Marge knew what being a good friend encompassed. When she lived in Hasbrouck Heights, we got together for tea and laughed ourselves silly, I was her phone buddy daily when she moved to Lakewood, I will miss her voice and laughter.
We belonged to many church groups and together we ran Cornerstone for a year and a Corpus
Christi prayer group. She loved her job at Fairleigh Dickenson, mainly because she loved all the students who came into her office. Marge was instrumental in helping students who needed a friend to talk too. A student went into diabetic shock and Marge stayed with her until her Mother and the ambulance came. Marge prayed over her and consoled her. In Hasbrouck Hts. she gave clothing to families in need; all on her own and in privacy of her home.
Marge knew what it meant to be a Christian women and lived her life according to her faith. My heart is saddened to hear of her passing but she is home now and at peace.
