According to her avowed faith, God Speed Marjorie Hery on your journey. We begin on earth and will return to it, next year, next century, next stop. Irish wakes are not known to be all that sad, except for the professional wailers of old, and you are 100% there. Really liked your white bread rolls; maybe somebody you taught might serve some up tomorrow or later in commemoration. Your sister's were OK, but that is not an option right now. God Speed to the bereaved as well.

Marge was a wonderful friend to my sister Mary Buswell. She was an amazing woman in her professional and personal life. Her cooking and baking were enjoyed by many. We have shared many good times with her, she was such an inspiration. My thoughts and prayers go out to her large family. I am sure that she left you with many memories and stories to share forever.

The world lost a special lady with Marge's passing, but we're guessing she's already played a game of cribbage with her beloved Lou. Our deepest sympathies.

Aunt Margie was kind, wise, generous and had room for everyone she loved and everything she enjoyed. She lived life to the fullest. I've always looked up to her and was amazed by what she was able to accomplish in her life. She never seemed to run out of energy or kind words. She has been an inspiration to me. I have nothing my fond memories of her. My deep condolences to my cousins and their families.
She will always be an angel.

Aunt Margie please accept my thanks for being such a great sister to Katherine. You were always there for her. You were always there for her children as well. Amongst the Rochon and Dean children you were always held in the highest esteem. We loved you like a second mother. When I was little we came to visit my brother and sister that were staying with you until we found a home after our father passed. There was a U.S Marine's fatigue hat that belonged to one of your children. I fell in love with it and you let me keep it. I will hold your memory dear. Love from your nephew. To my cousins I share your grief for your great loss.
