Marge Bong Drucker died last week at the age of 79 in Superior, but before she did, she lived three lives. While their marriage lasted only six months before he was killed testing a new jet fighter, it secured her a place in World War II history. Her picture flew with Bong on the nose of his plane as he became the most successful combat pilot in American history. Her second life involved fashion, modeling, publishing and motherhood as she married Murray Drucker and raised two daughters while traveling all over the world as a businesswoman.
