Marge was born June 28, 1921 in a small rural area called Center Springs to hard working farmers. Marge would always manage to go to church activities at Tabernacle Church, now known as Turning Point Church.

From her early childhood of working hard and trying to make things easier for her parents, she developed a desire to improve herself and help others.
