Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. We camped at Marge and Deans pasture many years, on the ride to Ft. Madison Rodeo. They welcomed all. She will long be remembered.
My mother, Mary Tarry was Majorie's roommate at the Health Care Center, for awhile. They used to walk hand in hand, like little school girls. Mom passed at 91, also.
Take care and keep family close.
Thoughts Prayers to all at this time of your loss
Always a beautiful smile on her face. Will be missed I felt I had known her forever. RIP Aunt Marge
