The couple began farming and raising their family and have lived their entire life in Northwood. Marge also worked for Engen's Market, The Gleaner, and the Northwood Clinic. Her kind and friendly disposition endeared her to everyone. The joy and love of her life were her family, grandchildren, and most recently all the hugs and kisses from her great-grandchildren. Marge loved life and enjoyed visiting and sharing a cup of coffee and treats with family and friends. Her simple faith and trust in her loving God sustained her through many health issues.
