    I met Margie at 3M. We were good friends and will be sadly missed. She would give the shirt off her back to any one that needed it. Always friendly and a hard worker. May she find peace in her heavenly home. Love, Karen

    I worked with Marge at 3M. We were good friends and I will miss her. She was a hard worker. She would give the shirt off her her back to anyone in need. Taken from this earth too soon, but now she is in peace. My sympathy goes out to all who knew Marge. With love, Karen

    Margie always came to my Mother’s (Doloris Roufs) craft sales and we enjoyed her visits with us. What a great volunteer she was. We had hoped to stop in and see her at the nursing home but with COVID restrictions, didn’t get a chance to. Will keep her and her family in our prayers.

    I got to know Margie when I joined the Winsted Legion Auxiliary within the last few years. She is so dedicated to the Auxiliary,asking us to hold our monthly meeting last May at St. Mary’s so she could take part. May she rest in peace.
