  • Marjorie will be well missed in my life and everybody else’s. My mom and I would visit her at home all the time. Talk about a person that can talk your ear off,Marjorie could do that and more laugh out loud. I myself would go fishing at the pond in the back and also go hunting. Marjorie was so nice that she would give you the shirt off of her back for you. That’s why I love her so much. She’s the best aunt that I ever had. Love you Margie,miss you already.

  • My sympathy for you, Irena, Sue and John. Your Aunt Marji holds a dear place in my memories from when I was growing up. She and your Uncle Dick were always a part of our neighborhood get- togethers. Through the years, they and my parents would celebrate New years Eve together, learn to square dance, take us kids to East Harbor to swim and in later years they would meet in Delaware for lunch and catch up on news about us “kids”. You have many good memories too, of your special Aunt Marji She was a very dear woman and lived a happy life!

  • Irena, Sue and John. My deepest sympathies for your loss. I got to know Marjorie through the Meals on Wheels program and I came to adore her. I really enjoyed her company during my visits. She was the sweetest lady, I have ever known. She always game my two young boys each a piece of chocolate on every visit. She would insist that I even take some to them once school started again. She truly touched my heart and I am a better person for knowing her. Thank you for sharing her with us all.

    God Bless

  • I am so thankful to have had the privilege to get to know Marjorie during her stay at Wintersong. She looked forward to getting her hair done every Wednesday and we really became close friends. As her beautician she shared her whole life with me and I will always be grateful to of had her in my life. I said my goodbyes last week to her and told her I will miss her very much. We talked about how grand heaven will be and we both know that our goodbyes will be a hello again in His Kingdom. I am happy that Marjorie has been reunited in Glory to her family that passed before her. She was a kindred soul and I know her sight has been restored and she is pain free and in her new perfect body. I will miss you but in a blink of an eye…..we will be catching up again and you will even more divine stories to tell me!
