She was my cousin and worked at the Y more than 50 years! Many of you will remember Margie, as she was organist for our church in Farmersville over 50 years. She encouraged me to also work at the Y. I was secretary to Lou Cox and Harry Bradbury in the Physical Dept. While working there, I met Pep (Dick Poeppelmeier) who was helping out in the Boys Dept. He was a leader at Day Camp, and spent 5 years at Camp Kern, as well as teaching swimming, at the Y, participating on the swim team, gymnastics team, Leaders Club etc. When Pep brought a small snake back from day camp one time to scare me - I knew that he liked me. Ha. We've been married 64 years. Pep, Senior, was involved at the Y also, serving on various committees. We owe our long and happy marriage to cousin Margie." - Dr. Richard and Marlene Poeppelmeier
