One jazzy lady, Margaret Mary Schwedler went to the Lord on May 14, 2012, Algoma, and was reunited with the love of her life "Looy". Marge was born June 25, 1925, in Algoma, to John and Matilda (Thayse) Stade. Marge graduated from the Algoma High School in 1943 and graduated from the Holy Family School of Nursing in 1946. She worked at the Algoma Memorial Hospital until it closed and then worked part time at the Kewaunee Health Care Center until the age of 72. Marge was so proud that her granddaughter choose to become a nurse to follow in her footsteps.
