November 6, 1938, to March 16, 2021, Margie Fay (Edler) Janota, 82, of Rockport, passed away peacefully at home on March 16, 2021.

Margie was born in Austin, Texas to John Page Edler and Irene (Southwell) Edler, the youngest of three children.  In the 1940’s the family moved to Rockport.

She was a loving daughter, mother, aunt, grandmother, and special friend.  She will be greatly missed.

She is preceded in death by her parents, brothers Johnny and Bill Edler, Husband of 26 years, Edward Wayne Janota, and grandchild, Jacob Allen Payne.

Margie was a teacher at heart and worked for many years as CCD Coordinator for Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rockport, ABC School in Rockport, and as a Teacher’s Aid at Live Oak Elementary, retiring for health reasons.  She enjoyed cooking and baking, and everyone loved her pies, breads, and sausage kolaches.  She loved animals, especially her dog Sadie.

A Memorial Service celebrating her life will be held at Charlie Marshall’s Funeral Home in Rockport, on March 27, 2021, at 3:00 p.m.  Margie loved the color pink, so to honor her we will be wearing something pink.
