    Our deepest sympathies on the loss of this wonderful woman. Aunt Marge was always such a bundle of energy and I never saw her without a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes. I have so many great memories of her from our childhood days.

    You now have another guardian angel watching over you. In time, your hearts will be filled with the memories and love she brought to us all.

    Love,
    Debbie, Laura and Lisa

      AUNT MARGE,
      Havent seen her in a couple of years ..
      but have always seen her at the yearly family reunions for many years..,
      Marge was a 1st cousin to my mother, Eileen Ruth Wood-Wollmuth who turns 86 this July 10th.
      years ago when times were tuff, mom said when she was really young, she lived with her uncle Weldon and Marge’s family for a while, while her folks worked in the city of Chicago.. or so I’ve been told, my memory fails at remembering all the foggy details about that time.
      My sympathies to aunt Marge’s family and all my cousins Carol and Nancy.
      Marge was always a sweet wonderful woman when I was just a wee wippersnapper and I and my younger siblings, at a young tender age spent many a summer with Marge’s daughters Nancy and Carol running under the sprinkler at their home in RoundLake or going to the south RoundLake beach or going over to Grandma Marion Wood’s home in Round Lake Park.
      ..and when my grandmother Helen Wollmuth died while I was in grade school, I lived with Marge’s family for a week or so, so that my folks could tend to my now deceased father [William T. Wollmuth]’s mother’s funeral in Clearlake South Dakota.
      RIP Aunt Marge, you were one of the good and caring people in all of our lives.

    I was saddened to hear of Aunt Margie’s passing. She was a treasure. I don’t think I ever saw her not smiling. Please accept my condolences and hugs on behalf of my mom, Beta, and the rest of the Donohues, Maura, Kevin, Megan, and Kelly.

    Love,

    Tim

    Very saddened to hear of her passing.
    I have many cherished memories as a child when we visited and played in the backyard, and picked lollipops from the “Sucker Tree” in Grayslake.
    Thank you for being a part of my life.
