  • I feel so blessed to have visited with Marjorie for several weeks during the summer and fall of 2011 when we brought Holy Communion to her. She was a delightful woman, a wonderful conversationalist, and just a beautiful Christian woman. You are in my prayers. Peace and all good.

  • I’m very sorry for your loss. Mrs. C was one of the kindest, loving, and giving people I know. She helped me when I was down on my luck, and I will never forget that.

  • I remember grandma to be sweet,loving and kind to everyone. Anytime someone needed something…she was right there for matter what. Her voice was soft and genuine and everytime i talked to her i was in a better mood. My memories of her will stay in my heart forever and i will never forget her laugh and smile. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. God did a wonderful job when he created her. I love u grandma….forever…

  • Marjorie Jean Simmons Cutarelli was my mother.
    I will carry her with me until the time I also will have to leave.
    Marjorie was a smart and kind mother not only to me but to all of her other children.
    I would talk to my mother most every day in the latter days of her life. I would call her on my breaks at work. Cell phones made that more convenient. We would talk about almost everything. I asked a lot of questions about what she did and what she liked when she was a child.
    She would talk about her children and how much she loved everyone of them. She would talk about what they were doing and how proud she was of each and every one of them.
    She would talk about her grandparents and her two brothers. How she used to go to grandpas house on the farm and help with the three cows there.
    We would talk about how she would watch her dad work on the well that was in the cellar under their house.
    Marjorie also talked about her grandchildren. She had a lot of them also. But her heart was large enough to hold love for every one of them.
    Mom talked about the friends and neighbors she knew and talked to. I did not know all of them but I listened to her. Sometimes she would ask me if I was still there and I would say [YES. Continue on.] Mom would talk about her love for god also.
    Now I have no mother to call at my breaks. No Mother that will listen to my cries of complaint. No mother to comfort me when I cut my finger. I am just being selfish.
    I also know that I am not the only one that misses Marjorie. I am sure that each of us has our own way of missing her. And with each thought a small tear of loss drops from our eyes.
    Each tear holds strength. and with each tear we get stronger.
    Mother also cried for she was leaving us as well. She did not want to go, however she had another calling. And now that she is where she is now, she is happy. Marjorie is making new friends and meeting up with her family that has gone before her.
    I am no longer sad that she is gone but rather happy that she is with loved ones in another place. I will miss my mother. That woman named Marjorie.
    Marjorie Jean Simmons Cutarelli was my mother.

  • My grandma was such an honest and loving lady. There is not a day that goes by that I dont think about her. She was always there for me when I needed her the most and for that feel lucky. Many days I would ride my bike over to her house across town just to catch up wirh her. I could not have asked for a better grandma.
