Marjorie Kay "Margie" Donovan Jones, age 72, passed away on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018, at Palmetto Health Richland, surrounded by her children and sisters.

Margie, most recently of Sumter, was born in Toccoa, Georgia, and grew up in Columbia, where she attended Eau Claire High School. She later received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing, which allowed her to use her natural gifts caring for others as an oncologist nurse and home health nurse. Her deep love, respect, and generosity towards others is a legacy she left to all who loved her. One of her greatest joys was the giving of gifts to her family, friends and those unable to do for themselves.

Margie was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Edward Jones; and her parents, Richard Frank Donovan and Ellette Bond Donovan.

She is survived by her three children, Jamie Young (Mary) of St. Simons Island, Georgia, Tosha Young (Mark) of Greenville and Roger Anthony (April) of North Carolina; eight grandchildren, Evans, Caroline, James, Jackson, Claire, Briley, Meg and Amelia; and three sisters, Gail Deith of Lexington, Barbara Boone of Charleston and Cathy Ellison of Elizabeth City, North Carolina.

Services will be private.
