What a lovely, gracious woman Margie was. I am so sorry she has passed away. My memories of her stretch back to our days in the Bronx and end in Hillsdale, along with her dear husband, Bob,
children and mother. All wonderful. May Margie Rest In Peace.
May your memories of her give you strength and comfort.
With love and sympathy, Marie DeTitta
