This is Marge's sister Sarah, posting this on her page to reach her many, many Facebook friends.

We have finally set a date, time and place for a gathering to Celebrate Marge's life: Sunday, September 23, from 1 to 4 pm in the Cotati Room near Marge and Al's home. The official address is 216 East School Street, Cotati, but if you know where Marge lived, it's in the Cotati Civic Center, just across the street from her driveway.

Please leave a comment here if you can come, we we can estimate the attendance. Please also share this event with other friends who know Marge but not might use Facebook.

Thank you, and hope to see you there!

Al and Jim and I have talked about what charity we suggest people donate to in memory of Marge Cameron, if that's the kind of thing you do. Marge herself donated to many, many charities, and if there is a particular charity to whom you would like to donate in her memory, great! But if you would like to send something to a group that was particularly meaningful to her, we suggest the Humane Society of Sonoma County, in Santa Rosa, CA.

Marge was a "doggie person," and after her beloved Iggy died, she volunteered to walk dogs for the Humane Society. There she fell in love with Betty, and I'll never forget the evening she called me, crying, because someone had adopted Betty before she could. But it turns out that adoption didn't "take," and a few days later Betty was back, to go home with Marge and to stay with her until the night Marge passed away.

You can donate over their website, if that's your thing,, or you can mail a donation to them at PO Box 1296, Santa Rosa, CA 95402.

Very sorry to hear about Margie's passing. She was a fellow Miami alum, a very bright person, and a very nice lady. Mike Perez

I was so sorry to hear this news of Marge today.  I enjoyed sharing a table with her at the 50th reunion and catching up with her life.  Her dad was our family doctor growing up.

So sorry for the loss of this beautiful lady.  I remember being in elementry school with Marge and continuing on to high school.  We had some good times at girl scout camp.  Your father was our family's door.

Gosh, what a sad day! She was such a bright ray of sunshine, someone you always looked forward to seeing.

From the fifth grade, when I imitated Marge's handwriting so that I could get all A's too, throughout high school and all the years since, Marge has been one of my most beloved friends... Though we were separated by half a continent, our friendship remained vibrant and strong and constant, and  I had been so blessed the past several years to spend quality time with her whenever she was home to visit her sister, Mary. We had been making plans for a few little excursions this fall when she returned,  only a few days before she left on an adventure where I can't  follow. She was my kindred spirit-only a better version of myself... A one-of -a-kind friend that we're lucky to ever experience in a lifetime. Always easy, wise, plucky in adversity, spirited and adventurous with a smile as wide and beautiful as her generous heart... Though the pain of loss is fresh now, it will ease-as pain usually does.... And I'll carry her in my heart forever with so many other dearly loved ones who have "crossed the bar".

A toast to Marge!!!!

Yes, a toast to Marge.  Perhaps chai tea.  Paul and I had a delightful afternoon with Marge in the Bay area.  She was so alive, and yes that brilliant smile. I'm so glad we could talk at reunion.

Marge was a special lady, one of God’s gifts I all she knew. We became friends at Grace Episcopal Church

when I first moved to Defiance as a sixth grader. I have enjoyed sharing time with her at the reunion.  Marge occupies a warm place in my heart.
