COLUMBIA — Marge was 100 years young, an avid card player who loved to play Hearts and Poker with her family and would never turn down an opportunity to play Bridge with her friends or watch her beloved St. Louis Cardinals on television.
Born in St. Louis in 1913, Marge graduated from Roosevelt High School and attended Rubicam Business School. She worked as a Bookkeeper and after moving to Columbia, Mo in 1947, she was the Administrative Assistant at the University Laboratory and High Schools, and an Undergraduate Advisor at the University of Missouri.
Marge was married to Ambrose C. Nathe, a long-time Chevrolet dealer in St. Louis and Columbia, for 64 years until his death in 1998. They belonged to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church and enjoyed bowling and traveling together.
Over 200 family and friends attended Marge’s 100th Birthday Party in May of 2013, and she will be greatly missed by all those who had the good fortune of knowing her.
Marge was preceded in death by her husband, Ambrose Nathe, and her grandson, Richard Bliss, and is survived by Ruth Bliss of Tarpon Springs, FL; Tom Nathe of Columbia, MO, and Micki Schulze of Kansas City, MO, as well as seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
Interment will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, January 3, 2014, at Memorial Park Cemetery. Tributes can be left online at www.memorialfuneralhomeandcemetery.com.
