November 18, 1931 - December 2, 2020
Margie Joy (McLellan) Wentworth, beloved wife, mother, granny, great granny, aunt and dear friend, passed away in Fort Collins, Colorado on December 2, 2020 at 12:30 pm at the age of eighty-nine. Margie was born to Luke and Lora McLellan on November 18, 1931, in Hayworth, Oklahoma. She attended school in Hatfield, Arkansas. Her childhood was filled with love and laughter. Margie met her future husband, “Bob” Wentworth, while growing up together in the Potter community. Bob and Margie were married at her Grandpa Anderson’s home, near Mena Arkansas on September 18, 1948. After a short time living near Dallas, Texas, Margie and Bob moved to the San Joaquin Valley in California, where they raised their two children and Bob worked in the oil fields. Margie was an avid quilter and seamstress; making many dresses and costumes for Carol over the years and many beautiful quilts for her family. She loved to read books, volunteered at church and the area grade school, as well as the Cub Scout den mother and AA volunteer. Margie was extremely proud to have the distinction of being the first non-AA member in Kern County to serve as a crisis counselor, answering the AA crisis hotline in Kern County. Margie enjoyed laughing, always enjoyed a cup of coffee and was willing to go on an adventure in a moments notice. Attending the Indy 500, being allowed down in the pits, and meeting the drivers with her granddaughter, Lisa, was truly a dream come true! Margie is predeceased in death by her loving husband, Samuel “Bob” Robert Wentworth, her son, Samuel R. Wentworth Jr., her brothers, Everett and Clyde McLellan, her sister, Melissa Lorene Vert and great-granddaughter, Madison Broadbent. Margie is lovingly remembered by her daughter, Carol Flowers and her son-in-law, Curtis Flowers of Fort Collins, CO. Her grandchildren: David, William (Kevin), Curt (Elly) Flowers, Lisa Broadbent, great-grandchildren: Andrew (Jordan), Jake, Zachary, Justin, Madalyn, Tatum, McKenzie, Liam and Aubrey, great-great grandchildren: Johnnie, Gypsy, Pyper, and Keon. Margie will be laid to rest in Gann at New Potter Cemetery near Mena, Arkansas, beside her husband and son. Services are under the direction of Beasley Wood Funeral Home.
