I want to share some good memories of Marge. I always enjoyed chatting with her and Carl whenever I met them at the Sweet Shoppe, etc. in St Paul. I enjoyed having Andrea as a student at Farwell School when she was playing in the band there. Was also glad to visit online with her several times. I hope to continue keeping in contact with her that way. Anna Mary Smith

I have so many wonderful memories I wouldn't know where to start, she was such an awesome person, loved her smile and especially her laugh, which she always had even if she didn't feel good. We had alot of fun working at Someone Special together, our birthday lunches, and many other outings. Her love for her family and friends made her so happy and proud, she had a smile for everyone in life. God received an Angel in Heaven when he took Marge home to be with him. May her smiles and love shine down on all of us every day. Prayers, love, hugs and goodness be with her family. Cherish all the wonderful times you shared with love and happiness over the years. God's Blessings to you all. Love, Velda
