Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Marge, as she likes to be called, has been a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother to Waldemar, Suzanne, Christopher and Amanda. Marge grew up in Stratford Ct, where she met Wald ,and had a whirlwind romance with a charismatic gentleman from Europe with Old European charm. Together they managed to travel the world, even living in Europe for a couple of years after putting their daughter through college.
Around twenty years ago, Marge overcame uterine cancer, and was cancer free until approximately four years ago, when she survived breast cancer. It was a horrible struggle for her, requiring two surgeries, but she fought it like a trooper, and has been cancer free since.
About three years years ago Marge's memory began to fail here and there. Nothing serious, as she almost eighty, but not herself. It took a rapid decline, and she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. It's been a steady decline, requiring me to give up my home and move in with them, to enable them to remain home, in the least resstrictive environment, with dignity, as she would wish, and she deserves. I have posting updates on Facebook, but this is more private and dignified, and I know that it is only going those that care to know. Thank you for being a part of Mom's journey.
