Marjorie "Margie" Lea Sandidge

Marjorie “Margie” Lee Sandidge, 76, of California, MD passed away peacefully on March 28, 2023 with her loving family by her side. 

Margie was born on October 26, 1946, to the late Joseph Albert and Amanda Louise Dean in Leonardtown, MD.

On August 6, 1966, she married Richard Lee Sandidge at Hollywood United Methodist Church, Hollywood MD.

Margie was a life-long resident of St. Mary’s County, and graduated in the first Commencement Ceremony of Chopticon High School in 1965.

She loved playing BINGO and was known to carry around a lucky horseshoe or two.  She enjoyed completing word search puzzles, playing Pitch and Rummy with family. Most of all, she LOVED spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was completely devoted to them and dedicated her life to them. She was always a quiet presence, behind the scenes supporting her family. She provided daycare for most all of her grandchildren so that her children could pursue careers knowing they were with Grandma and in the best care. She was a blessing to so many of us.

Margie is survived by her children: Tammie (Kurt) Sebacher of California, MD, Richard (Beth) Sandidge, Jr. of Port Republic, MD, Donna (Bart) Pulliam of Lexington Park, MD, Steven Sandidge of California, MD, and Tracy (Rusty) Edelen of Mechanicsville, MD.  She is also survived by thirteen grandchildren, three great grandchildren, and her siblings: Gary Dean of Myrtle Beach, SC, Marlene (Rick) Freeman and Dale (Susan) Dean both of Hollywood, MD.
