Marge worked for the Lynden Darigold plant for 27 years and retired in 1985. She continued to do the bookwork for Eddie Markham Trucking for several more years. Eddie also preceded her in death in 2008. Marge and Eddie enjoyed going to Reno twice a year, and were otherwise always home to “watch” over the neighborhood and lend a helping hand to whomever needed it. They enjoyed sitting on the shop bench and watching the world go by. They also enjoyed their dogs Scooter, Missy, Candy, Muffin, Bubbles, and Cuddles.
