When I read about Margie's passing, my heart just sunk. Decades ago I supervised Margie at the Y and got to know her on a personal level (how could you not!) She was always kind to everyone and had a smile on her face. She was wiling to work the early morning shift and take other shifts as needed. Margie is one of those people you meet and never forget. Fast forward to a few years ago when I saw her at the Health Science Center with Punk (for therapy). It seemed like days had only passed since we last spoke. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Margie. Margie was a great role model for living a Christian life. I have been blessed for her to be part of my life.

When I moved to La Crosse now some years ago, I felt there were 3 reasons to love the city, one of which was Margie, who was always quietly present, willing, and ready to share anything. Indeed she was part of my best times, my saddest times, and most ordinary times. Even recently, it was great just to share a cup of tea after months of isolation. Margie expressed a sense of appreciation and gratitude for her life, her home, and her family. Gosh, it was simple and it was good. In her surprising and blessedly brief transition, in the midst of your loss and sorrow, you have known a great mom and grandmother. As time goes on, you will live the best that she could give, the best that some will never know or in time forget, but you got it, and your world will be better, just as mine has been and is. Blessings to you.

Lisa and Diane- I was so sad to hear about your mom. She was always so very kind to me. I have great memories of sleep overs at your place during our years together at St James. May your memories give your great comfort during this very sad time. Please take care-prayers and hugs to you all. Mary

Lisa and Diane.... I was saddened to learn of your Mother's death. Perhaps she was ready to rejoin your Dad, Marlin, whom she cared for for so many years. Of course, I remember her for her 25 years of faithful volunteer service in the Gift Shoppe which she would no longer recognize. Maybe she is now talking to Mary Tracy who was the Gift Shoppe manager during most of your Mom's years as a volunteer. I also remember that your Mom learned to swim as an adult and then became a regular lap swimmer at the "Y". I am sorry for your loss but know that your Mom's voice and love will be with you always.

I lived next door to your parents before they built their home I babysat Lisa when Margie did ceramics. Your parents were wonderful people and will always have a place in my heart. I am so sorry to hear of your loss.

To all of Margie's family - Drew and I offer our condolences at this time of your mother's passing. Margie has been a loving friend, and fellow Y swimmer for a handful of decades! In this strange time of social distancing I miss her smile and her laugh. I will hold close her memories. Sincerely, Donna and Drew Sullivan

Dear Lisa and Diane, My sincere condolences on the passing of you Mom. She raised two amazing women who I enjoyed knowing during their high school time at Logan. Thinking of you both.

Prayers and love for this beautiful woman I was proud to call friend. I met Margie at the Y as she was “lotioning” Pat. I loved listening to the two of them chatter and laugh. Eventually I was invited to join them for coffee at Fayze’s, Moka, Java Vino, and King Street Kitchen. We also loved do the white elephant gift exchanges and fire pit meetings at Steph’s. Give my love to Punk, Margie! I will miss you.
