Marjorie Logsdon

Marjorie M. “Margie” Logsdon, 67, of Carey, died peacefully on Saturday, April 2, 2022, at the James Cancer Center in Columbus, following a year-long battle with cancer.
On Jan. 16, 1955, Margie was born at home in Wharton, the youngest of nine children of the late Walter H. “Wassie” and Lucille Mae (Dill) Stansbery.
Growing up together, Margie fell for Lloyd Logsdon, whom she married on Nov. 14, 1981. They shared nearly 23 years together. He preceded her in death on May 6, 2004.
For 40-plus years, Margie was the canteen manager at the VFW Post 3759 in Carey, where she loved visiting with everyone. She was a life member of the VFW Post 3759 Auxiliary and she was a member of Carey Eagles Lodge and Carey Conservation Auxiliary.
After Lloyd’s passing, Margie connected with one of his racing buddies, David “Red Dog” Bollinger. They shared 15 years together and a love for camping. In 2008 they started taking their camper to her “favorite place in the world,” the Wild Wings Campground in Oak Harbor. They cherished every moment of their time there.
Having a green thumb, Margie loved growing flowers around her house and at her camper. She also was a big Pittsburgh Steelers and University of Michigan Wolverines fan and she enjoyed collecting owls.
Everyone loved spending time with Margie, a cheerful and fun-loving gal, though she also could be a feisty red head, who didn’t take any crap from anyone.
Margie had a huge heart and she took pride in being everyone’s caregiver. She took care of Lloyd and was there for all of her brothers and sisters when they needed her most. She also loved to spoil her granddaughter, Hanna Mae, rotten.
She will be dearly missed by her fiance, David “Red Dog” Bollinger; two children, Mathew Stansbery and Kimberly Allison; one granddaughter, Hanna Mae Molnar; a brother, Dennis “Toby” Stansbery; numerous nieces, nephews and dear friends, including her “partner in crime,” Lynn Keister.
Including her husband and parents, Margie was preceded in death by seven siblings, Charles “Bump” Stansbery, Jimmy Stansbery, Helen Ratliff, Phylis Hickle, Rosie Amos, Lorraine Brown and Michael Stansbery.
Her family will greet friends from 4-7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5, at Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home, Carey. In true Margie fashion, family and friends are invited to celebrate her life at noon on Wednesday, April 6, at the VFW Post 3759, Carey. Burial will take place at a later date at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Carey.
Memorial contributions may be made to the VFW Color Guard or to Wyandot Memorial Hospital, c/o oncology department, to help them get new chairs, and they may be sent to the funeral home.
Condolences may be expressed to the family by visiting
