Being a lifetime member of a cooking club, Marge had a knack for cooking and enjoyed finding spicy new recipes. She loved all crafts, especially knitting and sewing.

Marge was always known for her beautiful garden, because she loved flowers so much. She was a Girl Scout leader, for her girls, all the way from Daisys to Cadets. She was also a life member of Waukesha’s VFW Auxiliary 721 and she worked for many years at Chapman’s Fashion Store.
