Marge was raised in southwest Adair county where she attended rural school. In the spring of 1941, she received her diploma from Kirksville High School. In that same year she met and fell in love with her bus driver Kenny Weber. The were united in marriage on August 27, 1941 and spent 65 wonderful years together before his passing on March 4, 2006. She was a member of the First Christian Church of Kirksville and supporter of the El Kadir Shrine Club as an El Kadir Jewel. After raising her children, Marge went to work for Merin's Dress Shop. Soon after, she became co-owner and manager renaming the business "Mamselle's Fashion". She made many friends and employed many people during that time which she considered the most important part of her business. Marge took great pride in being a businesswoman during the 27 years she owned and managed her clothing store. As much pride as she had in her business, nothing was more important to her than family. Marge was known as a devoted daughter, sister, wife, aunt, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and always kept family as her top priority no matter the circumstances.

Marge enjoyed working in her yard, maintaining her landscape and growing her cacti of which she had many. She also enjoyed cooking and baking pies especially for Kenny's card playing group. Later in life, she and Kenny looked forward to their winter trips to Nassau with their many friends. Marge is an example to her family of a life well lived. She showed her family not only the meaning of love, but more important the meaning of unconditional love. We are very blessed to have her in our lives for many years and will be missed until we meet again. Thank you for all that you have given us - we love you.

Private family services will be held under the direction of Travis-Noe Funeral Home of Kirksville.

Memorial donations in memory of Marge may be made to First Christian Church or to the Shriner's Children's Hospital and may be left or mailed to Travis-Noe Funeral Home, P.O. Box 306, Kirksville, MO 63501.
