They raised 6 children; Ed Jr, Kathy, Jim, Joe, Meg and Ann (“and daughter #4, Lisa”) in Kings Park, NY; on Long Island who gave them 16 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. They retired early and enjoyed camping and traveling around the country until they settled in Fort Pierce FL, only later to move to Loveland CO and then back to Florida where they re-settled in Spring Hill. Although Marge had a knack for playing bingo and loved scratch off’s and enjoyed the occasional slot machine from time to time, in her early years she is most known for making Easter chocolates and wedding cakes. She was also famous for hosting huge Thanksgiving gatherings. Later, she became an accomplished artist; having sold many works in Florida and Colorado. She hand crocheted and knitted many beautiful pieces through the years and would custom paint birthday cards for family and friends. She and Ed would have celebrated their 71st wedding Anniversary next month. She will be forever missed.
