By: Representative Mayo
A RESOLUTION COMMENDING THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF MARGARET ANN FRIDELL BINZ AND EXPRESSING DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS UPON HER PASSING.
WHEREAS, Margaret Ann Fridell Binz, born February 2, 1944, in Helena, Arkansas, the daughter of Addie Margaret Fridell and the late Joseph Franklin Fridell, departed this earthly life on Monday, March 20, 2006, to enter into rest, causing great sorrow and loss to her family and friends; and
WHEREAS, Mrs. Binz, like many Mississippians, led a life committed to caring for her family, home and neighbors, lending a helping hand wherever needed in an unselfish, giving and loving manner that serves as an example for all; and
WHEREAS, after a courageous bout with Lou Gehrig's disease, which incapacitated her in many ways, Mrs. Binz demonstrated the selfless nature that was the essence of her existence on this earth; and
WHEREAS, continuing to care more for her family and loved ones than herself, she exemplified Christ's spirit of compassion and love by commending her spirit into God's hands; and
WHEREAS, ever mindful that "to everything there is a season, and time to every purpose under the heavens," Mrs. Binz's life was marked by loving and being loved by those who will continue to cherish the legacy of her memory: husband, Larry Binz; mother, Addie Margaret Fridell; brothers, Joseph Franklin Fridell, Jr., and Tommy Fridell; faithful caretaker, Betty Newell; and a host of other relatives and friends; and
WHEREAS, it is the policy of the House of Representatives to commend the life of such an amazing and courageous individual as Mrs. Binz:
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI, That we do hereby commend the life and legacy of Margaret Ann Fridell Binz and express deepest sympathy to her family and friends upon her passing.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That copies of this resolution be furnished to the family of Margaret Ann Fridell Binz and to the members of the Capitol Press Corps.
