Marge had a very memorable childhood where she and her siblings attended the one room Bright School. During the war years Marge and her sisters worked alongside their father in the fields. She had many fond memories of her Father and Grand Father. When she shared her memories, you could feel the warmth of the sun and the sweet smell of sage. She spent many harvest seasons helping her mother canning, curing their own bacon and they also made soap of lye. She Married the love of her life Ben Kriete December 29th, 1950. They began farming in Ephrata in 1952 and raised their two children, Maxine and Ross. Marge was well known for her meals large enough to feed an army and the stories she shared of growing up in Grant County. She enjoyed cooking, reading, camping and going horseback riding in the mountains. Ben and Marge loved to take family and friends packing and camping in the mountains with the horses. They often visited Frosty Pass, Lion Rock and Winthrop’s 49er Rendezvous. Marge is survived by her sister Jean, brother Frank, children Maxine Kriete and Ross Kriete (Joanna Hill). Four grandchildren: Jesse (Heidi) Kriete; Shannon (John) Purdy; Sara (Ryan) Bradfield; Megan Kriete (Shane Feekes) along with their great grandchildren; Weslee, Cooper, Damon, Carlee, Samantha and John Jr. Marge was preceded in death by her parents, Sisters May, Mary Jane and beloved husband Ben. There will be a celebration planned in the spring. Please sign the online guestbook or leave a note for the family at www.kayserschapel.com Arrangements are in care of Kayser's Chapel & Crematory.
