Margie Marie Yuchnitz
June 4, 1935 ~ June 30, 2022
Margie Marie Yuchnitz It is with profound sadness that the family of Margie "Marie" Yuchnitz, 87, announce her peaceful passing June 30, 2022. Marie was born June 4, 1935, in Nashville, TN and passed June 30, 2022, in her Nashville home comfortably in her bed, cared for by the family that loved her. Marie was a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She married the love of her life at the tender age of fifteen and lead a wonderful life traveling the world and growing her family with her (late) husband ("Frank" Francis J. Yuchnitz, United States Air Force). Marie took pride in her service as a military spouse. She also enjoyed many years of membership, and lifelong friends, in the International PBX/ Telecommunicators Club. Marie and Frank settled in Nashville after Frank's military career and opened their family business in November 1978. Marie continued as the bookkeeper until recent years. This wonderful lady has held many titles over the years but none so special as grandmother. Known as “Granny Ree”, “Granny Yuch”, “GG”, or simply “Granny” she will be remembered by her grandchildren for her adventurous spirit and energy and cherished memories of shared overnight school trips, ballgames, carwashes, and countless sleepovers and tea parties she hosted. Grandchildren who lived further away loved visiting and always looked forward to their time together. "GG's" greatgrandchildren will remember going to her house to swim in her pool and baking favorite treats at Christmas time. Marie will be greatly missed but is now home in her Heavenly Father's house and reunited with the love of her life and beloved members who are surely celebrating her homecoming. Preceded in death by her parents Margie B. Floyd and Horace W. Floyd Sr.; husband, Francis J. Yuchnitz; children James "Jimmy" Francis Yuchnitz, Michael John Yuchnitz, Anthony "Andy" Christopher Yuchnitz and daughter in law Margaret "Lynn" Yuchnitz; brothers, Horace "William" Floyd Jr., and James "Bubba" A. Floyd; granddaughter Jessica Yuchnitz Browning. Marie is survived by daughters Susan Shockley, Linda Greer (John); grandchildren Misty Gamez (Christi Smarch), April Roche (David), Ann Yuchnitz-Traynum (Michael), Brian Yuchnitz, Justin Yuchnitz, Jeromy Greer, Noah Yuchnitz (Young), Bradley Greer (Kelly), Jennifer Garner (Josh), Brittany Sullivan (Luke), Megan Yuchnitz; as well as 21 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild due in January 2023. Marie was a wonderful and caring soul with a heart for God and helping others. To know Marie was to love her and she surely spread her loving and generous spirit with friends and family far and wide. She was respected, cherished and loved immensely by all whose lives she touched. Marie would want everyone to grieve in their own manner but would also wish for everyone to celebrate her life and her now Heavenly refuge.
