Finally, Margy was the always proud mother of two loving daughters, who will forever cherish their memories of her and all the support and love she provided them throughout her life. She will be deeply missed.
Margy was preceded in death by her sisters, Joanne Hill and Janice Sevey. She is survived by her daughters, Renee Aldrich and Erin Aldrich, her son-in-law, Daniel (Renee) Montero, her brother, Donald Steiert, and her sister, Sue Moscarelli.
