Margaret Alice Grady (Moeller)
Margaret, or Marge as she preferred, was born May 28, 1930 to Paul and Hazel Moeller in Bridgeton, New Jersey. She was baptized into the faith on July 27th of that same year. The second of four children, Marge spent her younger years in Bridgeton, graduating from Bridgeton High School in May of 1948. Marge enlisted in the Air Force in February 1949 and eventually was assigned to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base where she met Aaron Grady; the two were subsequently married on March 27, 1951. After her honorable discharge and a short career as a Civil Servant, Marge and Aaron moved to a small apartment in Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin, where Aaron studied Mechanical Engineering. Marge's first child, Paul, was born in 1955. Aaron graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in May 1956 and moved Marge and Paul to Milwaukee, where he took an engineering position at Milwaukee Power and Light. The family then moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in late 1956 when Aaron accepted a position at the General Electric Company. Donalyn, Marge's second child, was born in 1957, followed by Wayne in 1959, and Todd in 1963. Marge had two passions in her married life – history and the education of young children. She filled her history passion and instilled a sense of historical understanding to her children with vacation trips all across the country to U.S. Historical sites. She filled her passion for education of young children as a Librarian in the Greenhills Elementary School system and as a period character at the Sharon Woods Historical Village. Marge was also talented with her hands, choosing sewing and cross-stitching as recreational hobbies. In their retirement years, Marge and Aaron spent many hours dancing, camping, SCUBA diving, and travelling. They would alternate locations, spending winters in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas and summers in Cincinnati. Aaron preceded Marge in death on November 15, 2010. Marge followed on July 12, 2017. Marge was blessed to see her 10 grandchildren and her 4 great-grand-children before she was called home to dance once again with Aaron and be with the Lord. Gifts in Marge's name to the Beautiful Savior Lutheran School Financial Aid Fund would be in keeping with her earthly passions. Gifts in Marge's name may also be made to The Lupus Foundation of America, Greater Ohio Chapter, or The Christian Village at Mt. Healthy Activity Center.
