Marge graduated from Fairfax High School in 1948 and was class valedictorian. She received her nursing degree from St. Catherine’s University in 1951.
She worked as a registered nurse in the polio ward at General Hospital in Minneapolis for a year and a half before moving to California to work for her brother, Jerry, a physician. On Sept. 23, 1953, she married Robert Lyman McClintick, a classmate from Fairfax, who was in training for the Navy and deployed a few months later. Marge moved back to Fairfax in July 1954 and had their first of seven children.
When her husband, “Bud,” returned from the service, they settled in Green Isle and later Norwood until 1963 when they moved to Worthington and built their home on West Shore Drive. Marge went to work as a nurse at Campbell’s Soup Company from 1965 to 1970. In 1975 she resumed her nursing career at Fauskee’s Nursing Home until returning to Campbell’s in 1988. She retired in 1994. She was active at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, where she helped with funeral dinners and Hour of Adoration on Thursdays. She volunteered as an election judge, was active with the Red Hats Society and was a lifelong and devoted Bridge Club member.
