She was a constant fixture greeting customers with her infectious smile and the best produce in town, grown by her husband. During the winter months, Marge enjoyed beach vacations to Longboat Key, Florida with her family. Marge was a very generous and giving person, who privately loved and cared for those who were less fortunate. Above all things, her family and friends were her greatest joy.
