I am so sorry to hear of Marge's passing. I worked with her for years at Dales Electronics. I will never forget when she got her rose tattoo! She had a great sense of humor. Her and the hubby are back together now. May she rest in peace.

My deepest sympathy goes to the families of Marjorie Novotny. I had very close ties to your family. Marjorie's mother Helen Swatek, was one of my grade school teachers. Ramona Novotny was a classmate at Tyndall High School. And finally, I worked at Dale Electronics during Marjorie's tenure there. May she now reap the rewards and rest in peace for a life that was well lived.

Many years ago Marge worked with my mom, Twila Repp, at Dale Electronics. It resulted in a years-long friendship that survived our move to Oregon. I almost thought of Marge and Al as a second set of parents, and loved them dearly. I am sorry to hear of her passing, she was a wonderful lady with a great sense of humor. She will be missed.
