Margery J. (Hughes) Fees, lifetime resident of Niagara Falls, passed away on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at her home. She was 88.

She married Gordon Fees on March 31, 1945 and they remained happily married for 67 years until her passing.
Mrs. Fees was a longtime member of the LaSalle Church of Christ and she enjoyed camping, and knitting socks and outfits for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also enjoyed square dancing with the Falls Squares and the Lockport Curly Q's but her greatest joy was her time with her family, especially her grand and great-grandchildren. She worked at Moore Business Forms, Wendt's Dairy and Nabisco Shredded Wheat.
