WILMINGTON — Marjorie Francis “Margie” Milton Beasley, 93, died Friday, Dec. 25, 2020, after a short battle with cancer.
The daughter of the late Millard and Pearl Dawson Milton, Margie was born Sept. 15, 1927, in Avenstoke, Anderson County, Kentucky. In her early years, the family moved to Bridgeport, Franklin County, Kentucky. After her father’s death at an early age, Margie worked during high school to help support her family. She was a lifelong member of Pigeon Fork Baptist Church, Waddy, Kentucky.
Margie married Roy Beasley in 1957. They moved from Louisville, Kentucky, to Wilmington in 1968. She began working at Hardees in 1977, where she developed many long-lasting friendships that evolved into a group that met daily for coffee and biscuits for many years. Margie will be remembered for her love and devotion to her grandchildren, who knew her as “Mamaw.” She was an avid Louisville and Kentucky college basketball fan and loved to talk basketball to anyone who would listen.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Roy; and brother, Curtis Milton Sr.
Margie is survived by her son, Tim Beasley (Laura); daughter, Pam Wells (Mike); four beloved grandchildren, Ashleigh Wells, Josh Beasley, Hunter Beasley and Jake Beasley; nephew, Curtis Milton (Debbie); as well as many other nieces and nephews.
A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 30, at Oleander Memorial Gardens.
