It makes the most sense this way.”The complete True Stories soundtrack will feature 23 songs from the acclaimed film, collected in one package in film sequence.

Margaret Rosalyn (Stier) Feldman died on June 8, 2017 in her home in Richmond, Virginia. She was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, Clarence Henry Feldman; grandson, Douglas Feldman; son-in-law, Michael McEvoy; parents, Stephen and Olivia (AmRhein) Stier; her siblings and their spouses: Matilda, Sr. Mary Catherine, Sr. Olivia Marie, Sr. Anna Marie, Joseph (infant), and Francis Stier (Florence); Christine Eder (Gilbert), Loretta Zoellner (John), Eleanor Peters (Bill), and Helen Hannigan (Jim). She is survived by her children Stephen Feldman (Judy), Dottie Klammer (Manny), Theresa Siefker (Bob), Mary Feldman, and Anne McEvoy (Michael “Reb”). Born on August 5, 1916 at Harris City, IN, she moved with her family to Greensburg at age three and lived there until 2006. She supported her husband in his hardware business, The Gamble Store, always ready to substitute if an employee was unable to work, to help out during busy seasons or sales, and to make pick-up or delivery trips to Indianapolis. She was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church, until she moved to Richmond where she attended St. Benedict Catholic Church. She sang in the choirs at both churches, as well as at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Okeechobee, FL, when she and Clarence wintered there. She loved God and spent many hours watching EWTN and praying for her family and her world. Some people called her the “rosary lady,” because she always kept rosaries in her purse to give to restless children during Mass. Others called her the “cross lady,” because she made beautiful ribbon-on-plastic-canvass crosses to give to various individuals and groups. Fun-loving and generous with her time, she enjoyed helping others and always had an open heart for friends, relatives, children, and strangers. In the 1950s, she became a licensed beautician, but rather than using her skills to make money, she fixed the hair of family, friends, and residents in nursing homes. She was a member of the Daughters of Isabella, St. Lawrence Ladies Auxiliary #100 Knights of St. John, the Red Cross, and the YMCA. As a Red Cross member, she organized volunteers for Decatur County Memorial Hospital to serve at the front desk, directing visitors to various locations, delivering flowers to patients’ rooms, etc. She loved her family dearly and went out of her way in so many ways to help them: reading mail daily to her blind sister, helping one daughter drive to California to begin a new job, driving to Virginia to deliver a piano to another daughter, helping out with new grandchildren, and always willing to take her sisters, who couldn’t drive, to appointments or family gatherings. Even in her last months, when she became bedridden, she had a ready smile and sparkly eyes for everyone who visited her. She rarely complained of pain, probably offering it up for the souls in Purgatory. At the death of a friend, she once wrote, “It’s so hard to lose someone you love and care about. Life doesn’t always deal us what we think is fair, but with God’s help we manage to get over the rough spots. Time will mend the hurt and dry the tears, but it is truly family, friends, neighbors, and even those we don’t know, who make the process go much more quickly. I want you to know that I care about you and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Lovingly, Margaret.” Family and friends will gather at 4:00 p.m. on Friday at the funeral home to pray the rosary. Visitation will follow the rosary until 8:00 p.m. at the Porter-Oliger-Pearson Funeral Home in Greensburg. Visitation will also be held from 9 – 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at the St. Mary’s Catholic Church. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. with Rev. John Meyer officiating. Interment will be held in the St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be given to St. Mary Catholic Church music program.
