Marge met the love of her life, James, who caught her eye mostly because of his “slick sports car.” They shared many years of happiness, building a family together with the addition of their two children, Mark and Michele. When her children married, their spouses were instantly greeted into the family and loved just like they had always belonged there. Eventually, Marge and James were blessed with grandkids Ashley, Tyler, Jessica, and Jacob, whom Marge spoiled endlessly and who were the center of her universe (along with her Grandfurbaby, Dexter, of course!)
In her down time, Marge loved to walk everywhere she could, watch the cooking channel, enjoy Broadway musicals, care for her plants, and collect everything Mickey Mouse she could find. One of the last presents she received was a stuffed Mickey Mouse Tyler got her for Christmas.
