She met her husband Kenneth at Grinnell and they moved to Los Alamos in 1951 where they raised their family.

Marge left the world a better place with the love she gave to her family. She leaves a legacy of kindness and friendship to all who knew her and love and beautiful memories for her family.

Our family would like to thank special caregivers Trisha, Kerri, Luisa and Paige as well as the Los Alamos Visiting Nurses for their compassionate care. They became an extended part of our family.

Marge is survived by her husband, Kenneth Wilson, with whom she celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary on November 5, 2016. In retirement Marge and Ken enjoyed traveling to visit family and play duplicate bridge together for 25 years. In both life and bridge Ken said he had found his perfect partner.
