Marge, you were blessed with a good long life. I want to say that's it been a privilege knowing you these past 46 years. You taught me so much at the credit union when I started at the 709 Midway address in St Joseph in 1975. If I did not have a lunch, you'd share yours. You were also a great baker. I will remember all the great memories and fun times that we had. Todd Marschke joined Heaven too this month. Maybe you can open a credit union up in Heaven. Heaven gained a beautiful soul but now you are with Robert. Rest in Peace. Prayers to her daughters and son in law and her two grandchildren and great grandchildren.
