Marge was a very active member of St. William's Catholic Church, and will be remembered by all as a woman of great faith. She was active in the RCIA program, assisting those being welcomed into the Catholic Church. Marge also was a member of the Spirit Club at church. She was a "teacher at heart, who instilled a great intellectual curiosity into her children! She always was willing to learn something new, and in her later years embraced the new technology of computers!
She enjoyed playing board games, especially Scrabble and Tripoli, and also loved working crossword puzzles. She will be missed for her baking talents, and made the most delicious desserts! She was featured in the Janesville Gazette in 1980 for some of those treats! Her love of flowers extended to her beautiful gardens, and she also crocheted many beautiful pieces! Her greatest love was her family, and she was most committed as a wife, Mom, and Grandma.
