Marjorie married Allen “Gus” Pledge June 18, 1950, who preceded her in death.

Marge enjoyed spending time with her family, especially when everyone got together at the family home. She was a hands-on grandma and delighted in watching her great-grandchildren too.  Marge always remembered birthdays and anniversaries, and created many keepsakes through her knitting, cross-stitch, Christmas stockings, ornaments, and wreaths. She and Gus enjoyed gardening together throughout their marriage.
