Margie Acey Dobbs, age 86, of Somerset, passed away on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, at the Jean Waddle Hospice Care Center.
Margie was born on December 31, 1931, in Somerset, daughter of the late Henry and Zord Dick Stringer. She was a devoted wife and mother, and along with raising her own children and grandchildren, seemed to always have a hand in helping raise other children. Margie loved to crochet, color and do search a word puzzles; she enjoyed watching baseball. She would never gamble but loved to watch horseracing and had a knack for "picking a winner". Margie was a member of the Heritage Hope Church of God. She loved her dogs, Sylvester and Marley.
