Marjorie (Marge) Shomo, Everyday Star

At the top left is a home and a car in a flood, because Marge was a member of the Red Cross Disaster Response Team. At bottom right is a representation of the truck she sometimes drove to help get food to stranded people. 

The top center shows a dental technician assisting a dentist because that was Marge's profession.  She also assisted the dentist at the Matthew 25 Health Clinic.  She continued to volunteer there well into her eighties doing other tasks.  At age 65, Marge joined the Peace Corps and went to Papua New Guinea to teach English.  This is depicted at the top right of the painting. She also loved to write children's stories, and dressed as Mrs. Santa Claus, was a storyteller to children at Christmas. This is the character in the center.
