    We knew Marge both from her many years as a member of the Sacred Heart family and as “Aunt Marge” to our friends, the Magees from Naperville.   She was always fun, vibrant, and full of life, a delight to be around, quick with a story…and a compliment.


    Marge will be sorely missed by her “natural” family and by her Sacred Heart family.   Our prayers are with her and all those who loved her.


    Mark and Sue Quinn

    I met Marge when we worked together for two years in the SXU Renaissance Academy office.  We became friends and often played dominoes.   I will miss her.   She was a wonderful lady.   Jean juscius
