HENDRICKS – Margaret Elizabeth Hendricks went to her heavenly home April 15, 2015, after several years of declining health. She was born in 1921 in East Mauch Chunk, Pennsylvania to Nora and John Walck as one of eight brothers and sisters, all of whom have preceded her in death. She is also preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Robert, and their son, Bobby.
 Margie, as she was affectionately called, moved to Kissimmee in 1958. She was one of the first registered dental assistants in Osceola County. She retired in 1999 after 39 years of service in this field. She loved her yard work, and music, and many friends. She had a beautiful smile for everyone, as well as a hug or a pat on the fanny. She will be lovingly remembered.
 Her final wish was for her cremation to be entrusted to Grissom Funeral Home. Interment will be at Grandview Cemetery (Salem, Ohio) alongside of her husband. There will not be a service here. Thank you to Osceola Health Care Center for all you have done in her final care, and to all who have brought joy into Margie’s life.
