I am so sorry to hear of Margery's passing. I always felt warm when being around Marge. I remember when I had my office in Hinsdale, several times a year Marge would stop in to say hi and we would chit-chat about family. I always enjoyed her newsy Christmas newsletter.

My wife Marilyn and I extend our condolences and warmest sympathy to Margery's family and her close friends.

C.L. Goetz, cousin
