Marjorie Lois Wright Galgay, 84
     SOUTH PORTLAND -- Marjorie Lois Wright Galgay, 84, of South Portland died Oct. 10, 2007, at The Cedars in Portland from complications of lung cancer, COPD and osteoporosis.
     She was born in Boston, Mass., on May 10, 1923, the daughter of Alexander and Marjorie Castilla Lowe Wright. She attended Watertown Schools, Class of 1941, and in her 50s attended the University of Massachusetts.
     Marge was a life long Red Sox fan, attending her first game with her father at age 6. She loved small children and helping others. Most of all she loved Maine, having spent her childhood summers at Goose Rocks Beach. In 1995 she moved permanently to South Portland to be near her daughter. She was the informal president of the Breakwater Condo Crossword Puzzle Club.
     Ever since seeing the pig races at the Cumberland County Fair, she became an inadvertent collector of all things pig. Marge was a homemaker and later a teacher at Headstart.
     She is predeceased by her brother, Robert Wright. She is survived by her daughter, Lois Galgay Reckitt and her life partner, Lyn Kjenstad Carter of South Portland; her sister, Dorothy Wright Weber of Wilmington, N.C.; her brother, Graham Wright of Lincoln, N.H.; and nine nieces and nephews; as well as many friends at Breakwater.
