Marge departed from this earthly world May 31, 2023, with her son Matt Connolly, and daughter-in-law Lisa Ownby, at her bedside. Her four additional sons, Chris Connolly (Judy), Steve Connolly (Denise), Pat Connolly (Val) and Terry Connolly (Kelli) survive her. Additionally, her brother Adrian Albert and sister, Jackie Yohe survive her. She is preceeded in death by her father, Adrian Francis Albert, her mother, Bertha Stanton Albert, and sisters Patricia Holmes, and Katherine Albert Sher. Marge loved her twelve grandchildren and nine great grandchildren very much. She was proud of their accomplishments and relished being a grandmother.
Marge was born and raised in Wheeling, WV. She married in 1959 and moved to Maryland. She was a homemaker and mother to five boys. As the boys became more independent, she became a Certified Nursing Assistant and began working with the elderly. She later earned her Licensed Practical Nursing Certification and moved to Tampa, Fla in 1974. Where she pursued a 28-year career, for the John Knox Hospital System and caring for seniors. She loved caring for her patients and supporting others in the field of elder care.
Marge was a strong willed, and independent woman. She loved her family, grandchildren, and great grandchildren fiercely. She moved back to Maryland in 2002 to be close to her sons and grandchildren. She enjoyed family cookouts and pool time for many years in Maryland. She moved to Williamsburg in 2019 when she needed more care and became an integral part of the Ownby-Connolly household.
Marge was unique and special in so many ways. She will be missed sorely. She departed this world at peace, and peacefully.
A memorial service will be held at King of Glory Lutheran Church, Williamsburg, VA on July 9, 2023 at 3 p.m. Following her ashes will be spread in her hometown of Wheeling, WV.
