Marge Cassel
1914 to 2010

Marge Cassel, a longtime resident of Old Santa Cruz Highway, passed away peacefully on Thursday morning, July 29, surrounded by her family. She was 96 years old.

A service was held August 2 at Oakwood Chapel in Santa Cruz. To honor Marge, a lifetime gardener, members of the Loma Prieta Club brought bouquets of flowers to the service.

Marge was born in the house her father built in Santa Rosa where she grew up. She lived in Palo Alto until her marriage to John Cassel. They became engaged on a camping trip to the Sierra Club campgrounds at Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite where they climbed Mt. Dana.

John and Marge were married in the Stanford Chapel. They built a house in Los Gatos where their three children were born.

John and Marge traveled a lot, but Marge was always happy to get home to her gardens.

Marge joined the Loma Prieta Club in 2003. She delighted club members with her handmade cards recognizing birthdays and other special events. As a lifelong bridge player, Marge joined the club’s bridge club where she graciously taught her partners and opponents how to become better players.

She will be missed by the community, the 55+ Club, and the Loma Prieta Club. She was a special lady, and we will miss her cheerful heart and good spirits.
