Marge’s first job, at age 14 was at Woolworth’s. She was also employed at Reliance Electric and Harvest House. After many years of waitressing, she finally retired from Woolworth’s Restaurant and relocated to Tiffin in 2001.

She was a member of Holy Redeemer Church in Cleveland and St. Joseph Church and The Legion of Mary in Tiffin. Marge loved to travel to Las Vegas, Italy and Florida. She enjoyed bingo, Rummikube and coloring. Nothing gave her more joy than holding a new grandbaby and celebrating at family gatherings. Marge was humble, unselfish and wise. She lived to serve and love others and always looked for the best in people and situations. Marge was quick to forgive and forget, and always had a smile and kind word. She was devoted to The Lord and her Church.
