Marjorie Beth Cannedy Tyson

August 1, 1928 –
 April 14, 2023


Marjorie Beth Cannedy Tyson of Dallas, died Friday April 14 at the age of 94. She was born August 1, 1928 in Hollis, OK to parents George and Maurine Cannedy. The oldest of five children, Margie is survived by siblings Kenneth Cannedy of Antioch CA, Mary Huff of Mineola TX, Phil Cannedy of Tyler TX, and Greta Gustafson of Pt Aransas TX.

Margie began a career working in doctor offices in the 1960’s at Launey Clinic.  When Dr Thomas Nelson opened his private practice, she became office manager until her retirement in the mid 1990’s.  Margie also was an avid flower gardener who loved growing a variety of flowers. It was obvious she possessed a green thumb.

Margie was married to Kenneth Tyson in 1950 until his death in 2014. She is survived by son Ronnie Tyson (Shirley) and daughter Mary Beth Moore (Jim). Her five grandchildren are Chris Moore, Nathan Tyson, Jeremy Moore, Chelsey Tyson (fiancée Drew Warner) and Matt Moore (Lesley). Margie was also blessed with nine great grandchildren: Cash, Lydia, Brody, Drew, Carson, Madeline, Isaac, Meyer, and Gus. She looked forward to the “Moore Tribe” visits to see their Meemaw.

The family thanks her niece, Nancy Tyson, and friends Sara Cox and Marsha Weaver, for their companionship and caregiving.

Graveside services to be held at DFW Memorial Cemetery April 27 at 2:30PM.

    Margie and I became close friends after her stroke a few years ago. Her son, Ronnie asked me if I could help out with some of her care when she left rehab, and since I had recently retired from nursing, I agreed. We discovered we had the same passion for shopping even if it was just window shopping. Now she was already over 90 yrs old and I had a hard time keeping track of her if the store was very big. Seemed like she could almost fly in that walker. I was thinking at the time, maybe I should go thru some rehab. Anyway, we both looked forward to our time together going to the Dr appointments, then lunch, and of course some shopping. I will miss you, Sweet Margie, but we WILL meet up again!!

    There were 5, now there are 4. She was the big sister to us. She was a force of nature in her younger days. Take charge, take care or whatever was needed at the time. Always a striking figure, she had great taste & looked perfect. Should’ve been a personal shopper. A knack to give the most appropriate gifts. And, as Marsha said, she liked to shop. Doesn’t seem she’s really gone.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
