Margaret Krarup's Story

Margie was born Jan. 29, 1927, in Grand-Mere, Quebec, Canada. Her parents, William and Dorothy (West) Bowden, originally of Glens Falls, N.Y., returned when she was 2, and raised her in Glens Falls. She attended Miss Hall’s School in Pittsfield, Mass., and Connecticut College.
Margie worked in New York City after college and then traveled to Europe in her early 20s, where she met Thure Krarup of Vallo, Denmark in Paris.

Together, they operated The Gallery and raised their family at 120 Bay St. Margie was a Glens Falls Hospital Guild volunteer and a docent at the Hyde Collection.
Upon retirement, Margie and Thure moved to Pezenas, France, and began the restoration of a 350-year old home in an exciting new life. Thure died in August 1996, but Margie remained in
France for 12 years, enjoying her busy life with new
friends and travels. She moved back to the U.S. in 2008, to be near her children and grandchildren.
