  • I knew Marg and her 1st husband, Bert, through my parents, John and Ellen Hamm. Loved them both. Marg was a good egg – lots of fun and great energy. I always enjoyed my visits with them. I hadn’t seen her in quite some time but was always glad to know she was out there in the world. Marg will always have a fond place in my memories.

    I offer my condolences to the family.
