Marje was a wonderful person. I knew her years ago when she was a young mother.. My father, Al Cosh, worked for the Ritter Agency in Middletown, and we knew most of the Ritters at that time. I also knew Marje in her professional rule as an RN at Horton, and she was always friendly, smiling, polite, and professional. You have been blessed to have had such a great Mom, Grandma, Sister, and friend. God bless you all. Marsha Cosh Tyrrell
