  1. Colleen,
    So sorry about the loss of your beloved Grandma. It’s so hard when we lose those we’re so close to. Remember your happy times together and that will help sustain you and your family.
    God bless and take care.

  2. God be with you, Marge. You are such a special lady. I first met you when I started my exercise program at Pulmonary Rehab. Regardless of how ‘crummy’ you felt, you always had encouragement for the others. You certainly gave me inspiration to continue. Our friendship developed into something special – each of our group encouraging the other to ‘keep going’.

    It was time for you to leave us, however – sorrowful that may have been, but as you said recently – ‘you were getting very tired.’ You are now at peace, dear Marge, but your ‘spunk’ will continue to inspire us at Rehab. to continue like you would have wanted us to. Thanks for your friendship. I know you will look down on us and tell us all to ‘keep truckin.’ God be with you, Marge.

    Love – Kay Anderson

  3. Grandma,

I know you were ready to go be with god it’s the rest of us that weren’t ready to see you go. I think of you every time I do my usual jog by the Legacy. I hope you knew how much I loved you and how much you will be missed. I know your up in heaven looking down on me. Thank you for being who you are and for touching my life. I love you Gram

  4. I worked with Marge at Kodak Research Labs and found her to be a loving, caring wonderful friend. Her family meant a great deal to her and I wish them the very best.

  5. It was a pleasure to have know you.
    Your were the first to welcome us to Eagle Ridge Circle. I enjoyed our talks together.
    I have never met a person that was so kind.
    Thanks for all the cookies.
    Since you moved every day when we open or close our blinds we say Hi Marge or Goodnight
    Marge. We will miss you.
    You will be always in our Hearts.
    With all our Love
    Don & Char

  6. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time. I cannot begin to tell you the joy and inspiration I received from Marge. She may have been a little lady but she was loaded with life. She was the strongest person I’ve ever known. I am going to miss our Friday ‘ice cream’ socials after Pulmonary Rehab. I will always remember her. God Bless

  8. To a very special lady who touched my heart. May you rest in peace. To her family, may you be comforted, in knowing that your love one is with God.


  9. You will sorely be missed, Gramma. I feel sorry for things that shouldn’t
    be spoken of. But one thing I can say is that I truly pray that you forgave me for all of the aweful, and were proud of me for all of the accomplishments. Aiden and I love you, Gram.
    And to everyone else, I hope with each passing day the loss of Gram gets a little easier.
