Margery Duarte, 86, a 60-year resident of Placerville passed away on Sept. 10, 2013. She graduated high school and worked more than 20 years at the Placerville Fruit House. She married Arthur “Bud” Manual Duarte on Dec. 11, 1965. Bud passed away Feb. 19, 1989, and Marge never remarried. She leaves behind two daughters.
Marge’s greatest joy came in spending time with her ever-growing family of five generations. Whether family or friend you could count on Grandma’s shoulder to lean on or her hand to hold. Following in God’s word you can guarantee Grandma took those stairs to heaven. She is now our angel forever by our sides.
Marge’s service will be held at 1 p.m. on Sept. 20 for friends and family at Westwood Hills Memorial Park. She will then be buried alongside Arthur “Bud” Duarte. Grandma and Grandpa will be together forever.
