I worked with Marge since she came to Southlake Village, and she was a wonderful lady. We love the way she had nicknames for some of us, her laugh was the best and her smile would just light up the room. Almost everyday after lunch she would sit on her recliner, and almost everyday before I left I would blow her a kiss and she would blow me one back. Marge was one of those people you will always remember, and she will be missed a great deal.

Marge was a wonderful aunt. She constantly had a smile for us and I will always remember her saying “while, I’ll be!”

Joyce, never got to meet your mom, but from the stores you’ve told about her and your life, she must have been one heck of a good mom. Plus, she raised a great daughter that we are proud to know. Also, we are sending our condolences to you and your family. Your friends in the hood, ❤️ Love, Dave and Leda
