Marge and Lee were such fixtures at Salem. Their generosity was gracious and heartfelt. We're no longer in Illinois, but can't think of Salem without remembering her.

I sat next to Marge in the Salem choir for years in the soprano section. She was always ready to offer help where needed (especially at my parents' 40th anniversary party!) and did so much for our church. Because of her, we have that beautiful kitchen, the equipment shed in honor of Lee, and our awesome choir robes. I always loved talking to her and sharing news about people we knew. And she rallied all of her friends to come to hear us when our local musical ensemble came to perform at Proctor. So blessed to have known her and I'll miss her!!

Marge and Lee were at our wedding 40 years ago at Salem. Always remember their help at Salem and Marge in the choir. She will be missed but we were all blessed to have had her presence.
