Perrysville, Ohio

The Lord called Marjorie Ann Root, 79, a special angel home on July 20, 2021, from a stroke at Sycamore Run in Millersburg. She was also very grateful for the care given to her at Colonial Manor for the last 6 years.

Marjorie was a huge Elvis Presley fan and was able to take a trip with family members to see Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee. She also treasured all of the other family trips to Columbus throughout the years and was a long-time member of the Baptist Church in Perryville.

She is survived by her sister Janet (John) Bricker of Perrysville; step nieces Becky Craft, Heidi Tamer, both of North Carolina, and Lori Sellers of Kansas; and their families.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother Ben Root, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

  • Janet and Family,
    I am saddened to hear of the passing of my friend Marjorie. I first met Marge when I came to work at Dale-Roy over 40 years ago. She was a positive person who enjoyed many things about life. She would always ask about others and tried to keep up-to -date with old friends. She was proud of her family and you all meant a great deal to her. It will always make me smile when I remember her kindness and warm spirit.
    My condolences to the family.

  • I felt honored to know her. She cherished her time at Dale Roy. She always spoke fondly of her family. She missed her brother, Ben, and her parents. She loved her sister, Janet, and nieces. Personally, her “Hi Sweetie” greeting towards me could always make my day.

  • dear Janet and family, I was Benny’s best friend. I have a lot of memories of Margie and Benny being together. He was her guardian angel and she was his. I know that Benny is smiling that big OL smile now that he has his Sis with him all my Love, Tom Whittemire
