On July 19, 1939, God blessed us with one of his most strongest, happiest, friendliest, and loving angels that he has. Margie M. Bridges was a blessing born to the late Mr. and Mrs. Frank and Annie Bridges of Bogalusa.

She was reared at East Jerusalem Baptist Church in Lee’s Creek. She was a faithful member of Greater Northshore Full Gospel Baptist Church of Slidell, with pastor Bishop Robert J. Taylor.

She began her walk through this life with Clem Holloway, where she mothered five children — three sons, Carlton (Fabe) Holloway of Douglasville, Ga., Clayton (Rita) Holloway of Knoxville, Tenn., and Clemile (Shawnya) Holloway of Slidell; and two daughters, LaTanya Holloway of Slidell and Sharon Holloway of Bogalusa. She leaves behind one brother-in-law, James Mitchell of Mobile, Ala., 20 beautiful grandchildren and 32 beautiful great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by three brothers and three sisters, Joshua Bridges, Isaac “Ike” Bridges, Frank Lee “Peaches” Bridges, Defisher Keller Johnson, Mamie Mitchell and Pauline Bridges Magee Elzey; and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

Visitation will be held on Friday, Oct. 19, at the chapel of Crain and Sons Funeral Home from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m., followed by the family hour from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m.
