I remember always feeling so welcome at Margie’s house as a young kid. All of us kids playing in our back yards and alley. Remember the crazy acorn fight with rival neighborhood in Barden Park, being rescued by our moms. My thoughts are with all of you. Margie was an amazing woman.

Margie was such a wonderful neighbor to us when we lived on 6th Ave. S. we lived right across the alley and our kids were back and forth all the time. Margie was a brave soul during those first years after the deaths of George and Joey. She was in a widow's group and a friend of Mary Humphery who was a friend of Dorothy Day. So Margie and I were able to have the privilege of meeting Dorothy Day. She was a great friend. My condolences to you all.

My mother, Ann Peopping Koopmeiners (deceased), was part of an original group of friends that worked together at "Clocks Tick Tock Cafe" in St. Cloud. For years the group would get together on a routine basis. There was a lot of conversation and "pranks" played on each other. I believe Marge is the last of the group to pass.
