Marge was born at the Galt Hospital in Lethbridge on January 2, 1935. She spent most of her childhood in Lethbridge and graduated from Lethbridge Collegiate Institute after which she attended Garbutt Business College. She then went on to work for the Lethbridge Court House as a clerk.
Marge loved to dance and met William, the love of her life, at a wedding they both were attending. They married and raised two sons on the Brandics farm just west of Taber. Marge loved her family, they were her world. Her love extended to all those she met, and she made many wonderful friendships through out her life, each one thinking they were her favorite.
Marge was a faithful member of the Catholic church and belonged to the Catholic Women's League for more than fifty years. She had an adventurous side and loved all the places that she got to see including a trip to Ontario and many to British Columbia. She was always up for something new.
Marge's passions in life were baking, cooking and gardening. Everyone got to sample her delicious fried chicken, cabbage rolls, apple strudel and buns when ever they dropped in to see her. Everyone was welcome in her home. Marge loved her gardens of fresh vegetables and fruit and more yummies came from there. Her flower gardens gave her so much joy and she loved to just sit amongst the flowers and smell their aroma. What most who knew her and will remember her for is how she cared for everyone and her service to all those in need.
Marge was one of a kind and will be miss by all.
A special thank you to all the staff on the fourth floor and in ICU at the Chinook Regional Hospital for giving such great care to Marge during her last few months of life.
