Marge always greeted me with a big smile! My love

to Steve, Vick and Jude and all of your spouses, families

and significant others. You did a heck of a good job

taking excellent care of Marge these last years when she couldn't have managed alone. Raising good kids is the

best we can do in this world, so Marge did great. Mary Brady

Steve, Vicki and Judy,

So sorry to hear of your mother passing. So hard to let go of a parent no matter how old they are. She was just a sweet, sweet lady. Hugs and prayers to all of you. Mary O'Connor

When I think of the family friends who most influenced my life growing up, Marge & Bob Wordelman are at the top of the list. They were like second family to me, with many hours spent at their home or at the grocery store. And many times spent doing "scouting" activities, including the years at camp Rota-Kiwan. Vicki, Judy & Steve have a lifetime of wonderful memories to share and keep. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

To the Wordelmans , Its very difficult to let are parents go, but they are in a better place. I can remember stopping at the gas station on the walk home from Barrows, always had great treats! Keep the memories alive. In our thoughts and prayers

To the Wordelman family...How sad to learn of the passing of your mother. When I think of Marge I think of sunshine. She was always bright and cheerful. You are all in my thoughts and I am wishing you all comfort.
