Marge is survived by her devoted husband, Bobby who was from Montezuma, Georgia. They met in Atlanta, Georgia, and married on November 2, 1956.

Marge was born on July 8, 1937, in Oglethorpe, Georgia. Marge graduated from Oglethorpe High School in 1955, attended Georgia Baptist Nursing School and graduated from Northern Virginia Nursing School becoming a Registered Nurse. She was a nurse for 40 years ending that career at INOVA Fairfax Hospital in Fairfax, Virginia. She touched and impacted so many lives during her life. She was a role model to her caregivers during the last three and a half years always encouraging them to better themselves and pursue nursing. She loved searching for antiques on all of her trips to estates sales and yard sales.
