Marge Ferguson of Paris, went to be with the Lord at 10:10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 10, 2020, at Pleasant Meadows Senior Living, Chrisman. We can tell you she was a beautiful 98-years young.

Due to COVID-19, private services are at a later date. Stewart and Carroll Funeral Home is assisting with arrangements.

 She always had a nice word of encouragement for everyone she saw, whether it was at the Dollar Store or the drive-thru at McDonald’s.

Mrs. Ferguson was married to Adlai Cleveland Ferguson, the love of her life since she was 16. They owned Paris Broadcasting Corporation which was the parent company to WPRS and WACF Radio in Paris and WBGR Radio in Paris, Ky. Mom always wondered if the ACF in WACF stood for All Country Format or Adlai Cleveland Ferguson, lol.

 She loved "Ferg," as he was called, especially his humor and joking around, but during the weekday he was all business. She supported her husband’s efforts in serving the community through local news, helping businesses succeed with radio, weather alerts and even obituaries on the air which were important to the listening audience.

Mrs. Ferguson had three daughters, Sandy (Dr. Phil) Wheeler of Springfield, Karen (Chris) Munson of San Diego, Calif., and Jan Lange of Elkhart, Ind., who were always amazed at how God smiles on her with good health genes.

She had five grandchildren, Faith (Steve) Harralson of Owensboro, Ky., Christian Lange of Carol Stream, Blake (Kasia) Lange of Chesteron, Ind., Nicole (Rob) Prinz of Dana Point, Calif., and Dr. Melinda (Tim) Pruitt of Santa Monica, Calif.; and seven great-grandchildren, twin boys George and Jordan, Madison, Olivia Joy, Ruby and Anthony.

She was preceded in death by two sisters and six brothers.

Mrs. Ferguson was a good friend, neighbor and confidant even though she couldn't keep a secret. You always knew that if you needed to talk to someone or just wanted to talk while driving somewhere, she was always available for anyone.

And if you got out of her house after a visit without leaving with a new jacket that didn't fit her quite right or bakery items someone sent her that she couldn't eat all by herself, we would all be surprised.

She always said, “If something doesn't taste good, it's probably good for you.”

Mrs. Ferguson was loved by everyone and was always approachable in Kroger, Wal-Mart, the Dollar Store and Goodwill or wherever she was.  She was always friendly. She will be missed by many.

She believed in God, led a life serving others and believed that she would be in heaven someday. She always tried to let you know you were important to her because you were.
