Confession time: I have never watched The Simpsons. But - being that the iconic cartoon has been around for decades, I am aware of the show and the character names. But I didn't know that one of the principal characters - Homer's wife Marge - was from Chisholm. Well, maybe not her ink-drawn self - but her namesake - the mother of creator Matt Groening. Margaret Groening passed away April 22nd in Portland Oregon at the age of 94.
