Marguerite (Marge) Kromko, also known as Margaret, formerly of Throop, passed away peacefully on December 8, 2013, at her nephew's home in Indialantic, Florida. She was 97.

Marge was born on November 26, 1916, in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, and moved with family to Throop, Pennsylvania, at a young age. The oldest of four children, she graduated from Throop High School and then went to work in several war-related jobs in Connecticut, New York City and New Jersey, eventually returning to Throop. She worked for Eureka Printing Company as a machine operator for over 35 years, retiring in 1981. In retirement, she was a wonderful caregiver to her mother. Along with her sister, Pauline, Marge moved to Florida in their later years to be cared for by her nephew, John and his family.

In her younger days, Marge liked to travel with her friends throughout the U.S. As hobbies, she enjoyed reading and doing crossword puzzles throughout her life. She loved spending time with her family, especially her sisters and their families, her first cousins and her neighbors. She is truly missed.
