Margie was the daughter of the late Philip and Anne Wiseman. A lifelong baseball fan, Margie coached hundreds of young ladies in Dominion in the 70’s and 80’s, she was a star pitcher and 3rd basewoman for the Branch 78 Legionettes. Her favorite baseball adage (whether in coaching, playing or watching the Blue Jays was : “If it hit your glove… you should have had it.” Margie had many friends in Dominion in Bingo halls, was adored by her many nieces and nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
