Maggie Ratliff Roland, age 98, went to be with her Lord Jesus on Friday, December 22, 2017 at Autumn Care of Marion after several years of declining health.  A lifelong resident of Marion, she was born in McDowell County on June 10, 1919 to the late Jim Ratliff and Martha Lanning Ratliff.  Mrs. Roland was a homemaker and was a faithful member of Emmanuel Free Will Baptist Church.  She dearly loved her family, especially her children and all the babies born into her line.  She also loved her church family and enjoyed doing things with them.  Camping and going to the beach were among her favorite pastimes.  Her husband of 58 years, Arnold Horace Roland, a son, Horace Roland, and two daughters, Elizabeth Moore and Lillie Salmons, preceded her in death.

 

Left behind are three children, J. D. Roland of Marion, Mary Byrd and husband Ed of Marion, and Betty Jane Phillips and husband Jimmy of Bakersville; twenty-five grandchildren, fifty great-grandchildren, and numerous great-great-grandchildren.
