To their union were born their daughters Sally and Susan. Together they enjoyed traveling, snowmobiling and boating.
Later in life Marge lived with her daughter Sally in Romeo and Almont. Most recently Marge was one of the first residents at Wellbridge of Romeo where she made many close friends with whom she enjoyed some heated games of Uno in the evenings.
Marge and her Marge-isms were legendary. They were an inspiration to some, a comfort to many and a perspiration to a few. She will be remembered for her sharp wit and her love for her family.
Marge is survived by her daughters, Sally (Peter) Orlando of Almont and Susan (Wayne) Lutjens of Dryden; her grandchildren, Katelyn Lutjens and Ethan Lutjens both of Dryden; and her step-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Paul (Sue) Streeter of Clermont, FL and Mary Ellen Bower of Davenport.
