Margaret Ann McInnis, a first generation Irish-American raised in Oakland, blessed with classical beauty and a sharp wit, met her partner of 61 years, Art Verge, at St. Mary’s College in Moraga, California. Margo was ahead of her time, a college girl in the late ‘40s. Art was unlike anyone the Liberal Arts major had ever met: A student-athlete enrolled in pre-law thanks to the GI Bill, and a member of the college swim team. Art lost his mother and sister at an early age and his father, a prominent Santa Monica attorney, in his teens. He signed up for WWII service, joining the Navy at 17. Art made her laugh. Margo fell in love and followed her heart to LA.
