Margaret Megles-Norris Obituary

Margaret “Marge” Megles-Norris, age 94, of Fort Wayne, IN passed away on Sunday, February 4, 2024, at Lutheran Life Villages at Inverness Lakes.  Born on November 3, 1929, in Cokeburg, PA, she was the daughter of the late John and Mary (Niscak) Shepelak.  Marge spent her youth in Bentleyville, PA and moved to Fort Wayne to be close to her brother and employment opportunites. She worked as a bookkeeper for Marsh’s grocery store for over 20 years.  After retiring from Marsh’s, she worked for Maloley’s and People’s Trust Bank.  When not working, Marge enjoyed gardening, often canning and freezing vegetables from her garden. She was a good cook and excelled at baking.  Marge also enjoyed reading, playing board games and cards, traveling, fishing, and bowling.  She even bowled in a league while living in Florida.  Most of all, she enjoyed being a grandmother to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Marge will be remembered for her great sense of humor, which she kept even in her last years.  The absence of “Marge in Charge” will be deeply felt by all who knew and loved her.  Left to cherish her memory are her children, Laura (Ryland) Taliaferro, Jim (Kath Botteron) Megles, and Ed (Tammy) Megles; son-in-law, David Bierbaum; sister-in-law, Dorothy Megles; six stepchildren; grandchildren, Josh (Natalie) Megles, Jordan Megles, Carson Megles, Greg (Betsy) Bierbaum, Amy (Chris) Morris, and Tolly Taliaferro; great-grandchildren, Elliott, Liam, Zac, Callum, and Nonie; and numerous nieces and nephews.  Marge was preceded in death by her husbands, Elmer “Moe” Megles and Bill Norris; daughter, Linda Bierbaum; brothers, Mike, Andy, Ben, Joe, and Steve Shepelak; sister, Helene Smith; her parents; and brother-in-law Joseph Megles.  The family would like to thank in abundance the care and love she received from the staff at Lutheran Life Villages at Inverness and Eleos Hospice Care.  A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 25, 2024, at Divine Mercy Funeral Home, 3500 Lake Avenue, Fort Wayne, IN 46805 with visitation beginning at 10:00 a.m.  Marge will be laid to rest at Catholic Cemetery, Fort Wayne.  Memorials can be made to Redemption House Ministries, The Literacy Alliance, or a charity of your choice.  Fond memories and expressions of sympathy can be left at www.divinemercyfuneralhome.com for the family.
