Margie was born on March, 27, 1927, in Amarillo to Maximino and Guillermina Tenorio. She was raised in Amarillo with her brothers Eugene, Paul Max, Alex, Santos and Henry and sisters Geneva and Caele. In her early years, Margie owned a restaurant in Hereford, La Copa Cabana, which is where she and E.P. met. Margie always said that she won E.P. over with her cooking. E.P. was born Sept. 8, 1935, in Uvalde to Esther and Reymundo Flores. He was raised in Uvalde along with his brothers Elpidio, Reynaldo, Reymundo and Armando and sister Delia. E.P. served in the U.S. Navy before moving to Hereford, where he met Margie. They soon married, and enjoyed a full life together.
Margie was a hardworking, energetic and spiritual woman. She was very involved at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church and never missed a Sunday. Margie was also a hard worker and worked for Heath’s Furniture Store and Center City Furniture Store in Amarillo for many years. She had an infectious laugh that was always present, especially when E.P. was around.
E.P. was a good man that loved his family, and brought constant laughter and happiness to those around him. He was always telling jokes, dancing and making those around him laugh. He made friends with everyone he came into contact with and never knew a stranger. E.P. also owned his own barber shop in Amarillo for many years.
The couple was preceded in death by their parents, several brothers and sisters, a son Gilbert and daughter Prestina and several grandchildren.
