Some fond memories of Marge:

Her homemade peanut brittle always delivered holiday time. To this day whenever I see peanut brittle I think of Marge.

Her sewing projects being worked on at sewing club for her grandchildren.

Running out of thread or needing a color I didn’t have, Marge would always come to the rescue.

You would be sorry if you challenged her to a game of ping pong!

Always fun to be around and had a great sense of humor.

Marge was a kind, generous and special lady. Our sincere sympathy to the family.
