Marge was known by all at Starbuck's because she was so approachable, caring, compassionate, fun loving with a great sense of humor. Marge could talk with you on a wide range of topics, intelligently and was always inquisitive, always learning something new. Driven to continue her standing as an educated and accomplished women; going for her broker's license in quick order and accomplishing what younger may not. Marge was a marvel and we will all miss her as in the short time we got to be with her, we came to Love her. May God Bless You all at this time of great loss from your lives.
