As a resident of Martha Franks I meet Marj and Mike when they resided in a patio home. They were a very devoted couple. You never saw one without the other
I found time to stop by and visit them in healthcare when I could. I loved to talk with them about their life together. Marj loved to talk about the children, grands and great grands.

She will be remembered fondly by all who knew her. She always a beautiful smile for all she met.
