Margie Laura Farrell

January 5, 1931 — February 22, 2020

Margie Laura Farrell, 89, of Tacoma, Washington, passed away Saturday, February 22, 2020, at St. Mary’s Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

She was born January 5, 1931, in Stockton, California, the daughter of Henry William Hansen and Helen Frances Moore.

Margie was united in marriage to James Robert Holman on May 10, 1949, in Tacoma, WA. He preceded her in death on January 10, 1981. On December 30, 1988, she married Thomas Fredrick Farrell in Tacoma, WA, and he died on July 16, 2011.

Margie was a loving homemaker to her family for many years. She later owned and operated Tony’s Tavern in Puyallup, WA, and the Huckleberry Inn in Key Center, WA, for over 20 years.

She was a gardening enthusiast with an uncanny knack for knowing the names of every plant and flower she encountered. She loved to dance, water ski, and travel. She was a lifelong advocate for eating dessert before the main course.
