Margie Ruth Raper, 92, of Fredericksburg passed away Sunday, July 27, 2014, from congestive heart failure, at the home she shared with her daughter and son-in-law for more than 18 years. She had been under home hospice care since November.

Mrs. Raper was originally from Phenix City, Ala., and, as a Navy spouse, had lived in Japan, New Jersey, California, Maryland and Florida, before she moved permanently to Virginia in 1996.

She enjoyed her family and friends and was comforted in her final months by her almost constant companion, the beloved family cat, Blackjack.

Mrs. Raper is survived by her children, Charles W. Raper Jr. and his wife, Suzanne, Sandra K. Junkins and her husband, Lawrence, and Birdie J. Martinez; her adopted son, also named Charles W. Raper; eight grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren; and two brothers.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Charles W. Raper Sr.; a daughter, Beverly M. Spivey; three brothers; and one sister.

Mrs. Raper's family will receive friends from 10 to 11 a.m. Thursday, July 31, at Found and Sons Funeral Chapel, 10719 Courthouse Road, Fredericksburg, with a funeral to follow at 11 a.m. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 4, at Riverside Memorial Park, Jacksonville, Fla.
