    Marge trained me for my first job when I was 16, waitress at Turkey Run Inn. She was a tiny tornado, and I learned so much. She was smart and funny, with a big splash of sass! She will be missed. Prayers to all of you…💟

    When my brother, George and I would be clearing bolders and roots from the newly cleared land at the farm, we would be luncheon guests of Marge and Jim. Marge would fix the biggest bowl of mashed potatoes in the county along with other wonderful delights. Always hustling everywhere with a wonderful smile and cheery voice. Come to think about it, I don’t think I ever saw her in a bad mood or upset. Talk about a positive influence in our lives. Thank you Marge for what you brought to our lives. Now you can join your love, Jim again. You are both in our thoughts and prayers.
