What an inspiration to all of St. Maurice to be the light of the church. To be remembered like that and doing God’s work would have no greater reward. What a legacy to leave behind that everyone knows. Marge was able to use her gifts from God and share them with the whole parish starting with the 5th grade class and showing us all the importance of the beautitudes and wearing jeans that aren’t “holy”. She taught us each how to not only be a server but, how to serve God. She taught us all not by her words, but by her actions on how to live our lives and “always fold your hands with your fingers pointing to God!” . She treated every child like her grandchild and held us all to the... standards she knew we could meet.
Marge checked in on Thomas and I each Sunday to ask how we were doing and to notice how quickly he was growing, and always making sure to offer,” Bring him by the house anytime! I’d love to watch him.” I can’t think of church and not think of Marge. The two simply go hand-in-hand. You know it was a life well lived when the hole she left in the church will cause us all to come together and step up to cover all the duties and works she had her hands in.

I am deeply sorry for such a great and unexpected loss you all are experiencing. With a heavy heart I know, She was one of God’s great handyworks and she will be very missed and always remembered by so many.

I will always remember her kind words and her reaching out to me in 2017 with the loss of my mother Rita (Wilcox) father Jerry and brother Brian Berkemeier. Such a sweet soul. My heart and prayers are with my family and friends in their grief.
