I am so saddened to learn of Marge's passing. What a wonderful next door neighbor she has been to me! Both Paul and she have been such a blessing to me over the years. They have been there for me through think and thin.

The love and devotion that Marge and Paul have shown to one another and to their family and friends serves as such a wonderful role model for us all- near perfection that we all should strive for each day of our lives.

The two of you are in my heart- both now and for always!

With love,

I became friends with Marge through our secretaries association. Many times I picked her up so we could ride together to the meetings and have a chance to visit and share personal things happening in our lives. She was a very caring person. I lost my sister in Nov. 2016 and my son in Sept. 2017 and Marge attended both funerals and I will never forget that. At most of the luncheons we had at Ventura, I would sit with Marge so we could have some personal conversation. I will miss in Peace, my friend.

Marge was a dear, sweet friend to all that knew her. As a member of the former Orando Chapter IAAP, I shared many fun times with her. After the chapter disbanded, Marge was responsible for the ladies gathering at Ventura, where she resided, on a regular basis to network and communicate with each other.

Sincerest expressions of sympathy are extended to Paul, her husband, and the family. RIP Marge.
