Brooks, and together, they had a family of five children.

While in Glen Ellyn, she was involved with fundraising for Central DuPage Hospital, Questers and Reliquarians antique clubs, and Daughters of the King at St. Marks Church. Marge also enjoyed doing cross stitch and floss needlework, painting and writing letters to the editor! Her way with words and curious sense of humor served her well. She always enjoyed a good card game, watching "her" Green Bay Packers and keeping in touch with friends and family by email or facebook on her ipad; not bad for a 97 year old! Marge will be sadly missed by her surviving children, daughters and son, Hillary Brooks Hilstrom, Tempe, AZ, Allison Brooks, Scottsdale, AZ, Jane Anderson Mackenzie (Reed), Chaska, MN, Sue Anderson Meyer (Dick), Rick Anderson, both of Sturgeon Bay; grandchildren include, Skylar Brooks Watson, Tempe, AZ, Joanna Mackenzie Daly (Dr. Chris), San Antonio, TX, and Nicholas Charles Robert Anderson, LaSalle, IL; great grandchildren include, Sofie and Calla Miner, Angwin, CA, and Declan, Graham and Owen Charlie Daly, San Antonio, TX. She was preceded in death by her parents; husbands; precious granddaughter, Emily Miner (Dave) of Angwin, CA; son-in-law, Gary Hilstrom, Tempe, AZ; and many friends; and relatives. A private family service and celebration will be held at a later date. HUEHNS Funeral Home & Cremation Services of Sturgeon Bay is assisting with arrangements. Condolences and guestbook signing may be offered on Marge's tribute page at www.huehnsfuneralhome.com . In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Christ the King Church, Crossroads at Big Creek or Door County Humane Society, all in Sturgeon Bay.
