My deepest condolences to everyone who knew Marge, she was a wonderful person. I have such good memories of garage sailing with her and Vicky and so enjoyed her 90th birthday party. She always had kind things to say about everyone and had such a positive, caring attitude. I will forever picture her in her sequined hat, smiling. Rest peacefully Marge, until we meet again.

Patrick and Vicky, my heart truly goes out to both of you and to Norris. I have fond memories of your mom and how she welcomed everyone into her home. She was a kind and loving lady with an enormous heart.

Marge was one of the most caring people I’ve ever met. She always had a big smile and a kind word. This world will be a little darker without her brightness in it. Rest In Peace my sweet Marge.
