Peoria- Marjorie “Margie” Clare Fitzgerald, 61, of Geneseo, passed away on September 11, 2020 at 10:30 AM.

Born February 1, 1959 in Peoria, she was the daughter to Larry and Donna (Rahn) Tadie. She married Daniel Fitzgerald on August 21, 1982 at St. Edward’s Catholic Church in Chillicothe, IL.

Margie passionately cared about people. She was a nurse for 35 years, serving patients through OSF Home Care and private duty nursing. She was an incredible mother who raised four loving, and often rambunctious, kids. She was zealous in her faith, serving as a Eucharistic Minister for years at her home parish of St. Philomena where she & Dan attended weekly adoration. Her later years she spent enjoying being the best grandmother and nanny to her dear granddaughters whom she adored. She was always up for an adventure and loved swimming, gardening, sewing, and bike rides with Dan. Margie will be remembered as a loving friend, daughter, sister, wife, aunt, cousin, mother, and grandmother. She exemplified true love throughout her 38-year marriage to her ‘hubby’ Dan.
