Marge lived most of her life in Susquehanna. She was a 1946 graduate of Laurel Hill Academy and was employed by Security Mutual and the Susquehanna Community School District until her retirement. Marge was very active in her Community and Church.

Our mother was known to send cards to many people. Very rarely did she miss sending a card to someone for their birthday, holiday, etc., or just to let them know that she was thinking of them.

The family would like to thank Dr. P. Patel and the Staff at Barnes Kasson SNF for the care given to our mother for the short time that she was there.

Marge was a lifelong member of St. John's the Evangelist Church in Susquehanna.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11:30am on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at St. John's Church, Susquehanna, PA, with Rev. David Cramer officiating. The family will receive friends at Hennessey's Funeral Home, 747 Jackson Avenue, Susquehanna, PA on Wednesday from 9:00am to 11:00am.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made in Marge's name to: St. John's Church, 15 East Church Street, Susquehanna, PA 18847; or SNF Activities Fund, 2872 Turnpike Street, Susquehanna, PA 18847.

But more important, to honor our mother, send a card or two to someone you haven't seen or talked to in a while to brighten up their day, because that is how people felt when they received one of Mom's cards.
