She attended RJ Reynolds High School, and graduated from Converse College. Margie spent many years living in Beaufort, SC and Mount Olive, NC, and loved all her friends in both towns. Margie was a talented educator and an accomplished executive assistant for several college presidents and private entrepreneurs. She returned to Winston-Salem in 2009 to enjoy her retirement years with her husband of over 50 years, Sterling B. Pierce, Jr.
She is survived by her loving and caring husband, Sterling; her son, Tad Pierce; her daughter, Elinor Cinquemani; her daughter-in-law, Cynthia Pierce; her son-in-law Matt Cinquemani; and four wonderful grandchildren, Lexi Pierce, Will Pierce, Alex Cinquemani and Joe Cinquemani. The family would like to thank Patricia Giraldo, whose care for Margie and companionship will always be cherished.
The family will receive friends at the home of Tad Pierce from 11-2 on October 28, 2017.

Sterling, so sorry to hear of your loss. May God bless you and your family.
Billy & Ann told us last evening of Margie's passing. Sorry to hear of it, and know that it's been a tough few years for you and your family. All the best to you, Tad, and Elinor.
I am so sorry to learn of Margie's passing. What great times we had with her and Sterling in Beaufort. Her great sense of humor will be remembered by all who knew her. My prayers go out for her, Sterling and her family. God Bless her and all those she loved.

We are so sorry for your loss. We remember the good times we shared playing spades and the trip we took together to Hot Springs. Marge kept us laughing. We will always remember you both.
Sorry for the loss of your love one. Phil 4:6, 7 will give you the peace of God. John 5:28, 29 assures Jesus will restore life to those who has died. These are wonderful blessings to look forward to knowing your loved one is in God's memory. Hope this thought brings comfort.
May you find comfort and strength in knowing that God loves you and he cares for you, through talking to God in prayer, and from God's Word, the Bible. Psalm 36:7 says: "How precious your loyal love is, O God! In the shadow of your wings, the sons of men take refuge". Psalm 62:8 "Pour out your hearts before him. God is a refuge for us". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 147:3; 1 Peter 5:7) jw.org
My heart goes out to you and your family during this time. Please know that you friends and family are there for you during this difficult time. May your loving memories bring you a peace in the days ahead. Know to that God cares for you for he promises at Isaiah 41:10 that he “will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.”
