O n February 28, 2012 Marjorie Elaine Hurley passed away at Glens Falls Hospital following a long illness.
Marge was born on Feb. 4, 1951 in Rupert, Vt., the daughter of the late Stanley and Mary C. (Hicks) Hurley.
Marge was an avid sports fan, especially Dallas Cowboy football. She was very supportive of local sports, watching her son and grandchildren through the years, and was even in attendance at local sporting events even when she had no family involved. She was an Elvis fan to the end. Marge was no stranger to hard work. She worked three jobs at some points in her life, but she loved her job at GE which she held for 38 years. Never one to be idle. Marge adored her grandchildren and always wanted the best for them.
Marge is survived by her son William L. Jones. She is survived by her two grandchildren Nathan Allen and Elisabeth Jones. Marge is also survived by her sisters Mary Ramey and her husband Brian, and Joanne Reid and her husband James, and her brothers Stanley (Bug), George, Douglas and Daniel Hurley, as well as many nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind her good friends Joanne Parker and Jackie Jones.
