MARGE BENNETT PROFILE

Marge became a sweet Adeline in 1974 as a charter member of the Merrimack Valley Chorus.

In her 23 years of service to Sweet Adelines, Marge held almost every leadership role there is

in a chapter, as well as serving Region 1 as its Regent and Treasurer for multiple terms.

Although the number of positions held by Marge is amazing, it was how she served that made

Marge the truly remarkable woman she was.

FAIR AND HONEST: Marge always found good in someone even if she might have been hurt by

them. She never took the easy way out. It was always what she felt was right and fair that

should be done.

BEHIND THE SCENES: She preferred not being in the limelight but always wanted others to be

recognized for their achievements.

HARD WORKING: She had many varied hobbies and interests and worked tirelessly, always

ready to pitch in and do whatever needed doing in each area.

INNOVATIVE, CREATIVE AND PATIENT: Marge wasn’t afraid to say, “Why not?” She would

patiently, oh so patiently, encourage and lead others to fulfillment and conclusion of a

project. She always saw the light at the end of the tunnel when others were becoming

discouraged. No project was too awesome or too big a challenge.

POSITIVE: Everything was always done with a smile and a word of encouragement. Her

last words to a very dear friend were “Remember to keep positive thoughts.”

LOVE FOR OUR HOBBY: Marge loved Sweet Adelines and always wanted to share this love and

have others experience the joy that she had received.

UNSELFISH: She gave unselfishly of her time and love to her family and many friends.

WHOEVER IS CHOSEN TO RECEIVE THIS AWARD SHOULD WEAR IT WITH THE HIGH STANDARDS

OF PRIDE, DIGNITY AND LOVE THAT MARGE EXEMPLIFIED EVERY DAY OF HER LIFE.
