Irene Mavis Margison, 87, was called home by the Lord on October 11 at Wesley Health Center, Saratoga Springs, NY, after a long and fruitful life. Born Sept. 23, 1925 in Cornwallville, Greene County, NY, she was the daughter of Aria Benjamin and Josephine Hutte. She spent her childhood days helping out on her family farm, and attended school in the one room schoolhouse in Cornwallville. On October 15, 1943, she married Ivan Margison from Acra NY. In the early 1950's they moved to Rotterdam, NY, and upon her husbands retirement they moved to South Daytona Beach, Fl. After the death of her husband in 1987, "Mavis" relocated to Clifton Park, NY. She was a communicant of Jonesville United Methodist Church. She was the proud mother of 6 children: Barbara Anne Margison who died of leukemia in 1950, Ronald Margison and the late Barbara of Stuart Fl., James Margison and wife Penny of Daytona Beach Fl., Kenneth Margison and wife Laurie of Pittsfield MA., David Margison and wife Antonella of Queensbury NY, and Lori Margison Santilli and husband Chris of Ballston Spa NY. She is also survived by her sister, Olive Blagriff of Homestead, Fl, 14 grand children, 9 great grand children, and many nieces, nephews, friends, and loved ones who will surely reap the rewards of knowing and being loved by such a warm and caring soul. Burial will be in the Cornwallville Methodist cemetery.
"Gently from its cosy bower, close beside the rippling brook, bloomed a gentle, blue-eyed flower, Cared for both by sun and shower, in its quiet and shaded nook. Star-eyed flower, how I love thee, blooming in a sheltered spot. Brilliant in the skies above me, Pure as whited clouds around thee, lovely, sweet Forget-me-not."
