I was so sorry to learn of Marge's passing. As a young teacher at Yahara School, I admired her positive attitude and friendly demeanor. I always thought that I would like to be like Marge "when I grew up." What a lady, what a kind soul. With sympathy, Karen Kaminsky
MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO ALL OF MARGE'S CHILDREN AND FAMILIES. YOUR MOTHER, MARGE, AS WE ALL CALLED HER IN THE GRAND SQUARES CLUB WAS A WONDERFUL PESON. SHE ALWAYS HAD A SMILE ON HER FACE AND WAS A "DANCER". I REMEMBER HER DANCING THE DOUBLE HOP POLKA WITH BOB OUR ROUND DANCE CALLER. THEY MADE IT LOOK SO EASY. I TRIED IT BUT NO WAY COULD I GET THAT EXTRA HOP IN IT. BOTH WALLY AND RUSS WILL BE WAITING FOR HER AND SHE WILL BE WELCOMED WITH OPEN ARMS. GOD BE WITH YOU MARGE! PAT (MORGAN) LEONARD (FRIEND FROM GRAND SQUARES CLUB)
It was an honor and privilege to know Marge. We had many wonderful years at Yahara! And we had great times at TIGER and Thursday lunches! She loved talking abut her kids and grandkids! It is good to know that she is playing cards and dancing with Wally and Russ in heaven. She was loved and will be truly missed.
We have such wonderful memories of Marge and both of her husbands. We square danced with them. Marge could be ready to go dancing anytime. She was the classroom assistant for both of our children at Yahara school. Sorry we will not to attend her funeral. Mary and David Olson
Hello my name is Heidi Smith. I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. My mother was Ruth Hoffman and I'm trying to find family. I know that you are related to me. I don't know how else to find anyone, so I thought I would try here. I would appreciate if someone please call me 770-733-8918. I was actually looking up your mother's name on the day that she passed. I pray that Jesus comforts you all. Hope to hear from you soon. Heidi
Hold tight to memories for comfort, lean on your friends and family for strength, and always remember how much you are loved.
May God's perpetual light shine upon you Aunt Marge and grant peace to your family during this time of sorrow. From your loving niece and nephew, Doug and Beverly Walblay
