I have many memories of both Andy and Marge growing up in Shenandoah. I knew her best for her love of playing golf on Thursday mornings with the ladies and playing in the Friday night couples group. I looked forward to her posts on FB . I couldn't believe that she followed FB in her 90's. I extend my sympathies to Gary and his sister. The family are in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear about Marge. She was such a nice ,friendly and loving woman! I loved playing bridge with her for many years! She was one of the best players I've ever played with. I first met her when Andy was still alive and had his barber shop and Marge was still working. I would wait on her a lot at City National bank over the years. She will be missed by many.
