Margene loved her family and loved spending time with them. Mom loved to play games like Slam-Bangsies or Creepy Crawler, or round-the-world ping-pong. She loved doing puzzles. Fountain Green was always very special to her and she loved spending time with family, especially for Lamb Days.

Margene was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, attended the Temple as often as she could, and frequently volunteered her time and talents.
