Marge and her late husband were past Jaycees and part of the Nixon Administration in DC. I will miss the history lessons they gave me about their visits with Nixon and BB Rebezo at Winter White House in Key Biscayne, FL. May you RIP and you will be missed.

Marge was a wonderful, open kind of person. Always "up". We had many wonderful times on our tennis teams, lunches afterward, tennis clinics and brunches on Thursday mornings when she could no longer play. She was my friend and I will miss her terribly.

I call her Grandma; even I’m not on her family tree, and maybe just meet her one or twice. But from the friendship as brother with her grandson -Phillip, I have learned a lot from her. My children know that now I missed a Grandma with warm smile and a great life. We are praying for her. Grandma, you will be missed, we love you

Due to the way families get dispersed across the country, I had relatively few opportunities to get to know Aunt Marge, but two of these stand out. In October 1967, I was a graduate student attending a conference in Washington, D.C., and I and a fellow student were rather suddenly told by our hotel that no further accommodations were available at student rates and we would have to move out immediately. Aunt Marge helped us out by providing an emergency place to crash, and even picked us up and dropped us off so we didn’t miss any of the conference. That night she and I talked for hours, catching up on many year’s worth of family events and remembrances. When my mother died after a long hospitalization following a fall in a snowy parking lot, our immediate family was in a state of shock for weeks. Somehow Aunt Marge managed to pull together a very touching eulogy for her sister that no one else could possibly have done at the time. I shall always remember her for that. William G. Lyon Ada, OK

Aunt Marge was a wonderfully spunky woman. Her smile would light up a room. She had a big heart and a great sense of humor. I always used to say...."When I grow up, I want to be just like Aunt Marge". She will be missed by those of us on earth, but I think right now she is having a grand reunion in Heaven!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Aunt Marge, my Mom's (Elva) sister was just the best lady. We always had such good laughs and hugs when we all got together at Mom's house. Of course, Uncle Pat always had the duck along and that brought some laughs also. What a loving couple they were - it made your heart happy to see them togehter. We will miss the happy greeting you always got when you called her. Heavenly peace to you Aunt Marge. You deserve it

I will miss Marge, the last of my father's sisters and brothers. We did not see each other very often but I always had a special feeling for her. It was often said we looked rather alike - to the extent that I was encouraged not to stand next to her in her wedding pictures. I was probably about 6 years old at the time. My condolences to her children and grandchildren.

I had the privilege of knowing Marge while attending family gatherings with Phillip Marshall. I was always very impressed with how she carried herself and always acted with class. Although I did not know her well, what a great role model she was to those who observed her life.

I barely knew my own grandmother before she passed and I would like to think though that she would have been very much like Mrs. Gorman, she was a lively and considerate women. She will be missed.
