Death*13 Nov 2006 Margie died on 13 Nov 2006 at Las Vegas, Clark Co, NV, at age 75. Margie Lee Dooley, beloved mother and wife, died Nov. 13, 2006, in Las Vegas, Nev., after a long and courageous fight with lupus.

Margie was born Nov. 18, 1930, in Minden. She met and married Dixie Lee Dooley in 1950 and they were married 57 years.

She was a devoted military wife and went through three wars with her husband and later helped him in his real estate business. She was most proud of her only child, magician Dixie Dooley. Margie and Dixie Sr., after a number of visits, made their home in Las Vegas in 1993 to be close to their son, after living for a short time in Germany and then in Augusta, Ga., for 32 years.

Margie was a unique woman and was often mistaken for Eva Gabor, but her beauty was much deeper than her looks. Margie was highly intelligent, quick-witted and loved to laugh. She was quick to make friends with her very unique sense of humor and kindness. She possessed dignity and charm that would light up a room.

She loved animals, shopping and keeping up with current events. But her most beautiful attribute was her love for life and her love for her small but tight-knit family.

Never a day will pass that she will not be in our hearts and memories. Her voice of good advice and wisdom will forever echo in the minds and hearts of those who had the privilege to know her.

Margie is survived by two nieces who reside in Las Vegas, as well as her husband, retired Sergeant Major Dixie Lee Dooley, and her son and his family, magician Dixie Dwayne Dooley.

There will be a memorial for her family and close friends. As of now, a date has not been set.1
