Some people leave their legacy in the form of a storied career, or in an interesting social life. Some will have a plaque hung in their honor in a school or hospital or government building. Marge’s legacy in engraved upon the hearts of her family – in whom she invested everything. We will forever carry the love, generosity, and loyalty she showed to us. We will strive to emulate her incredible work ethic, her deep faith and good nature. Her body has been relieved from its earthly binds, but her spirit lives because she poured it out for those she loved.
