Our Friend Marge

Marjorie Lou Sharrow died peacefully in the presence of her family on Sunday, March 13, 2016 at the Meadows in Rutland. She was born February 7, 1916 on a farm near Angola, Indiana, the only child of Charles G. and Marion Pilliod Kidney. She was raised on the farm by her widowed grandmother, Della Gilbert Kidney, and moved to Cleveland to live with her parents when she started school. Read more here.

We have a dear friend in Marge. She is in the fullness of her life celebrating her birthdays. We hope you lovingly read her son's letters about their journey as Marge lives "joyous" in the "eternal present" with her dementia.

— Dorian, Ruth, & Linda

After The Forgetting... a delicate story about love and dementia. It weaves memory and moments through the intertwined lives of Greg Sharrow, his mother Marge, and his husband Bob. And, if you’re wrestling with a tricky emotional story, producer Erica Heilman has written usefully on Transom about the process of making this meditation. As she says, she wanted to “offer people a picture of how one family is managing dementia in a really graceful, loving way. I wanted to achieve this without ever using words like ‘loving’ or ‘graceful’."
