Margie was a devout Christian and active member in her church community. She was a member of Calvary Lutheran Church of London, MN.  Marge read her bible every day which allowed her to read the bible in its entirety once a year.

Margie was an excellent cook and baker.  Anyone could have stopped in to say hello to Margie and would not have left without something to eat.  In her later years, she baked chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies for the grandchildren and the farm help.  She loved to play scrabble with her grandchildren.  Margie was an active leader in the Myrtle 4-H Club.  She also enjoyed working on jig saw puzzles with many people, especially with her sister Evy.  She loved to tend her vegetable garden and she enjoyed tending to her dark purple petunias.
