I will miss phoning Marge at Christmas Time (also her birthday time) to keep in touch with my very special friend. We worked together at Briggs Transportation in the mid 1960's and became lifelong friends. May our God of love and hope keep her in his loving arms forever.
Marge was a very special lady. She was intelligent, friendly, kind and greatly missed in the church and community. Her niece, Kristie Wheeler did a wonderful job representing the family at Marge's funeral. Her reminisces presentation at the funeral was beautiful. She tackled a big job when she cleaned out the apartment but with help from Marge's friends it was ready for the next occupant, thanks to Kristie's guidance.
Marge will be truly missed. We loved hearing her as liturgist. We will miss her kindness. Prayers and condolences to her family and friends
