I'm saddened by the passing of a remarkable lady. Marge loved Caledonia and was a wealth of information on the history and it's residents. Her spirit and energy was impressive. I will miss her. It was a pleasure to have known her.

Marge Wold was a wonderful lady and friend to all that knew her, I enjoyed golfing with her many years ago and seeing her at church every Sunday , she will be missed but never forgotten.

My sincere sympathy to the family. Marge was a wonderful, caring person and faithful member of Willow Creek. She was a great sports fan, and I always enjoyed talking with her about the Cubs. My thoughts are with the family.

I am thinking of the smiling personality that always seemed to be there. (Because I'm related?) In sincere sympathy, Keith McNair Ralsten.
