argie was a wonderful person ..very generous and caring. I met Margie when I was in 7th grade and she in 6th at St. Alphonsus Grade School. We immediately became great friends. I remember walking home with her after school since she had to pass my house to get to hers. And then there was our high school days at St. Michaels High. We double dated for our Senior Prom.. what a fun time that was. After High School we had many good times together. We enjoyed going out on dinner dates with our husbands and visiting each others homes many times. We belonged to a club and were in plays together at the Athenaeum Theatre on Southport Ave.which brings back many fun time memories. Margie and Bill were always so good to my children. Infact, they called them Aunt and Uncle because they loved them both so very much. I will always cherish these memories of Margie and she will always have a special place in my heart. May she be at peace now and joined with her loving husband once again. God Bless her and her family. My prayers are with them all.
Love, Pat

Margie was the most generous and caring person I ever knew. We met in 7th grade at St. Alphonsus Grade school and remained friends throughout our lifetime. Iwill always have a special place in my heart for her. We shared many great memories together...doubled for our senior prom, were in stage plays together at the Athenaeum Theatre on Southport Ave., went on many dates together with our husbands and shared many meals and fun times. My children called her Aunt Margie since she was such a special person to them. We will always remember her in a very special way and she will remain in our hearts forever.
