Margie Ellen (Hott) Ruckman, 75, of Romney passed away, unexpectedly, Wednesday evening, May 9th, joining the Lord and her husband, Stanley.

Margie spent her life surrounded by her eleven grandchildren and twenty- one great grandchildren.
Margie was a lifelong resident of Hampshire Co. and had never met a stranger. She spent 50+ years tirelessly working as she raised her family and kept tabs on all the happenings in town. She shared in the joys of marriages and births and the sorrows of death; touching almost everyone in the community in some way. Whether you were blessed by her chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cake or her mischievous sense of humor as she chatted over her work counter, you knew Margie was one of a kind.
Her house and heart were always open to friends and acquaintances who quickly became “family”. She was rich in her faith and we will take comfort in knowing she is dancing in Heaven with her beloved husband once again.
