Marjorie Pooch, 93, of Sandusky, went peacefully to be with our Lord, Wednesday evening, May 8, 2019, surrounded by family at Stein Hospice.

She was born to Harry and Leona (Camp) Lynch on August 16, 1925. Marge graduated from Sandusky High School in 1943. She was married to Orville Pooch who preceded her in death in 1994 and whom she dearly missed.  She was employed as a Head Cashier and Bookkeeper by A&P Foods for 28 yrs. She was a member of St Mary’s Catholic Church. Marge loved cooking and baking, but what she loved the most was spending time with her family at the Pooch Family Farm. She enjoyed her grandchildren’s 4-H projects and the Erie County Fair.

Marge is survived by her sons, Gary Sr. (Kay) Pooch, William (Gloria) Pooch, and Richard (Karen) Pooch, grandchildren, Gary (Cari) Pooch Jr., Jennifer Pooch, Todd Pooch, Mandi (Ben) Yetter,  Tony (Kylie) Pooch, Sarah Pooch (Jared) Opfer, and Adam Pooch.
