Marge started her career at Safeway in 4/18/67 lasting over 20 years. She joined the Amalgamated
Meat Cutters and Butcher Workmen of North America AFL-CIO – Local Union No. 117.

First and foremost, she had a strong devotion to her Christian faith. Two of Marge’s fondest memories
were her trip to Hawaii with her sister Betty and having her picture taken with Dale Earnhardt Sr. and
Richard Petty. Marge enjoyed listening to Country and Blue Grass music, watching NASCAR and
attending a race when she could. She loved spending time with family and friends telling stories and
talking about old times especially while eating blue crabs along with a nice cold one.

The family would like to extend our gratitude to the Ocala Hospital doctors and nursing staff (especially
Rachel) for taking special care of her and to James Jordan, family friend, caretaker and chauffer. A celebration of life will be determined at a later date by her family.

In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations may be made to the American Lung Association or to your local
Humane Society in honor of Margaret.
