So sorry to learn of Marge's passing. She was always part of our "family" as Marge and mom (Lodema Speicher Kirby) graduated together as well as mom standing up with Marge when she married Jack. There was never a dull moment when Marge was around. I also worked with her at Magnetics for several years. Marge will be missed, but her memories will live on in our hearts.

My sincere condolences,

Coral Kirby
