Margie & worked together at Safeway, she took me under her wing and we became fast friends..We weren’t that far apart in age, but Margie had a very nurturing & mothering effect on me & oh she was so funny, we went on a bus trip to Reno once & on the way home she shared some hilarious stories about her childhood, I’ve never laughed so hard.. I moved away for several years & we had great phone conversation & she loved when I would send her notes.. I will always remember her..

I was very sad to hear of Margie's passing.
I have so many memories from 58 years of close friendship with Ed and Marge.
We always had a lot of fun going out dancing, our trips to Lake Tahoe and Reno or just sitting on the patio talking, sharing and laughing.
I know that a huge empty space is left in the hearts of her family and friends.
May all be blessed and comforted with happy memories of being with Marge and all she did for those who knew her.
Rest in peace Marge.
You were a wonderful friend.
