Margie Ann More

December 17, 1916 — August 11, 2018

With the ending of World War I the previous November, 1916 saw U.S. troops returning home. William Boeing would incorporate Pacific Aero Products, later renamed the Boeing Company, the first 40-hour work week officially began in the Endicott-Johnson factories of Western New York and President Woodrow Wilson signed a bill incorporating the Boy Scouts of America along with signing legislation creating the National Park Service. The year also marked the births of film actors, Kirk Douglas, Jackie Gleason, and Betty Grable. Along with those birth announcements that year, Henry and Leah (McCoy) Flaugh announced the birth of their third born daughter, Margie Ann Flaugh on December 17th in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Margie grew up on the family farm, Flaugh Dairy, located just west of Fort Wayne on Bass Road near where Buckner Park currently is today. She was raised along side her sisters, Alice, Helen and Hazel and brothers, Ralph, Elmer and Robert. Margie also had an infant brother, Clarence who passed away. Growing up on the dairy farm did not leave them a lot of free time since they had plenty of responsibilities and chores. While she attended Arcola High School, she participated in volleyball and basketball. More importantly, she also got to know the man that she would create her future with. Harold E. "Gene" More and Margie grew up going to school with each other and graduated from Arcola High School Class of 1934.

A few years later Gene and Margie married on September 18, 1937 in Fort Wayne. In 1940, they moved to Columbia City where they would raise their two sons, Leon and Steven. The family first lived on Washington Street before moving to North Chauncy Street. While her husband started operation of Whitley County Tractor Sales in 1938, now known as More Farm Store, Margie maintained the home life and took care of her husband and children. Since 1949, she was a member of the Columbia City United Methodist Church, where she enjoyed arranging flowers around the facility. She also was a member of the United Methodist Women, Parliamentary Law & Literary Club and Town & Country Home Demonstration Club.

She and Gene love being with each other and she enjoyed camping and golfing together and found relaxation and peace in watching birds fly around along with visiting and reminiscing while going through photos of her 101 years of life. Out of all things though, Margie loved her family the most. She cherished all of them and they brought great joy to her. She may have been a cautious lady, but she was very loving, proper and proud of her family.

On the evening of Saturday, August 11, 2018, Margie Ann More passed away at Miller's at Oak Pointe at 8:37 p.m. She is survived by her son, Steve (Gloria) More, of Columbia City; daughter-in-law, Marg More, of Columbia City; eight grandchildren; and 17 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Gene More on November 3, 2007; son, Leon More on June 17, 2018; daughter-in-law, Jill More; sisters, Helen Luyben, Hazel Castle and Alice Flaugh; brothers, Ralph Flaugh, Elmer Flaugh, Robert Flaugh and infant brother, Clarence Flaugh; and two infant grandchildren.
