Dear Kelly, Patricia and friends of Marge\’s, I was shocked to hear that Marge had passed away. She was a person that you felt was just, Forever! What a wonderful woman and lady. I can see her wonderful eyes and lovely smile when we would meet up over the years. We never missed sending each other christmas cards over the past 30 years. She was always interested in our lives. She will be sorely missed. Hopefully she has met up with my mom, Joyce and they are having a great card game and lots of laughs! Love to all, susan
Dear Family & Friends, I\’m so sorry to hear about your dear Mother,Grandmother! She was so special to so many. I just remember her always with a big smile ready to have fun at anything she did! My mother Joyce was so fond of her! I can just see the two of them having a great game of cards and laughs! It is so hard to lose such a wonderful person and my thoughts and prayers are with you! Love Maureen Hawke
I was so sorry to read in the paper the passing of Marge. I met Marge when, as a college student, I worked at May Company. She really took me under her wing, as I was having many problems living at home with a mentally ill mother. I went on to become an airline stewardess with American Airlines, but still remained in touch over the years with occasional phone calls, notes, and Christmas cards. My husband had the opportunity to meet Marge at her 90th birthday party. Marge and May Co. became an extended family for me. I know she touched many lives. I will always remember her wonderful smile, her great laugh, her perfect sense of style and, of course, her caring nature. I can only imagine how difficult this time must be for you, but what a wonderful life she was able to live and share . . . and how special to have had her for 99 years. I am so sorry that I missed the service, but I was out of town attending a convention. With warmest regards, Karin Jones
