Margaret enjoyed many years working at Shop Rite of Lincoln Park where she easily made many life-long friends until a diagnosis of throat cancer finally slowed her tempo at age 78. Marge loved visiting her boys, Jeff in the Jersey Mountains of Vernon and Russel, at the Jersey Shore in Bayville. Marge made friends everywhere she went, including her months of chemo and radiation at Morristown Medical Center where it was common to hear "Hey Marge" echoed from across the halls! Marge was wise, quick-witted and a master of all games. Marge's memory and will to survive will be remembered, treasured and honored by her family and friends. Those who knew her could not help but love her. A celebration of her love and life, will be planned for a later date.
To My Peggy," I love you too, Peg, sweet dreams".
