Livengood on May 24, 1946. Throughout life, Marge was an ardent supporter and faithful companion to her husband of 67 years with whom she raised three sons, welcomed three daughters-in-law to her family, and lovingly embraced eight grandchildren with care, nurturing, support, and enthusiasm. Marge is known to her family and friends as a woman with great dedication to her husband, family, and extended family. She was an active member of First Missionary Church. Marge is survived by her three children, Dr. James (Kathryn) Livengood of Zionsville, Ind., Reverend Gary (Carol) Livengood of New Haven and Greg (Ann) Livengood of Fort Wayne.
