I sang with Marge while she was with my chorus(Queen Charlotte Chorus) she was a little firecracker and a nice lady. May your memories exceed your sorrow.

Marge was always enthusiastic and positive. She brought light to any situation and was well loved by all who knew her. She remained part of the Greater Richmond Chorus long after she was no longer singing. We will miss singing for her.

Had the pleasure of knowing Marge well when she sang with the Queen Charlotte Chorus. My sincere sympathy in the loss of your mother.

As another member of the Greater Richmond Chorus mentioned in speaking of Marge, Heaven has gained a new sparkplug! I have many fun memories of Marge. What a great, strong character! She'll be missed here on earth.
