Marge is a member of the Church of God and attended Church faithfully. Marge had God first and serving God was the absolute joy of her life, and everyone around her knew it. As a Pastor’s wife from 1976 - 1991, she helped establish a Church of God congregation in Greencastle, PA. She enjoyed going to Church Camp Meetings, helping with the Camp Meeting Book Store, and was instrumental in the Kingdom of God for many years with the gift of helps. Marge loved to laugh, loved to shop and shop some more, and could not turn down anything that was on sale. She was a loving wife, mother, grand-mother and great-grand-mother, and she enjoyed spending time and talking with her family!
