Marguerite Lois Gramling

Marguerite Lois (Novinger) Gramling, 56, a resident of ManorCare North, who died unexpectedly, went to be with the Lord on Monday, March 25, 2013.

She was born Dec. 20, 1956, in Williamsport and was the daughter of the late Carl Leslie and Mary Eleanore (Brown) Novinger, coming into the world holding hands with her twin sister Marjorie. She was a graduate of Loyalsock Township High School.

Marguerite was married to the late Edward Paul Gramling who passed away April 14, 2008. Marguerite and Ed had been married for 28 years.

Marguerite was a true believer in Jesus and had made many friends through her fellowship in Jesus Christ. She was a devoted member of Agape Fellowship and a childhood member of Faith Wesleyan Church in Williamsport.

Marguerite loved listening to music, doing her puzzle books and collecting stuffed animals, which she never faltered in giving to someone else in need of a fuzzy friend. Marguerite had a contagious laugh and a sincere and giving heart and will be missed by all.

She is survived by her twin sister, Marjorie Ellen Bertin of Williamsport, and two other sisters, Caroline Ann Hamilton of Williamsport and Mary Helen Novinger of Lima, N.Y.; three brothers, Carl Nelson Novinger of Charlestown, W.Va., John William (Jackie) Novinger of Hughesville and Roy Dwight (Sandy) Brown of Perkasie along with many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by three sisters and one brother early in childhood.

There will be a public viewing 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 30, 2013, at the Allen & Redmond Funeral Home, 331 Elmira St., Williamsport, followed by a gathering of family and friends at 5 p.m. at the Agape Fellowship, 485 E. Third St., Williamsport.
