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.

  3. When my parents, my brother and I first moved to Tennessee from Alabama, I was in 6th grade at Nashville Christian School. Brian along with others were my first friends away from home And we are still true friends to this day. I met his precious Granny (Marie Yuchnitz) on a class trip. She was one of our chaperones. I immediately adored her and her and Brian’s relationship. Their relationship was like mine with my grandmother who I was missing. She was definitely a highlight of the trip for our entire class. Everyone had so much fun around her and Brian; so many fun memories were made. I later in high school even worked for her at their family business getting to meet more of the family (Susie, Andy and others) who I also adored and loved being around and still do. Mrs. Marie Yuchnitz is truly amiable and beloved and will always be adored and remembered. God’s Love glowed all around her and she shared that with everyone in her path. She always left me better than what I was every time I saw her. She passed that genuine love down to her family. Susie and Brian are the same. They love BIG, care deeply and always make you laugh. I am blessed to have all three of you apart of my life and I will cherish that always. As I have sat here and cried writing this, I am filled with joy and happiness knowing we will all be together again one day with our Heavenly Father. Although she is at rest and peace now, she will not be forgotten. She will always be cherished and missed. You all are in my thoughts and prayers as I know the heartache of losing someone who is and will continue to be a big part of your life. Her legacy will carry on through you and the pain of her loss will fade as you carry this out. Her love, joy and laughter will overcome if you allow it to. She was an amazing lady that I will always admire. 💜 Love Always, Faith
