Margaret Varee (Marge) Slubowski, age 89, of Erie, passed away peacefully on April 6, 2011. She was born on the family farm in Springboro, Pa., March 17, 1922, daughter of the late Constantine & Elizabeth Schaffer Varee. Marge previously worked at Balwaid Jewelers and volunteered countless hours in the Adult Kitchen of the Barber National Institute. She was well known for her quick witted sense of humor, especially her "one-liners". Her faith in God and praying the rosary provided her strength to make her family the number one priority, always putting their needs ahead of her own. She enjoyed many past times, such as cooking, gardening, crocheting and reading. She loved the outdoors whether it was just sitting on the porch with her neighbors or taking a leisurely daily walk. She was a member of St. Casimir Roman Catholic Church. Besides her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Casimer "Walter" Slubowski,
her son, James,
three brothers; Frank, Nicholas and Joseph Varee,
three sisters; Frances Fenn, Elizabeth Lehman
and Anna Varee.
Also three brothers-in-law: Ike Fenn,
John Lehman and Henry "Hank" Slubowski
and two sisters-in-law: Kitty
and Susan Varee.
She is survived by two brothers; John Varee (wife Katy), Constantine Varee (wife Betty),
three sisters; Barbara Varee, Maggie Steigerwald
and Katherine "Kay" Martin. She is also survived by two sisters-in-law Mary Varee and Nancy Slubowski along with many nephews and nieces.
