With great sadness the family of Marge Maley announces her passing at her home with her family by her bedside on July 10, 2006, after a lengthy battle with cancer.
Marge loved her flowers, hummingbirds and ‘Buddy’ (her special four legged friend). Camping and fishing were special times for her with family and friends. She would sit in a boat or on the bank for hours to catch the big one.
Marge loved life. She did many crafts. At any craft sale or trade show you would find her with a table full of crafts she had made.
Her grandchildren were very special to her and will always remember Nammies gingersnaps and homemade Grandma jams.
Marge is lovingly remembered by her husband Len Maley of 50 years, daughter Brenda (Rick) Nelson, son Gary (Collette) Maley, son Rod (Shelley) Maley, daughter Sheryl (Brian), brothers Wilfred (Beulah) Bettcher, Ken (Alma) Bettcher, brother-in-law Merv Myhr, sister Lynda (Dave) Laser, 10 grandchildren, 9 nieces and nephews, 18 great nieces and nephews and families and many wonderful friends.
Predeceased by Dad Dave Bettcher 1978, Mom Martha Bettcher 1985, sister Betty Myhr in April 2006.
The celebration of Marge’s life was held July 13, 2006 at Clayton’s Funeral Chapel.
