Sorry for your loss, she was a great neighbor! Hard-working woman, fiesty soul who spoke her peace. Enjoyed our conversations! Missed her when she left the house and she will be missed again by many. Rest in peace Grannie!

Dear Larry, Sher, Carol, Jim, grandchildren and great grandchildren of Marge,
What a vibrant woman Marge was and just a true blessing to everyone. Her enthusiasm and sense of humor will be greatly missed. We have many fond memories of Marge from weddings to simple visits to the house and to her competitiveness playing pinochle. She was a classy person who adored her family. May she Rest In Peace and be united with her loved ones.
Our deepest sympathies,
Renee and Bruce Evans
