Mrs. Lieser was a 1939 graduate of Lakewood High in Ohio and was the best mother and grandmother anyone could have. She met her husband Vern during World War II while he served in the Navy. Vern and Marge loved to travel, camp and seek out adventures with family and friends. Her father Harry A Sutton and husband Vern were partners and founders of Sutton Industrial Hardware at 3838 Prospect Ave in Cleveland, Ohio. Marge always had a vegetable garden in her yard where she loved to raise tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, radishes, green beans, cucumbers, squash and of course always had rhubarb in the spring. The loving care of her garden was only outdone by the love for her family and children.
She was devoted to saying the rosary and loved to watch the Mass on EWTN. Marge was a violinist in high school and the Cleveland Women's Orchestra, and had an interest in fashion and the arts. She was an excellent cook and family dinners were always an event of the first order, with guests often present.
