Marge was an absolute pillar of the community. She raised an amazing family and devoted so much of her life to her family and her faith. The entire community suffered a great loss with her passing. Our loss is certainly heaven's gain. What a beautiful moment it must have been when Marge came face to face with the Lord she so passionately served. Good and faithful servant she truly was. Prayers to her family.
