In 2000 Marge retired from the restaurant business to devote more time to her family. In her younger years, she loved to travel with her husband Pat. Most recently, she spent quality time with her family and close friends at home and out on the lake taking boat rides. Marge very much enjoyed time she spent with her dear friends whom she met for lunch and dinner dates, gambling trips to Michigan's various casinos, or even road trips up north to reminisce her childhood years. We the family would like to thank all of her friends who have cared for her during the past few months, stayed overnight, or even stopped by to visit and chat. You have helped to make these last few months both special and memorable for all. Lastly, contrary to popular belief she never dyed that beautiful head of red hair, which also had perfect silver highlights as she aged.
