Marge's Obituary

Marguerite "Marge" Clark was tragically taken unexpectedly as a result of an accident on Monday, August 19, 2013 at age 76. She was born in Chicago on September 22, 1936 to the late Frank and Anne (Knell) Rundio.

She worked in the credit department of Sears until her retirement in 1986. Marge was united in marriage to Jerry Clark on September 2, 1978. Together they enjoyed traveling to many parts of the country in their RV. Marge was a people person. She enjoyed baking cookies, especially Christmas cookies with the grandkids, motorcycle riding, dancing and visits to Ho-Chunk; all the while, meeting new people. Most importantly, she was devoted to spending time with family and friends.

Marge will be deeply missed by her loving husband, Jerry; children: Christine (Harvey) Zimmer, Kenneth (Yia), Randy (Nancy), Steven, Greg (Terri), Eric (Janet) and Scott Comstock, Susan (Duane) Nettum, Traci (Anthony) Centofanti, Collin (Amber) Clark, and Keith (Roxanne) Comstock; 17 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; sister and brother, Joan Athans and Larry Rundio; many extended relatives; dear friends; and her beloved dog, Boots.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and siblings, Dorothy (Alex) Skil, Robert Rundio, and Ronald (Judy) Rundio.

A memorial service will be held at 3 pm on Saturday, August 24, 2013 at Cress Funeral Home, Stoughton with Father Randy Budnar officiating. Family will greet friends at the funeral home from 1 pm until the time of service.

A luncheon and continued celebration of Marge's life will follow at Banushi's Bar and Grill, (lower level), 800 Nygaard St. Stoughton.

In lieu of other expressions of sympathy donations may be made to the family for a future donation directed to Macular Degeneration Research.

Jerry, we have had the pleasure of your friendship since sometime in the late 90's, but somehow had not met Marge until very recently in Gillette, WY at Escapade. We are fortunate we were all there so we could get to meet her finally, get our SKP hugs.

Be assured you are in our thoughts during this difficult time.

Jerry and family, you have our condolences.

I'm glad I saw you in Gillette WY recently, and that we had the opportunity to exchange hugs. Remember too, the many times we crossed paths in the RV community.

Dear Marge,

You are more than a friend to me. You are someone to learn from, someone to respect and someone to look up to. How I look forward to your arrivals and your distinctive voice saying, " Hello, anybody home ?", from the entry. Through the years, I've enjoyed the closeness I feel that comes with knowing someone well. You open your home to Jim, Jake and myself and let us be a part of your family life, making pies and picking strawberries. You share all the enjoyment you get from it with your laughs.

A jewelry diva.

I Love You.

Grandma I have so many memories to share,
I wish that there were more.
So, here's a few to make you laugh, maybe even cry.

Do you remember the time you left me at American TV? oops! You forgot all about me!
Or can you count the number of gummies I snuck
from the bucket at the stop and shop?
How many times did you take me to the mud hole?
Far too many to even count.
How about those horses Grandma?
You and your crazy antics helped me make it through
the heat and pressure of Oklahoma horse shows.
You witnessed my wedding.
You held my only son.

Your time on earth was cut too short,
I'm guessing the good Lord needed you,
but Jesus, Mary, and Joseph Gram...
why'd you leave so soon!??!

I love you Grandma

Jerry & family- This is so shocking, sad & unexpected!
Marge wouldn't want everyone to dwell on the sadness, or the things we should of done or said, she would want everyone to remember the happy and fun times she shared with all. Life is short, and Marge truly lived a great full life- what grandma do you know that rides a motor cycle and did all the stuff she did!
Rest in peach Marge, someone else can be in charge!

Our time spent with Marge was during our the RV lifestyle we all lead together at NCL. Words to describe Marge would be such as Inspiration, determination, and independent. She showed us all how to get yourself up and moving regardless of your challenges. We enjoyed our times together with her and Jerry. We consider them both very dear friends and this saddens us deeply. Wish we could be there with you Jerry during this difficult time. Our prayers are with you and your family that she spoke of so very often. Your friends, Bri, Di & Ty

Aunt Marge had an amazing sense of humor and always made me laugh. She was a spit-fire lady with so much heart. I knew her as an exceptional mom, wife, aunt, and grandma. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers will continue with the family daily as I can't even imagine what you are going through. Love and happy memories...

I remember spending time with Uncle Jerry, Aunt Marge, Colin, and Traci when I was a young child at my great-grandma Sally's house. She was always so excited to see me when we hadn't seen each other for a while. I am so thankful that I got to see her twice within three months, including a week before she passed. Aunt Marge, I will miss you and your smile greatly. To Uncle Jerry, and all of your children, my thoughts and prayers are with you!

Jerry, Greg & Terry, Collin & family,

Ken and Kathy called me this morning and gave me the news of Marge's being hit by a vehicle when crossing the street. I was shocked and saddened - more so as I've been thinking about her and meaning to call over the last few weeks.

We put many miles on our walking sneakers over the past few winters. I will miss my walking and dancing partner.

Dick and I send our sympathies to you Jerry and all her family.

My mother in law was a wonderful mom. The kids and I always look forward to her wonderful big bucket of Christmas cookies. I also enjoyed those times when I get to give her manicures and pedis. We so very much miss you.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

My grandmother was an amazing woman. I have many memories with her that I will cherish forever. I will miss everything about her so very much.

Jerry and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Marge's passing. We will always think of her remarkable energy as she sprinted around the streets at NCL in Florida. We also admired her opinions and her eagerness to share them with others. She will be missed, she was quite a lady!
