Marjorie Beth Cannedy Tyson
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.

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

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.
