    So sorry to hear of this wonderful woman passing. She will be dearly missed. Margaret Hosking and family.

    Steve and family, our deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. “Those we love can never be more than a thought away…for as long as there’s a memory they live in our hearts to stay.”

    So sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. Marge was my mom’s best friend and I enjoyed seeing her whenever I returned for a UP visit. I have wonderful memories (and pictures) of Marge coming to Round Lake with Kathy to see me and of her visit to Salt Lake City with my mom years ago. I have neat little things she sewed for me, like tablecloths, microwave potato bag, Christmas decorations, etc. I will treasure these as well as her cards and letters—she had the most beautiful handwriting. Can just imagine the reunion in heaven she is having with my mom, Rita. God bless all of you during this difficult time. ~Lynn (LaBumbard) Kelly

    Although I didn’t not know Grandma Evan’s as well as I should have, I do remember her kind and caring sole. Love to the family. Shelly

    Condolences to Steve, Lori and family from an old friend. Marge was a great lady and I enjoyed my times with her and my buddy Ken back in the “old days” at Rapid River. God Bless you.

    Condolences to Marge’s family. Marge will always be remembered as the kind, sweet and talented lady she is.
