Marge, the daughter of Vincent Kaskie and Ella Kappenman Kaskie, was born August 11, 1925, in Montrose, SD. On November 20, 1951, she was united in marriage with Keith L. Kersey in Mitchell, SD. Marge was a loving wife and devoted mother and grandmother. She was so fun loving and had such a wonderful sense of humor that she was a joy to be with and was much loved by her family and friends.
In addition to part time jobs over the years, her main vocation and occupation was that of homemaker, which she did with such style and grace. Her husband and children were the grateful recipients of her hard work, talent, and creativity. She was an accomplished seamstress and produced countless beautiful garments over the years, as well as home decorating projects such as drapery and upholstery. She was an excellent cook and was especially known for her delicious pie crusts.
