Margie Irene Esslinger Fields went to be with the Lord on Monday, July 16, 2018, at the age of eighty-nine after a sudden illness. Celebrate Margie’s life by visiting www.andersonbethany.com to offer a memory or expression of sympathy for her family.
On September 29, 1928, Margie was born in Wheeler, TX, to Roy and Lila Esslinger. Margie was raised in and graduated from high school in Wheeler, TX. This is where she met her “one and only” love, Harry Fields “Jr”. They married on December 10, 1946, in Shamrock, TX. They were married for nearly sixty-six years. She and her husband moved to Roswell where they opened and operated Deluxe Trim and Upholstery for fifty years. Margie worked in the office at the business. She was also a homemaker to Junior and their two sons.
Margie enjoyed spending time with her family, working in the yard, watching game shows and doing word searches. Most recently she enjoyed special days with her dear friend, Sue Mathews. They would get their hair done, go out to eat and run around town.
Preceding Margie in death were her parents: Roy and Lila Esslinger; husband, Junior; sons: Cleveland and Phil.
Surviving to cherish Margie’s memory are her granddaughters: Sutra Sanders and husband, Dirk of Roswell, NM, Lyla Delp and husband, Charlie of Groton, CT; great-grandchildren: Ashley of Las Cruces, NM, Jerome and Zoe of Groton, CT; sister, Dorothy Holdeman and family of El Paso, TX; and many nieces; nephews; and friends.
Honoring Margie’s wishes, she will be cremated. No services are scheduled at this time.
She and her husband will be placed together in the General Douglas L. McBride Veterans Cemetery in Roswell, NM.
Margie’s tribute was beautifully written in her honor by her family.

Those we love
remain with us
For love itself lives on
And cherished memories never fade
Because a loved
one’s gone
Those we love
can never be
More than a
thought apart
For as long as
there is memory
They’ll always live
in our hearts.
