Following retirement, Marge and Keith spent many winters in Pharr, Texas, where they formed new friendships and enjoyed warmer weather. When they were no longer able to go south for the winter, they enjoyed socializing with their longtime friends and neighbors in Ames. Marge and Keith were privileged to enjoy 66 years together.
