Obituary

Marguerite “Marge” McDonald Iden, 88 years young, enjoyed a much anticipated homecoming in heaven in the early morning hours of Monday, June 24, 2019, at The Arbors of Minerva. She was born on May 20,1931, to Arthur and Mary McDonald in Canton Ohio and grew up in East Rochester, Ohio. Marge married the love of her life, Howard “Bud” Iden on June 20, 1948, and together they raised four children in a home filled with love and laughter in Beloit, Ohio.

Marge retired as a bus driver with the Mahoning County Board of Developmental Disabilities and spent many years volunteering with their Special Olympics programs. Blessed with a loving personality, a sincere and limitless ability to care for others and a heart of giving, Marge made friends everywhere she went and seemed to gather people around her to be part of our family.

Marge is survived by her children, Carol McClish and Lee (Darlene) Iden of East Rochester, Paul Iden of Boardman and Son-in-Law Lewis Shafer of Alliance. Also living in a legacy of love are eight grandchildren, Arthur and Jason McClish, Timothy and Joseph McIntosh, Dan Iden, Deadra Iden Eichner, and Heather and Lewis Shafer; and 12 great-grandchildren with another arriving in August. Marge loved the Lord and is now basking in the beautiful sunshine of heaven surrounded by a host of friends and family Besides her parents, Marge is proceeded in death by her husband of 65 years Bud, daughter, Jodene Iden Shafer and brother Vernon “Mickey” McDonald.
