Marge was always helpful and we enjoyed the discussions we had with her. Joe especially enjoyed the "spirited discussions" between Marge, her husband and his brother Richard. It was fun. She will be missed.

David Strawn

Aunt Marge was a wonderful aunt to Bobby and me. She was very smart and I always valued her opinions and advice. Aunt Marge believed in family and did everything she could to nurture and support her family. She was also committed to her faith and this showed in her kindness to others. I especially value the times she and Uncle Britt, Lynn, Barbara, Betsy and Maryellen came South to visit us in the Summer. I was always to glad to see them and we had wonderful times. Aunt Marge and Uncle Britt treated us like their own. I was very proud of her being my aunt. I share in your loss and mourn her passing. I am sure, however, that she will be with you the rest of your lives in the good memories you will have of her. My sincere condolences. David Strawn
