she must of been a vary strong and good hearted woman may she rest in peace
The best! Can anyone say more?
Margaret was the best friend I've ever had. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her.
To Matt and the rest of the family... I am so sorry for your loss, as someone who lost my parents a few years ago, your world will never be the same, but the sadness will eventually be overcome by all the fond memories of your mom that you have.
Matt, I had no idea that The Simpsons was based on your actual family. Thank you for what has turned out to be a loving tribute to your heritage, a comical relief for many of us from our daily rigors, and for the thought provoking storyline and commentary that you have brought us. You have given a bit of yourself for all of your fans, and we are all better off for it. Be blessed.
Rest in Peace, and enjoy eternity with your Homer.
This beautiful tribute telling the story of Margaret, is going around the country...it was so grand to read such a nice tribute telling how Margaret must of lived 'the American Dream'......she sounds like she was a wonderful person, sorry she is not with you but sounds like she touched many with her love.
I should have said where Cliff Murch and family are from, Lancer, Saskatchewan, Canada. He passed away in 2008.
Our family is sorry for your loss. Our Dad, Cliff Murch, was Margaret's cousin. His Mom was Rachel Vistness, sister to Ingeborg Wiggum. He and Margaret exchanged birthday phone calls, their birthdays were 2 days apart. He always enjoyed their visits--it was his grandsons who especially appreciated the Bart Simpson connection.
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
so sory for the loss,may your family be blessed by God.May he comfort you in your tme of need.....d
I'm so sorry for your loss. She'll be missed by all, but never forgotten... A memory is a keepsake of time that lives forever in the heart.
My Husband Michael have just finished viewing the Simpsons
this evening and futurama our family now grown were reared on these and the intelligent social commentary. All our comfort to you and your family on the loss of your dear Mother she will always be very proud of you. Mr and Mrs Rachel and Michael Ovens Dunedin New Zealand. xxxx
I have so many wonderful memories growing up as part of the Linfield second generation. . .My dad, Jean Maulbetsch,'42, was so fond of both your folks. He died a few years ago. . .and we lost another link to the great stories of Homer and Maggie from Linfield, Long Beach reunions, and countless visits through the years. My mom, Pat,in a care center in Seattle, asked me to express her sympathy as well, for the loss of such a delightful and beautiful woman.
I had the priviledge of spending the last 5 yrs of Margaret's life with her. She was the most amazing, smart, beautiful, funny incredible person I will ever know. I will cherish our friendship for all of my days. And, never stop missing her.
Thank you and Rest in Peace

The "Jim Conway" family wishes to send their condolences to the Groening family. Margaret and Homer traveled with the Conway's on many fishing trips to tropical areas while filming the "The Lucky Jim Adventure Show". We remember how Homer would jump in the warm waters with his underwater camera, chasing marlin and other tropical fish, while Margaret and the rest of us would sit on the boat, worried he would encounter shark! Margaret was a great wife and companion to Homer, and she always shared stories of her children. Truly a wonderful person, who will be very missed.
Remembering fond memories of those days with Margaret and Homer.
The Conway Family.
Margaret Ruth Groening is the reason Matt Groening is alive and because of that, The Simpsons was made. This show has helped me get through some of the toughest times in my life. Thank you for raising such a wonderful son. My prayers go out to Marge and the family.
Very sorry to hear of your loss. She appears to have lived a very happy and full life.
May your dear Margaret rest in peace. My greatest condoleances to all her family and dear ones.
So sorry for your loss. God bless, and deepest sympathies to your family.
A la familia Groening: Siento mucho su perdida. Que Dios les de fuerza en estos momentos dificiles.
May the love of God, friends and family carry you through your grief.
i am sorry for your family's loss my prayers are with them during this time.
As the story goes...my dad introduced your mother and father in Everett. My dad was involved in school teaching, the Red Cross water safety program and lived in Everett. His name was Harold Berentson and was about 6 years older than your parents. I have had a great time retelling this distant connection to my children who say "Without grandpa there would not have been The Simpsons". I'm sure you are missing your wonderful parents, just as I have missed mine. I wish I had been able to chat with my dad today so he could recall the story again. God Bless, Nancy Berentson Espinoza
My condolences on the loss of your mother.

Rest In Peace, thank you for the part you played in bringing us so much joy and laughter.
Rest in Peace and rejoice in the prescence of God.
Lady Simpson shall always live in our hearts and memories. This probably is the greatest gift a son can give to her mother.
I've always thought that my mother was the most patient, forgiving, and kindest person in the world. That's because I never assumed Bart's mom could be based on another real mom.
Margaret was a kind and consistent friend to my mother, especially so following my father Bill's passing. And she was kind and sweet to a twelve year old, awkward me, which was not very common for her generation. She is missed.
I enjoyed my many talks with my Aunt Margaret.
God Bless Margaret Ruth Groening
May God Bless and keep you guys through this year of grieve with love many sympathy goes out for you. i love this cartoon.
I'm deeply saddened of Mr. Groening's news but at the same time deeply astounded at how Mr. Groening found the way to connect us all to his family through this superb show. my condolences to the family, you are never alone, and all of my support and love to you and the show. THANK YOU FOREVER AND ALWAYS
Her part in bringing myself, family and friends many hours of happiness and laughter is sincerely appreciated.
With very sincere condolences,
My name is Mary Weggum Snorek. My dad, Per Weggum and Margaret Groening were first cousins. The last time we (the Minnesota Weggums) heard from any of you 'Washington' Wiggums, was when Arnold visited my dad where he lived in Keewatin, MN. Arnold is now the last of his generation. My (our) sympathies to you and your family. I remember hearing all about Margaret, Perry and Arnold when I was growing up. I always enjoyed looking through my Grandmaother's photo albums and remember seeing photos of all of your family. When the Simpson's came out, we were al very interested in the family connections with Chief Wiggum and so forth. I exchanged a few letters with Margaret over the years but not recently. Again, my sympathies to your family. Thank you for reading this and know you are always welcome to connect with me/us if you are ever wanting to do any family history. Prayers.
so sorry to hear about your mom past way but now she is with godnow someday we will all seee our love one again i love your show
Condolences to the Groening family and farewell to a wonderful lady who goes now on another journey
My sympathies. I didn't know her. Yet, in a way, I did. Nice to know she had the chance to see 'herself' on TV all these years.
May this family find comfort in the brilliant life this woman lived, the joy she created, and the legacy she leaves behind.
... We are all thankful for your great soul! You inspired a great son to write the. Best cartoon in history! ..
My condolences to Margaret's friends and family. There is comfort in prayer and in God's word. Psalms 55:22
Condolences go out to the whole Groening family. Must have been one amazing woman to inspire her child to create characters that delight millions. May memories of her comfort you at this time.
Very sweet remembrance of "Marge Simpson"
Thank you Margaret for being a friend to my Mom, Dale Caldwell.
I am heart-fully sorry for your loss of this lovely lady. I pray God grants her rest and peace and you solace and comfort.
We only got to know Margaret later in her life, as neighbors. She was a wonderful spirit and we will fondly remember her and cherish the time we spent with her.
Sending peaceful thoughts and hoping everyone retains happy memories.
bless her and you, sounded like a wonderful life to live.
You are the reason the world has so many laughs. Only a great mom like you could have a son who's soul focus is to bring smiles to the masses. While we may have never met just know how much we all feel like we know you through Matt's animation. You will be missed. Hugs to the whole family.
My thoughts go out to the family. 94 isn't a bad innings, but that doesn't mitigate the hurt you must be feeling - especially for someone who must have been a formative and inspirational influence in your lives. Stay awesome.
I was so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.
My condolences to the Groening family, but especially to my friend Mark. Your mom raised a good son in you as well. I know she was special to you.
You've provided happiness to so many people. RIP.
She is now forever immortalized by the history of Western animation.
A friend emailed the obit with the subject "Sad but Great" It is sad for you family members, but I hope you realize that it is great for us to see the wonderful family origin for all those names we've come to love.
I know you must be in a much better place now, because your life was filled with many treasures, like raising your children and seeing them blossom, especially Matt.
So sorry for your loss. Matt met my dear sweet mother when interviewing a piece on dogs in rest homes. He was very kind to her. I will never forget this. May we all have a grand reunion soon enough.
you will live on forever.....
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. The bible can be of some comfort at john 3:16
Growing up on the Simpsons I never knew you were the namesake for Marge. Even though I've never met you I am still touched. My condolences to you Matt and Family.
Rest in peace, and thanks for being the inspiration for the greatest mom character of all time.
Celebrating a life well lived.
You inspired something that has brought more joy than you could ever know. Congratulations on a life well-lived. You will live forever in Marge Simpson.
i used to watch the simpsons and still do marge will live in us for ever til we pass on -what did she die from to the son of marge read 23rd psalm ----JUDYMUNN@att.net
Thank you for making my childhood fun
My thoughts are with the entire family. Thank you Mrs. Groening for being an inspiration - not only to your son Matt, but to millions.
Thanks for being the inspiration for one of the greatest TV mothers ever.
Rest in peace Margaret, God Bless your family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family . We could never hope to afford you even a tenth of the joy that you have given to millions.
To inspire one of the most beloved characters on television, she must have been an even more beloved person in real life. My sympathies to her family and friends.
May Margaret's friends and family find comfort in their prayers (Phillipians 4:6,7) during this difficult time.
Our many thoughts and prayers for the family.
Dear Margaret Ruth Groening our gratitude to you for giving us Matt who shared you with us. You are still with us in Marge. Our heartfelt condolences to your family.
Your loving, caring humor has inspired us all. Thank you for sharing parts of your life with us.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
So sorry for your loss, Matt. She sounded like she had an exceptional life filled with the riches of love. Take care.
Indirectly thank you so much for shaping the TV show I grew and continue to grow up on. I wish all the best in this difficult time for the family.
Matt, my heart goes out to you.
May she rest in peace.
All my thoughts go to her loved ones.
You'll be missed, and thank you for nurturing your son and allowing him to bring such joy to billions:) You'll be drawn with five fingers;) Hang in there Matt.
Thanks for some of the greatest character ever created. Great to have been able to share some small part of your family through The Simpsons. Your mother will live on forever in reruns!
Matt, and family. Sorry for your loss. She must have been blessed, for she blessed us all with one of the world's most renowned cartoonists today.
"May tender memories soften your grief,
May fond recollection bring you relief,
And may you find comfort and peace in the thought
Of the joy that knowing your loved one brought...
For time and space can never divide
Or keep your loved one from your side.
When memory paints in colors true,
the happy hours that belonged to you."
One of the best tributes to the "Marge Simpson" Character was one Halloween when my own mother dressed up as "Marge", using ping pong balls for the eyes, and a tall bunch of blue deyed cotton for the hair. She was already a little yellow. Thanks for the memories! I'll try and find the photos, but this was probably 20 years ago!
You inspired so many great things. Thank you for raising Matt to be a fine man. There is no better job a woman can do.
Thanks for everything. From your family to mine I appreciate all that you and your family has done
What a shame. She was a delightful woman. I hope one of the grandchildren got that beautiful blue hair. It would be a shame if her lovely features were no passed down to someone in the family.
I came to know you thru a cartoon series..who would have thought! And I cam to love you as mother, daughter,sister,friend and wife. Oh my goodness. Your spirit is huge! You live on forever. My warmest thoughts of comfort to your family during this most difficult time.
I never knew you but thank you for being the inspiration to the greatest mother on Television. We will miss the original Marge Simpson.
A mother is a very special person in a child's life, and no matter how old the child gets they will ALWAYS need their moms advice, guidance and love. Rest now sweet mother.
RIP, thanks for bringing so much joy into the world!
Thank you Matt for sharing your family with us all.
My most sincere and heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Groening's family. Though I'm sure many of us who are signing this never met her, we have been beneficiaries of her influence. My prayers are with the you all during this time.
To Matt and the rest of the Groening family,
May you find peace knowing that your mother had such a long, fruitful life and was blessed with a loving family and friends. May she rest in eternal peace and my condolences go out to the Groening family during this time of grief.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs. Groening's family. Matt's The Simpsons cartoon and program touched me and also taught me a lot during my teen and early adult life... You will forever be remembered...
Thank you, Mrs. Groening, for your family. My condolences to the Groenings.
Deepest sympathies to the Groening family. I am very saddened to hear this news, but please celebrate the life and the memories of Margaret. Matt you will be in my prayers. Again, deepest sympathies from Ontario, Canada.
your memory will be forever in the hearts of your family and in the fans of the Simpson's Rest In Peace
RIP Margaret... you may have been born a Wiggum, and married a Groening, but you died a Simpson.
My sincere condolences to her family. This is a final goodbye to a person who inspired so many childhood memories of mine. I've watched the show since I was 5 and it has been an honor to get to know this family through the Simpsons. May 'Marge' R.I.P for she has worked hard in getting into people's hearts for many years.
So sorry for your loss, what a wonderful woman!
Peace be with you in the great beyond. What an inspiration you have been to many. Thank you for your son who makes us laugh. Rest in Peace!!!
Condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Groening and her daughter Patty, who left the world a few short months ago to prepare her mother for her current journey.
That beautiful smile says so much. Best mother ever! Heartfelt condolences to the Groenings.
Thank you for your contribution (Matt) to the best American Comedy Cartoon.
Hope that the family finds peace in this great time. She is in a better place, the memories of her love and life shall keep you for the rest of your days.
Thank you, for everything that you have given us.
Though we never met, like most in the world we saw a glimpse of you perhaps perfect or imperfect through the eyes of someone who loved you dearly. Your memory lives on. May you rest in peace!
My sympathies to the entire family. Your son's show was one of the few things that continued to bring joy and laughter into our lives after my husband and father to our three children was killed by a drunk driver. It was the 15th anniversary of his death on April 22. May you rest in peace and may the family know your legacy lives on through them.
My sympathies and prayers to the Groening family. A part of Margaret and family will live forever in The Simpsons. God Bless Margaret.
Bye, Bye "Marge" you were a great role model for all. RIP
Crazy to find out you were the inspiration of the simpsons!
Thank you for being a huge part of your son's immense creativity. So many people are grateful for your inspirational contributions, and you will be sorely missed. May you and Homer rest in peace.
Lisa, I'm so sorry about your mom. My sympathies. xo Amy
Thank you for being the precurson of a generation full of happiness, the love for your family will be felt in generations to come.
Margaret's love of laughter and devotion to family ultimately inspired laughter in millions. She will be missed, but remembered forever in the kind words and deeds of Marge Simpson. She deserves a statue at Linfield College.
I have tears in my eyes. I'm a 53 year old man, have watched the Simpsons since the begining and didn't know Margaret. I know Marge. The caring loving, forgiving, saint of a woman that holds her family together. The woman that loves her husband and son despite all their faults. Thank you for your inspiration. I'm sure you were an absolutely wonderful woman.
RIP Marge, thank you for what you created. Thoughts to your family and friends at this sad time.
Margaret, you raised a son who has brought joy to millions through his writing. I can think of no better memorial for an English teacher. Well done, thank you and RIP.
RIP Mrs. Groening. My condolences to the entire Groening family.
What a wonderful smile. Hope the joy of happy memories carry you through this grieving process.
My sincere condolences to the entire family I know she will be greatly missed, I know I missed seeing her on her weekly visits to the Fish house where I waited on her nearly every week for years... She was very kind & generous to all of us girls there. She is missed by all that she came in contact with.
Mark, Matt, Lisa and Maggie,
Probably only Mark might remember me. Our families were friends because our parents went to Linfield together and settled near each other in Portland. I have many fun memories of Margaret and Homer and fun gatherings at Long Beach and other places. I last saw Margaret about 12 years ago and we had a great talk catching up. She was a very special person and I know how much you will miss her. Blessings to you all!
Linda Sanderman, Portland
Thank you for giving the world such sweet and funny memories. Matt gave us a chance to get to know you and your family every week. You will be missed.
R.I.P. DEAR... TO THE FAMILY, SORRY FOR YOUT LOSS... PEACE
Thank you for raising a son that changed the world. My deepest condolences to the family.
beautiful picture....nice smile... didn't really know you but felt close thru watching the show.....
Marge I did not know you personally but because of your son I feel I've know you all my life. Now that you have been reunited with Homer he can continue to make you laugh. Bless you.
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
RIP Margaret. Thank you for your inspiration and condolences to the Groening family.
As a life-long Simpsons fan, I could never thank you enough for the obviously loving and creative household that nurtured your son Matt. Rest in peace, Mrs. Groening, and thank you.
Though I didn't know you, I knew of you and I wish to send my condolences to the entire Groening family. Thank you for inspiring a great T.V. mom who is my inspiration, my laughter and my philosophy. Cheers to your life and may you rest in peace, and blessings to you for creating Matt who created my true joy and belief in the power of the t.v. cartoon forever!
My Mom was good friends with your friend Mary Tooze. We will miss you.
Thank you for being a part of everyones life .
Condolences for the family to the Groening Family
It was wonderful knowing you, Marge.
Haven't seen you since I worked at the restaurant, sad to see you go. Rest in peace.
Your son is the coolest! Thanks for raising him and ultimately leaving mark on my childhood.
I have a pair of cardinals that I have named Homer and Marge. I love them. Peace to all of you. Pam in Minnesota
I have never met Margaret nor any of the Groenings, but I can only imagine the inspiring and nuturing childhood that Matt and his siblings had which led to the creation of such an amazing series. My son was a baby when the series came out, and we both still watch The Simpsons...RIP Ms. Margaret.
I hope you know the impact you have made on this world by creating such a talented son and nurturing his abilities. I can safely say, the world loves you. We've never met but, my heart goes out to the family. I lost my sweetheart just 7 months ago. I promise, the pain does ease up just a little each day. Your whole family is surrounded by love and well-wishers.
My sympathies and prayers to the Groening family. A part of Margaret and family will live forever in The Simpsons. Thank you for your legacy.
we will miss you I the show every day
My condolences to the Groening family. Rest in Peace Mrs. Groening.
Thank you for marrying for laughter. Thank you for your children. Thank you for your son, who has kept me laughing and thinking for most of my life.
RIP. You will be missed. Thank you for your inspirations. May God Bless your family.
You're amazing and will be missed ?
Thanks for your gift Margaret. Sorry for your loss Groenings.
Mrage was such a great person/character; Margaret Ruth must have been a even greater person.
I'm sure you were the inspiration for many of the works that have been there for me as I grew up. That is only one frame of reference for your life. I'm sure you were an inspiration to them in every aspect of your being, and in that, I know that you'll be missed. Condolences for the family.
Thank you, Margaret, for not only being the inspiration for the lady I want to be when I grow up but also for being the mother of a guy who brought so much joy to the world. You will be missed.
Mrs. Groening, Thank you for the joy that you brought to my family and especially to my mother. You are missed.
Thank you. You made a difference in peoples lives and that is what counts the most in the world.
Margaret probably never expected to have this type of fame. Good people always have the best stories. You will not be missed, you will be celebrated. Margaret, safe travels to your eternal sunshine.
Rest In Peace Ms. Groening. From watching the Simpsons since childhood, I can tell you were the puzzle piece that held the whole family together.
We miss you, but are sustained by your gift of a lifetime of precious memories. You and I didn't make it to Vista Springs, but I promise to stop by and hoist one to the good old days!
To Mark, Matt, Lisa, and "Little Maggie," we are so very sorry for you on the tremendous losses of Margaret and Patty. We are here for you, as always.
Betty and John
Thank you for your inspiration and your dedicated love to your family. My prayers are with you and the Groening family.
Rest In Peace & may "The Simpsons" live on forever. ~ Stan & Cindy
Little did you know you'd end up being a cultural hero. Sympathies to your family.
You will be missed. May you rest in peace always with the Lord. My sympathies to the family at this difficult time
Obviously, I never met Margaret. But thanks to the life that she and Homer built, and the son and family that they produced, and the vivid, wonderful, funny and sweet Simpson family that son created, I feel like I knew her, and I mourn her loss. My condolences to the entire Groening family. And my thanks for the joy, humor and wisdom that this real-life family has transmitted for so many years through their animated counterparts.
Thank you for your inspiration, Mrs. Groening. Rest in Peace.
My heartfelt condolences to the Groening Family. Without Margaret and Homer there would be no Matt (or his well-named siblings) and no Simpsons.
Because of the Groenings, the world is a better (and funnier) place.
Rest well, Margaret.
Thank you. May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.
You have my deepest sympathy. May good memories provide solace for your family during this challenging time and may God provide you with the assurance that you will see your loved one again in Paradise. (John 17:3)
You raised millions of families across the world. RIP
I'm sorry to hear about your passing but at least you can be proud of your family. Also one child who will have you immortalized forever as Marge Simpson, who was a second mother to us all. Along with your husband Homer.
You'll never be forgotten and hopefully your legacy will live on many many years.
Also to Matt, and your siblings, my deepest sympathies to you and all your children(s).

Very sad loss , many happy nights watching your sons talents thank u marge groening(Simpson ! )
Fate brought you together. Love made you a family. The light from your love spanned the globe. Joy to the world.
We are so sorry for your loss, Groening family. Marge was an inspiration for we mothers in Oregon, and around the world. I was so touched reading her obituary - she had a full and beautiful life, abundant with love. She and her husband-that-made-her-laugh's legacy lives on in her children, grandchildren, and generations to come...and in her millions of adoring fans. Thank you for sharing her with the world.
So sorry. you will be remembered forever
I saw Margaret's obituary posted on Reddit.com. Reading it really touched a nerve. While I don't know the family personally, and never met Margaret before in my life, and while it saddens me to see any good person pass on, I can only therefore empathize so much with the loss. However when you realize that this woman was the inspiration behind Marge Simpson, a character that myself and millions of people definitely "know", it takes on a new meaning. Marge, you lived a long and what I hope was a great life with a large and I'm sure a loving family, which is more than many people who ever lived on this planet could ever say. You were very lucky and gifted. Condolences to the family.
The world is a happier place because of you. My sincere condolences to the Groening family. Through Matt's work, you were the mom to all of us who still remain children at heart. May you rest in peace, Marge.
She is a angel in heaven watching over all. I love the Simpson.
Thank you for the joy you brought to the world!
My deepest condolences for the loss of your beloved mother. Please take comfort in the fact that her legacy lives on in the iconic character her son created. May peace envelop your family at this difficult time.
A remarkable woman who will never be forgotten as she touched more lives than she ever thought possible. Please know that you and your family will be in our hearts and prayers.
Much love for you guys. Thanks, Margaret.
The original Marge Simpson was a beautiful woman! Thanks to her & Homer for creating THE SIMPSONS' creator, Matt! He has brought much merriment to us all! My thoughts are with him & the rest of the family.
R.I.P. Mrs Groening, You will always be loved and remembered.. Thanks you for all the laughs.. May God Bless You and your Family.
I watch the Simpsons religiously! I thank Matt and his family for giving us joy and laughter. May his mother rest in peace along with her Homer up above.

Our warmest thoughts are with the Groening family at this time. My father, Bill Bentson, went to school with Margaret's husband, Homer, in Salem. Like Homer, he was an Eagle Scout and helped build Camp Pioneer. After Dad died, last November, also aged 94, we found photos of the group who did that work. These might include Homer.
Thinking of the Groening family, at this time of their loss. My father, Bill Bentson, attended school in Salem with Margaret's husband, Homer. Like Homer, Dad was an Eagle Scout and helped with the construction of Camp Pioneer.
Rest in Peace, Marge. And my deepest sympathies to Matt, and all of the Groening family, and all those involved with the Simpsons. Matt your creation of the Simpsons has brought me immeasurable joy.
you will be forever rembered
A beautiful lady and rich source of inspiration and light for her son to share with us all through laughter. Love and Prayers.

You were a favorite "Mom".
With fond memories I bit you a sentiment from Horatio:
"Good night sweet princess. May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest".
Although I didn't know you, you looked like a beautiful woman and person, and I'm glad you had a long and profound life. May your soul rest in peace forever.
You gave birth to someone who changed the world with their humor. Thank you!
Bless you to the Groening family. I just hope that Bart and Lisa are taking it all well.

what a lovely obituary. much love to her family, and gratitude to her for bringing so much laughter and joy into the world through her children, most notably through matt. the world owes mrs. groening a debt, and i hope for now it can be paid through grace and peace to her family.
To the Groening Family: I'm so sorry for your loss and hope you can all find peace.
Margaret, I never got a chance to meet you. But through your family you brought much joy into the world. Thanks for being you!
RIP, a beautiful woman and clearly a loving wife and mother.
Rest in Peace.
You gave the world much joy through your son Matt. You were, in a way, a Mom to us all.
My deepest sympathies to the Groening family. Even though I did not know Margaret, her loveliness shines though in this image. Your family will be remembered by many in the world with smiles and joy.
While I never knew her, I'm really thankful that Margaret married the man who made her laugh the most. Wise choice. Her Son's work has made me laugh thousands of times. Rest in peace, Ma'am. I hope your family will accept my condolences. I can tell you were well loved by all your children.
I never had the pleasure of being acquainted with anyone in your family, but your son's talents have drastically altered my life and perception of the universe. It is thanks to you and your raising of an incredibly talented man that this happened, so i feel i must thank you for everything you made possible. You were deeply loved, and will be dearly missed.
Mrs. Groening was a dear sweet lady.
Everyday I served her while working @ Strohecker's years ago, she always offered a smile, and friendly conversation. Mrs. Groening, (out of respect, I could NEVER call her Marge),
had nothing but praise and excitement for all of her kids and just loved to talk about them when asked.
I feel fortunate to have had the pleasure of meeting such a kind spirit, she will be missed.
My sympathies go out to the family in this difficult time.
Margaret was a beautiful woman and great mother.
the mother she was for this small family became the mother for many Generations; and she will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace Margaret
Bless you, what a wonderful life.
You left a legacy. My family has a new sense of humor that we enjoy and laugh together because of the legacy you have brought to this world. You will be missed.
Your legacy means the world to many people.
I wish your family the best.
RIP Margaret, i didn´t know you but I´m sure you bring so much peace and love to this world.
My sincerest condolences to the family. My heart goes out for your loss, but the light that she brought to the world will never be extinguished
My deepest sympathies to the Groening family.
Margaret and Homer kept in touch with my mother, Inez Knight, after leaving the Westmoreland neighborhood where they met.Their kindness was much appreciated.
So sorry for your families loss. Thoughts are with your family.
Although I disnt know her any life that makes a difference..provokes people to do better..and laugh is a great one indeed.
My thoughts go out to the family, and I wish them peace in their hearts to combat their loss.
From your former next-door neighbor, my condolences to the Groening kids on the loss of your mother. I wish I could forward her obit to my mom, but she herself died in unexpectedly in February after a brief hospitalization. Sad times. Best wishes.
From another "Simpsons" fan,
She made this world a better place! And her legacy as "Marge" will live forever. Matt Groening has created such a loving depiction of her! You will live on in our hearts Marge "Simpson."
Your mom became everyone's mom Matt-I am so sorry for your loss.
Margaret you have left a special place in my heart forever as I treasure the many hours I had the good fortune of being able to spend with you over the years as a caregiver from Visiting Angels. May your spirit fly free up there in the unknowns as you connect with Homer, your mom & dad & Patty. Sincerely,Dena Sahli
RIP to a woman who helped bring much needed joy and laughter into the world. I didn't know you but I sure appreciate you.
