Trust in the Lord with all Thine heart: and lean not unto thine own understanding, In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy path. Proverbs 3:5-6

Margie Payne was born on January 21, 1938, to Horace and Manola Tyler in Alabama. She was the fourth of eleven children.

She passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, in Cleveland.

She was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents; parents, Horace and Manola Tyler; five brothers, Horace, Larry, Wilmon (WC) , Willie and Eugene; four sisters: Christine, Ethel Mae, Mary and Annie; three aunts, Annie Laura Craft, Clara Funchess, and Nola Tillman, and six uncles, Herbert Hall, Donnie Hall, Roosevelt Hall, Sanders Hall, Henry Hall, and Carl Funchess.

Margie accepted Christ at an early age by joining the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. As a child, she was active in the church. When she moved to Cleveland, she united with Avon Avenue Baptist Church and was a very active member who enjoyed serving in the choir. She loved to share her God Given Gift of singing to minister to others about God’s Grace. She also supported other ministries in the church.

Her beautiful voice and vivacious personality would light up any room. Margie knew the goodness of the Lord and served him until the end. Margie lived to the fullest by serving others and was famously known for her fashion and style from her head to her feet. She was outgoing and often shared her fond memories of the past with others.

Margie loved to tell of God’s goodness and would often become filled with the Holy-Spirit as she gave her testimony.

Margie Payne will forever be loved and cherished by her family and friends. Keeping her memories especially close to their heart will be her four loving children: Otis Williams, Jr. (Angie) of Cleveland, Ohio; Darryl Tyler of Stafford, VA; Jacqueline D. Payne of San Diego, CA., and Demetrice Porter of Cleveland, Ohio, one beloved sister: Dorothy Jean Smith (Edward) of Tchula, MS; two grandchildren, Jessika Williams and Otis Williams, III. A host of nephews, nieces and cousins along with many friends from the church and community including two close friends, Earlene and Lois.

Margie was a loving, foster parent to several children including Darrelle Jackson.

As we celebrate Margie Payne’s Life, we are thankful to all who supported her in good health as well as when her health declined. We further extend appreciation to the staff at Mayfield Health Care, Cleveland Clinic Staff (Lyndsey and Kytta), Hospice of the Western Reserve (Steve), and three special cousins: Creola Delaney, Dessie Harvey, and Daisy Tillman.

Humbly Submitted, The Family
