    Condolences to the Bugler family. Your loss is felt by many; I am just a small part of people who will miss Marge. My fondest memories of her are when Charlie and Theresa, were in my classroom. Mary Jo was also a pupil of mine. Your mother and grandmother was such a gentle and wonderful person it’s no wonder that all of you were so great. I will pray for you because your mom/grandma is already enjoying heaven and her reunion with Tom. God bless all of you…Anita

    Marge was a wonderful lady. Tom and Marge were both kind and intelligent people. A good example of a good marriage. I remember my mom Marijo Powell, loving to play bridge with them. I am sorry for your loss but also for the bright light that is gone from our world.

  8. Cathy Hare Says:

    Mary Jo, I’m so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I am also sorry we just read about her in the St Pius bulletin and that we missed her services. During our years as really close friends in grade school, your mom was always so kind and gentle towards me. I know she was so proud of you the way you took care of her. I enjoyed visiting with her after mass not too long ago. She is with your ornery dad now and they are both looking down on you with love. Prayers for your family.

Leave a Condolence.
