After her kids were grown, Marge joined Fred in opening their own
business, Lee’s Summit Lawnmower. She spent the next 20 years serving

Of all the things Marge enjoyed, spending time with her family was her
favorite.

My love to all of you wish I could be with you. I loved your Mom dearly as a kid.

I’ve known Marge since I was seventeen.She welcomed me as her friend and we had good talks and enjoyed singing together. Our lives became entwined again thru the marriage of our children. She loved her children so much and she truly loved her Fred. They are together again. I can see them smiling.
RIP Sweet Marge
