Mr. RYAN of Ohio. Mr. Speaker, I rise to honor the life of Ms.
Margaret Massullo who passed peacefully of natural causes last month in
the presence of her loving family at the age of 90. Margaret was born
August 14, 1923 in Youngstown, Ohio to her proud and caring parents,
Gabor and Elizabeth Vargo. Margaret touched the lives of everyone she
came into contact with, and to those who knew her well, knew her as
sweet ``Margie Marge.'' Marge enjoyed a life full of traveling,
cooking, crocheting, politics, and most of all spending time with her
Marge lived a successful life; some of her professional accomplishments included her notable work at the Seamless Pipe Department of the Youngstown Sheet and Tube during World War II, as well as her work with the Triangle Coat Factory. Known for her wealth of knowledge and true leadership, Marge was elected officer of the Bagnolese Ladies Club and the Saint Anthony's Italian Mother's Club. She prided herself in being an active Member of the ITAM Post along with three other veteran auxiliary groups at both a local and national level.
Although the State of Ohio lost one of its matriarchs, her beautiful memory will continue to live on through the lives she deeply touched and inspired. I extend my deepest condolences to Marge's family. She is survived by her daughter Marguerite, sons Alfred and Ronald (Muzz), sisters Irene and Julie, her brother James, granddaughters Ronelle, Cara, Lauren, Genna and her five great-grandchildren. Marge was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Adolph, brothers Steve and Gabor, sisters Elizabeth, Rose, Goldie, and Julia along with her son- in-law George.
I have a very special friendship with her son Ron, and I know that he, as well as his other siblings, carry their mother's passion for life, her sense of justice for all our citizens, and both a lighthearted and joyous approach to life. Her legacy goes on! Marge was a very special woman and will be long remembered.
