Marge was born on September 16, 1947 in Milwaukee, WI to Mary Bialucha. It was in the Browerville, MN area that she attended public school and grew into womanhood.

She will be lovingly remembered by her five children: Allen of Nevis, Larry of Menahga, Roger of Alexandria, Linda (Patrick) Jones of Menahga and Jeni (Byron) Jones of Menahga; ten dearly loved grandchildren and six precious great grandchildren.
