I have such wonderful memories of my Aunt Marge. And actually of time spent with my Aunts, Uncles and cousins growing up. My Aunt Marge was a also great cook! Every Thanksgiving I still try to remake her turkey dressing. Gosh it seemed like there was never enough... but you can only stuff a turkey with so much and it was sooooo delicious, flavorful and moist. Aunt Marge used to babysit for me and I loved that I had my own steering wheel in her car so we could help each other drive ;) Another memory I have - Aunt Marge was always cleaning followed by several hands of solitaire and giggling with us kids. Aunt Marge used to take us shopping and into Ann Arbor frequently, which is a big deal for us Chelsea and Dexter kids. As I grew up spending a lot of time with Cindy, who was really more like a big sister and friend, we were always at each others house. Then when I was allowed to date, I could only go on a double date with Randy as my protector :) With either cousin, Aunt Marge was always offering advice and telling us to be safe. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to sit down with her recently at Joel and Evelyn's wedding. It was like no time had passed since we last spoke. Rest in Peace Aunt Marge. I love you and you will always be missed! xoxo

I remember what a wonderful and fun person Marge was. I lot of people don't know that I lived with Cindy and family back in 74. I had trouble with my home life and Marge opened up her house to me. I'll never forget that.
I know Marge is in a better place now we'll just have to wait to see her again.

We have enjoyed being next door neighbors to Marj these past 8 years. She was always kind to our young boys, shared lots of fun stories about the history of the neighborhood, and generously shared her perennials. I will remember her fondly whenever the iris blooms.

Cindy and Randy, my heart goes out to you both on the passing of your mother.
I will always remember as kids, how nice she was to me whenever I would come over to your house on Donovan Rd.
Joel, Kevin and Tim, I can imagine your grandma was very proud of you three.
She will always be holding you close and beaming down her love on all of you especially her sweet little Savanah.
