Aunt Marge, you will be missed. Didn't get to see much of you after you & Uncle Tom moved to Streator. Mom & Dad would make the trip to visit you there. You are finally united again with Uncle Tom and your children. You lost them all so close together. I know Terry and your grandchildren looked after you after that. God just got another Angel. Hugs & kisses to you.

Love you Aunt Marge. What a blessing it was to have you in our life. You loved to laugh, especially with the crazy antics of your beloved son not to mention your nephew Mark. It was great to hear you laugh. Now you can be with your family. Hugs and kisses, Nathalie

We loved Marge a witty, funny, and sincere character. She can finally be with her children and live on in memories. Rest in peace Marge.
