Margery Alice Ezelius, age 91, of Wilmington passed away peacefully on September 17, 2019 at the Regal Heights Healthcare Center. Marge was born in the Bronx, New York on September 11, 1928 and was the daughter of Margaretha K. and Fred H. Leis. She was pre-deceased by her loving husband of 56 years Gene C. Ezelius in 2007.
Marge was a caring, dedicated, compassionate and very special wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She is survived by her daughter Lynne Hale and son-in-law Russ, grandsons “the light of her life” Derrick (Nikki), Chris (Kelly) and Jason (Molly) and great-grandchildren Megan, Emily, Morgan, Brandon and her very special grand-dog Wiley.
In her early years in New York, and before she gave birth to Lynne, she worked at the Home Insurance Company. Marge, Gene and Lynne came to Delaware in 1970 due to a work transfer. In Delaware she worked for Sears (Customer Service at Prices Corner) from which she retired in 1994. Marge and Gene loved Cape Cod (Eastham) and built a vacation/retirement home there in 1984. They spent as much time as they could in that very special place they loved so much.
The family wishes to express their heartfelt thanks to the staff (and friends Eleanor and Betty) at Regal Heights for the wonderful, compassionate and dedicated care they gave to Marge in her final days. A special thanks to Dr. Gene Lee for the many years he has taken care of not only Marge but our whole family.
A visitation and service will be held on Monday September 23, 2019 at the McCrery & Harra Funeral Home 3710 Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington DE beginning at 12:30pm followed by interment at the Silverbrook Cemetery on Lancaster Pike, Wilmington DE.
