I was Marge's next door neighbor. Marge was a very friendly and out-going person. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

I first met Marge in Nov 2011 when my mother-in-law moved next door to her at Crimson Pointe. We talked many times over the years. She was always on the go and very upbeat about things except the Food Committee which seldom made the improvements she requested. She loved decorating for the various holidays and always talked about how good her family was to her. I will miss her.
