Pete, I am so sorry to hear about Marge, she was a colleague and friend. She was so helpful to me as a rookie Principal. She was funny and she knew how to get information necessary for a successful school year. She will be missed by everyone she worked with for the many years at the SAU.

I will miss her. She was always so supportive and helpful. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend the visiting hours due having to stay isolated for my own health reasons. I am thankful to have known her and called her friend.

Peter, I am so sorry to hear about Marge. I loved her very much. We was the only one that could keep me sane while working at the SAU. She had a love of life and for people. She will be more than missed, but I will keep all the great memories forever.

Marge was the best. When I started working for the school system 19 years ago she took me under her wing; we had many conversations (and complaint sessions) and she always kept me on track; she taught me well. She and Pete always had such a great connection with the kids including my own and she would always ask about them and how they were doing. She will be truly missed by many. Rest well my friend. My heart goes out to Pete and family, I will be keeping you in my prayers.

I was one of those Superintendents who worked for Marge. I so enjoyed working with her and she kept me out of trouble as a new superintendent. I was devastated when I got word Marge had died. My condolences to the family. Pete my heart goes out to you I know how much you and Marge did together. You and you family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Marge was my work mom for 18 years. She was always there when I needed her and I hope I was there for her, too. My heartfelt and deepest condolences go out to Peter and her family. I cannot image the depth of your sorrow.

With sympathy and love,

Words cannot express how sorry I am for the loss of a great woman. May she Rest In Peace. Pete was a lucky man to have a lifetime spent with his very best friend. ❤

I worked for Littleton Schools for several years. Whenever I needed to go to the central office Marge was always there with smiles and warmest of greetings. Mrs. Pete was and still is a dynamic and beautiful soul. Mr. Pete won the lottery with her. When Forrest Gump spoke of peas and carrots, Mr. and Mrs. Pete were the epitome. Rest well Marge. God Bless to all her Family.

Our visits to the Lake every summer just won't be the same without you Marge. We'll miss your smile and laugh and our evenings on the porch. God Bless. Cathie and Bob
