Goddess saw she was getting tired And a cure was not to be So she put her arms around her And whispered "Come with me" With tearful eyes we watched her suffer And saw her fade away Although we loved her dearly We could not make her stay A golden heart stopped beating Hardworking hands put to rest Goddess broke our hearts to prove to us She only takes the best.

In Loving Memory of Our Mother
June 10, 1920 - May 19, 2007
"The Florence Nightingale Pledge"
I solemnly pledge myself before God and the presence of this assembly; To pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully.
I will abstain from whatever is deterious and mischievous and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug.
I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling.
With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.
My best memory is of her actually liking the truest love of my life. Though both he and I were walking down tracks that most would deem bad, she also saw the beauty of who he was. That complete acceptance of myself, my life and my love were confirmation that no matter how bad things got, I always knew my Grandma loved me, unconditionally and always.

Sisters, Mary and Adele both remember the loving care she provided her siblings as they were growing up. Mary said "Marge was always kind and generous." Adele recalls that she always looked out for them and how that made them all feel safe and loved. Adele also remembers her singing in the church choir.
No Less a Grandson
Marge never seemed to treat me any different than the rest of the grand kids and was always happy to see me. The funniest thing I remember was seeing the look on her face when she stood next to my CR. England truck and realized how big it was or maybe how little she was! The look on her face was priceless! She was always happy to offer up a cup of coffee and have you sit and chat for awhile and seemed really intrigued when I would tell her of where I had been and all I'd seen while driving that "BIG BEAST" of a truck she called it. I will miss her.

Remembering Aunt Margie
When I remember Aunt Margie I will think of childhood days in her swimming pool, and bus rides to her house with some of my friends to spend some summer days with her. I will remember hours of card games and laughter. I will remember a woman who loved her family. Oh, and she loved her pets, didn't she, cats and dogs alike. And her potato salad, YUMMY!!! Hers was the only potato salad I ever liked. She always had some good sweets lying around. Yup, she was my kind of woman. So many memories that I am thankful for. But in my mind to really give her honor, I have to say , I will remember and miss most , the unconditional love and acceptance that she always showed me. I never felt judged by her. She always made me feel safe. There isn't one particular incident that gives me this feeling, it's just who she was. I can even feel it right now and I'm sure I always will. I will forever be grateful to have been blessed with such a person for my aunt. Before finishing up I need to tell a little story about my daughter. From the time my kids were little they referred to Aunt Margie as "1 Tooth Lady". While I was crying one night over the loss of Aunt Margie, my sweet 10 year old Jenna, came to me, wrapped her arms around me and said "It's o.k. Mommy, 1 Tooth Lady has all her teeth now and right now she is probably eating a nice sweet juicy apple". (Although Paul and I are thinking more like prime rib) but that thought really made me smile; even laugh a bit. So, even in death there is the hope of life and I know Aunt Margie is living it up right now enjoying all the things that she could no longer do on this earth. This brings me peace and I look forward to seeing her in heaven when my time comes. I will miss you Aunt Margie and you will forever be in my heart. I love you.

Loving, generous, non- judging, a care-giver, bus riding, crossword puzzle solver, potato salad maker, pet loving, feisty little lady who loved to eat out, and had a yen for pizza and The Colonel. She enjoyed making people happy and never forgot her vow as a nurse. Her life was richly blessed as she was a blessing to so many. This is the woman we will hold in our hearts. This was Margaret Clemmer, our mother.
