Marguerite "Margo" Nowak (Addy), age 61, passed away peacefully Friday, July 7, 2017 at her residence in Surfside Beach with her loving family and friends by her side. She was born in Buffalo, NY to the late Amile and Catherine Addy.

Margo enjoyed spending time on a patio with her friends and family- sharing her light, love, and vodka lemondrops.
