Our thoughts and prayers are with Marge and her family. She will always be remembered as a lovely lady and a wonderful and caring mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. We were fortunate to have known her as our special friend when her grandson Ryan married our daughter Janet. May all the wonderful memories of times shared with Marge bring comfort during this sad time.

I love you grandma! I wish you could be here to see us grow! She was a sweet woman who always had something to offer, including lasagna...a lot of it. She was one of the most giving and caring people I've ever known. I know you are with the Lord, and you are truly missed and loved by all of us. Tell grandpa I say hello!

My condolences to Joe and Margo and family and friends. I will always remember working for marge at the rest home and getting to know her family. I will remember when marge took me to the Saint Padre Pio Shrine in Cromwell Ct. She will be remembered for her loyalty to her friends and her strong faith in the lord.
