bound. To be with the one I love so dear, so whenever you miss
me and feel and little fear, just close your eyes and with you I will be near.

On Monday, June 1, 2009, Mrs. Margie Stringer Childs slipped away to eternal rest and peace at her residence in Augusta, Georgia.
Margie was a native of Richmond County, Georgia. She was a quiet, gentle, kind and humble person who loved her family and friends.
Margie was a kind and loving person who would give her last to make sure you had. She was the piece of the puzzle that held her family together. She was well known in the neighborhood and treated everyone like family.
Margie Stringer Childs was born on November 25, 1940 in Augusta, Georgia to the late Mr. James Stringer and Mrs. Henrietta Stringer.
Margie was baptized at an early age at the Jerusalem Baptist Church, Augusta, Georgia.
Margie was united in Holy Wedlock to her soul mate, Jule Frank Childs on July 17, 1960 in New York City. To this union three children were born: Jacqueline, Tonia and the late Bernard.
She leaves to cherish her loving memories: a devoted and very caring husband, Jule Frank Childs; two daughters, Jacqueline C. Wilson and Tonia C. Williams; one stepson, Frank Childs, New Jersey; five grandchildren, Tara M. Childs, Chicago, IL, Brian B. Childs, Orlando, FL, Jennifer D. Wilson, Frank J. "Mann" Fleming and Wesley E. Wilson, Augusta, GA; two sons-in-law, Earl Wilson and devoted, caring Kenneth B. Williams; one daughter-in-law, Laverne M. Childs; granddaughter-in-law, Naomi Childs, Orlando, FL; three great grandchildren, Tia and Ciera Harvey and Barnard J. "B.J" Wilson; one sister, Mary L. Stringer; god children, Janee' A. Williams, Candice Gonder and Herman O'Bryant, Jr.; devoted friends, Barbara Jean Owens, Rose Coleman, Pinkie Bowdre and Lizzie Sapp; a host of cousins, other relatives and friends.
Saying goodbye is the hardest thing I've had to do. I won't get to see your smiling face or feel you warm embrace. I can still hear your voice while I'm cooking in the kitchen telling me, "that's too much" or " you can add, but you can't subtract." If only I could hear your sweet voice now. I will miss those long talks we had, I will miss those late night snacks too. I'll even miss the way you used to call me "heavy". You brought me much comfort in my hard times. You always knew what was best for me. No matter what I did, you never turned your back or loved me less. You were always there to carry me through. What will I do without you? You were the glue that held this family together. This house won't be the same without you. There is no one like you, no one can fill your shoes the way you did. You have been an inspiration in my life. I appreciate all the sacrifices you made for me and my children. You went beyond being a grandmother, you were like a mother to me. You taught me a lot of things, but one thing you taught me was to treat others with kindness and show respect even when they did you wrong. You've had a hard fight and I believe you've won. You did it all for us, you are the strongest woman I know. I've been able to see God in you and I know the Lord will take care of you, just like you took care of me. I Love You More! And this isn't good-bye, I'll see you later.
Love Always, Jennifer
We thank the Lord for you momma, and all we've shared. ' We are who we are today because you loved, you prayed and you cared.
Love, Your Daughters, Jacqueline & Tonia
