    Nita, Devonne, Deanna and families –
    Sorry for you loss. I knew your mom from the bowling league over 15 years ago. We always had so much fun. The bowling wasn’t the best, but the friendship, and giggles were the best! One memory that stands out was when she told us she was going to Alabama! – she proceeded to tell us where she was stopping on the way to Fargo (to go to Alabama). We thought she meant the state, not the band! Oh my did we laugh. I will miss my friend. RIP Marge

    A dear friend, Marge was a fun person. She looked at the bright side. Condolences to all the family.

    Marge was a sassy and classy lady, I strongly agree! She served the students and staff at STMA for many years. This is where I got to know her when we worked together in the Jr High and Middle School office. She was a patient teacher, the grammar police, a STMA historian and we shared lots of fun and laughter. We worked for some interesting principals over the years!

    Marge was a wonderful mother and deeply devoted to her daughters and their families. She was very proud and just glowed when she spoke of them.

    I never could figure out how a little woman like Marge could love food and eat the way she did and never gain a pound!
    She will be greatly missed by her family and friends, but the stories and good times will never be forgotten and the love she showed us will long be remembered.
    Love ya Marge!

    Marge and I were roommates in Fargo on 8th st. with 4 or 5 other young women in about 1961. The memories aren’t complete any more. But it was a fine time.
