I visited with Marjorie several times at Schroeder family reunions in Bloomfield. I enjoyed those conversations very much. Majorie was a sweet person. I will post this in the name of all the Schroeders because I know there are others who share my opinion. We will remember her fondly and miss her.

My deepest sympathies to Cindy, Mike, and Mitch and all your families. I have fond memories of your Mom and spending time with all of you on our trips to Nebraska many moons ago. Aunt Marge always had the most infectious smile and laugh and it was fun when she started laughing about something. I hope you are all doing well during this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
