My grandparents (Archie and Lillian Bateman) were very close friends of Marge of Joe which means we were lucky to know them both! Sending much love from New Hampshire where I now live but also feeling comfort knowing my grandparents are having a lovely time with their friends again.

I knew Marge from the NW Senior Center in Albion. She and friends came from time to time. She was always so kind to people in the community and often brought them with her especially if they had trouble getting out. They often met many people they knew and they all enjoyed themselves. You could see the happiness they all had and the sheer kindness she shared so readily!, She will be missed by so many for her thoughtfulness, kindness and great smile! My heart goes out to all of you and I hope your memories will offer you much comfort in the coming days. Prayers to the
whole family!
