Marjory (Marge) A. Moe, 75, passed away peacefully on Jan. 2, 2019, in the Cabinet Peaks Medical Center in Libby in company of loved ones.

Marge was the third child of four born to Walter and Virginia Deurmier in Wagner, S.D., on Oct. 4, 1943. She was preceded in death by her parents and brothers Murel and Dale.

Marge was raised and attended school in Wagner. She married Edward Moe on Jan. 15, 1962, in Wagner. Jan. 15 would have been their 57th wedding anniversary. They started their life together in Fort Peck, Mont., living there 17 years. They were blessed with two children, Virginia and Richard. In 1978 Marge and Ed moved to Libby, where she resided until her death. Marge was a wife and mother (homemaker) of which she was proud to have been able to do.

Marge was always active in her community. When her children were younger, she was active in the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of Fort Peck. While in Libby, she was active in the Sons of Norway, where she helped make lefsa for many years. Marge was active with the local Chapter of the Red Cross Blood Drive, the American Legion, the local Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Libby Food Commodities Program at the VFW. She enjoyed her bowling league, pinochle, hand-and-foot and many other games — and her TOPS family. She was also a member of the Christ Lutheran Church in Libby. She always loved to tease and banter with her many friends. Marge and Ed loved to attend the local dances at the American Legion and VFW. She would often be found participating in many local social events. She will be greatly missed.

Marge is survived by her husband, Ed, Libby; daughter Virginia (Victor) King of Havre; grandson Vic and great-granddaughters Kaylie and Ava, Havre; grandson Aron (Rudyard); son Richard (Helen) Moe, grandsons Travis and Trevor of Palmyra, Va.; brother Robert Deurmier of Minneapolis; and many nieces and nephews — including a special nephew, Dale Briese, who was always there to spice up Marge and Ed’s life.

Services will be at noon on Thursday, Jan. 10, at Christ Lutheran Church in Libby. Arrangements are by Schnackenberg Funeral Home in Libby. Online condolences and memories may be shared at www.schnackenbergfh.com.
