Margaret "Marge" Calderone of Geneva Margaret "Marge" Calderone, 81, passed away peacefully in her sleep on July 11, 2013, at her home. She was born June 7, 1932 in Trenton, New Jersey where she met her soul mate, Carmen, of 60 years. Together they had two daughters, Margie (Calderone) Lesko and Mary (Calderone) Harmon. As a strong Christian and member of Christ Community Church, her selfless heart was committed to serving God as well as others. She enjoyed being a prayer counselor at the church to those who needed guidance and healing. Marge's kindness led her to prepare meals on multiple occasions for those who needed it the most and never hesitated to invite her neighbors over for dinner. Marge found joy in her card ministry, where she would write words of encouragement to over twenty people monthly. Marge will be deeply missed by her family. She is survived by her loving husband, Carmen; her two daughters, Margie and Mary; her four grandchildren, Jordan Lesko, Jenna, Jamie and Julianna Harmon; her siblings, Paul Nagy (Marianne), Louis Nagy (Linda), Ernie Nagy (John Woodcock) and several nieces and nephews. The family has decided on cremation, therefore there will be neither a viewing nor funeral service. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the family. Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
