Margie Hosick

Margie Elaine Hosick, 83, passed away Feb. 27, 2013, in Rockford, where she had been a resident for the past few years.

Margie was born July 25, 1929, in Mt. Vernon, the daughter of Margaret Pace Bullock and Arthur George Bullock. She was a member of the sixth generation of Bullocks living in Jefferson County and a descendant of Samuel Bullock, who moved to Jefferson County in 1828.

On Feb. 3, 1951, she married Earle Wesley Hosick and celebrated 46 years of marriage before he passed away in 1997. She was close to Earle’s mother, Carrie Houston Hosick, whom she called “Mother Hosick,” and his aunt, Marion Houston.

In their marriage, they enjoyed meeting friends at good restaurants, playing pinochle, camping, picnicking at Lake Seamore and traveling. Margie and Earle were longtime members of Logan Street and First Baptist Churches in Mt. Vernon.

Margie is survived by two of her brothers, James (Diane) Bullock, of Concord, Calif. and Everett (Ann Roane) Bullock, of Spring Green, Wis.; seven nieces and nephews, Michael, Brian, Debbie, Julie, Marnie, Jill and Joel; as well as several great-nieces and great-nephews and great-great-nieces and great-great-nephews. Jetaime, one of her great-nieces, is glad she was old enough and lived close enough to have known Aunt Margie. She wishes all her cousins had been that fortunate. Margie is further survived by her lifelong friend, Jean Estes King.

Margie loved the children of her family and friends (especially the Payne, Large, Estes and Mitchell kids) and enjoyed them regardless of their age. Children lucky enough to be in her orbit got attention and affection in good measure.

Margie was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Earle; and her brother, Arthur Max Bullock.

Margie started her working career at age 14 at the American Laundry. During the school year, she walked to Mt Vernon High School then to work and then home, which was in the woods northwest of West Salem Methodist Church.
