Margie went to St. Jerome's Grade school in Cleveland, where she met her future husband Jim, who was a year ahead of her. She then went to Collinwood High school in Cleveland. Then on to Notre Dame Women's College. She was going to school and working in the evening when Jim who had been in the navy stopped in for milk at the Lawson's she worked at. They chatted and after a couple of months of Jim buying a lot of milk, Margie asked him out. They were married at St. Jerome's Church September 2,1967.
