You may not have seen her at many other events because she would use most of her leave time from work for pgr missions.
It was a PGR run where I first met her and her husband "TZ" and it doesn't take long to figure, hey, these are people I want to ride with.
"Z" or Margie, as she is known had a passion for Veterans issues before she knew of the Patriot Guard Riders so it was a no brainer that as soon as they learned about it they not only signed up, but they showed up, for run after run.
"Z" isn't one of the people always out front. More often than not is she is the one doing grunt work. Packing, unpacking and hauling flags, giving water out and often times taking the pics that I wasn't getting. IF not on the back of her husbands bike then from the back of the pack in her truck.
Rarely would you hear her complain about, heat, cold or rain. You never heard her complain on some recent missions about the pain she was obviously in. More often than not she cracks some kind of joke that makes it all bearable for everyone. We all know these kind of people and this "we" anyway admires them.
Recently she volunteered to head up HOTH or Help on the Home front in this area. Ironic since it wasn't long after that she learned she has cancer. Mantle Cell Lymphoma to be exact:
