November 29, 2003

Margie J. Harvey, a retired teacher of home economics and the Christian faith, died Tuesday in her sleep at the Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital. The West Baltimore resident was 75.

Margie Jubilee was born in Accomack County, Va., in 1928 and was raised there until she moved to Turners Station as a teen-ager. She graduated from Sparrows Point High School in 1945.

Mrs. Harvey earned her bachelor's degree in 1949 from then-Morgan State College and a master's degree in education from Loyola College. In 1952, she began teaching high school home economics and science in the Baltimore public schools. She retired in 1983 from Clifton Park High School.

She met her future husband, George Harvey, when she was a teen-ager in Turners Station, and the two married in 1958. They settled on Denison Street after their wedding and remained there for the 45 years of their marriage.

Mrs. Harvey was an active member of John Wesley United Methodist Church on West North Avenue, where she was a lay speaker and did community service work. She also taught Bible study classes at local nursing homes, Mr. Harvey said.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. today at John Wesley United Methodist Church, 3202 W. North Ave.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by a son, Keith Harvey of Baltimore, and a granddaughter.
