Obituary Notice:

The Person





Aunt Marge was born in September of 1895, the fourth child of John and Bridget Gill.  She probably attended St. Malachi School (records do not begin for the school until 1920).  The family lived close to the church and she was a fervent Catholic.  She became a stenographer and worked at Midland Steel for many years.  She dated a man named Max Jarmusch; he was a Lutheran and marriage between two faiths was frowned upon.  She never married.  She was godmother to Patrick McCafferty Jr., and Rose McCafferty (Haffner).  She was a little on the hefty side.

Aunt Marge liked to go to ballgames to see the Indians and also she attended the Midland Steel games at Lakewood Elks.

She and her sister Helen talked on the phone at least once a day.  She was a faithful visitor to the house.  She lived on 64th street in her later years, then on Clifton.  She would often take one of the McCafferty or Knittel kids for a weekend, which would be spent in purchasing new clothes and going to Euclid Beach.  At times, Aunt Mary would join the trip to Euclid Beach.

It was not uncommon for her to purchase the First Communion clothes for the nieces.  She suffered from narcolepsy, which was not a problem unless she would begin to snore…in church!

For a time she lived in the back room on 64th Street.  Aunt Marge came to the McCafferty house on workdays for lunch.  In her work position she received many Christmas gifts which she shared wit others.  Aunt Marge died June 6, 1972;  the mass was held at St. Colman and she is buried at Holy Cross.
