Our deepest condolences to Howard and family and other family members on your loss. Marge was a respected teacher and had the welfare of her students foremost in her mind. My children have many good memories of her.
My husband taught with her at St.henrys and we became good friends.
In July we had a nice visit with her recalling past events.
Rest In Peace.
Olga Yachyshen and family
