Margie (Pulliam) Sargent

| September 28, 2020 12:00 PM

With profound sadness we announce the passing of our loving mother, sister and friend. She left us to be with our Lord on Sept. 3, 2020, while resting peacefully.

Margie was born in Kingston, Idaho, and spent her early years living on the family dairy farm with her parents, Gladys and Theodore; her three brothers: Ted, Norm and John; and her sister, Bonnie.

In the mid-1950s Margie was employed by General Telephone in Kellogg, Idaho. By 1960, she had transferred to General Telephone in Wenatchee, Wash. It was there that she met her husband, James Sargent. They were married in Spokane, Wash., on June 9, 1962. Her son, Brett, was born in March 1963. She spent the next nine years as a housewife and wonderful mother.

In 1972, Margie completed her real estate training and became a licensed Realtor. She joined the team at Krest Realty, where she was a fantastic salesperson. She also spent many years as a Realtor at Town and Country Realty and C Fritz Nelson Realty, where she was a property manager, managing several hundred rental property units.

After five years of rental management, she decided to take a break from real estate. In the late 1980s, she started selling for the Home Interiors company, where she won many top sales awards and honors. After several years, she decided to get back into real estate and spent the remainder of her career in the real estate business.

Margie will be greatly missed by many lifelong friends, as well as her loving family. Margie is survived by her brothers, John Pulliam (Yucaipa, Calif.) and Norm Pulliam (San Marcos, Calif.); her sister, Bonnie Carlson (Spokane Valley, Wash.); and her son, Brett Sargent and his wife, Jodie (Spokane Valley). Margie is also survived by her three grandchildren who she loved dearly: Megan, Michael and James; as well as numerous nieces and nephews who she adored and loved spending time with.

Margie was preceded in death by her parents, Theodore and Gladys Pulliam; brothers Robert and Theodore; her husband, James Sargent; and her niece, Mary Ann Pulliam
