Born in Burlington, Iowa, Marge was the daughter of the late Albert F. and Esther (Breuer) Koelling. She graduated from nursing school at Deaconess Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. She practiced there as a Registered Nurse until her family moved to Cincinnati, Ohio. Subsequent moves included Livonia, Michigan and Cherry Hill, New Jersey before settling in Delaware in 1970. She was soon employed by Wilmington Hospital where she worked until she retired in the mid-1990's. She had a passion for cooking and, for many years, also worked at Creative Cooking (later called Kitchen Kapers) and ran a small catering business. In 2003, she began working with her daughter-in-law at Mealey Funeral Home as a hostess and secretary, retiring from there on September 30th.
Marge loved a party and was happiest when surrounded by family and friends. Her husband, Merwyn "Merv" Glandon, predeceased her in 1976. Two brothers, Don and Jim Koelling, also predeceased her. She will be dearly missed by her sons and daughters-in-law, Todd and Lori of Wilmington, Delaware and Mark and Maureen of Virginia Beach, Virginia; and her grandsons, who were the love of her life, Alex and his wife, Marjorie, Nick, Henry and Sam. Also surviving is her sister, Betty Lewis of Pleasant Hill, Tennessee; her brothers, Bob Koelling and John Koelling and his wife, Nonie both of Eugene, Oregon; and a host of nieces and nephews.
