Marjorie I. “Marge” Carlin

June 15, 1925 ‒ January 25, 2018

Bellville, Ohio

Marjorie I. “Marge” Carlin, 92, of Bellville passed away on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at the Waterford in Mansfield surrounded by her family. She was born on June 15, 1925 in Knox County to late Noble B. and Florence L. (Hookway) Snow.

Marge was a devoted mother who loved spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchild.  She was an excellent cook and spent countless hours preparing food for the neighbors in need of a hot meal.  She and church members organized funeral dinners for the Palmyra Church over many decades and “ran” the kitchen there for numerous church dinners and activities.  If help was needed, she was the one to call.  Marge left a lasting impression on all that she met.

In her younger years, Marge was involved with the Fredericktown Mother Club and enjoyed bowling in a Trio Lanes league.  She was a sales clerk for Ringwalt’s in Mount Vernon and was a secretary for Howard Jewell for five years.

After Bob and Marge moved to the family farm on Leedy Road in 1950, Marge helped out with the animals and did many farming chores.  She looked forward to preparing delicious family meals for Christmas, Thanksgiving and many other holidays for many years until moving to the Waterford Assisted Living Community in Mansfield in 2016.

Marge is survived by her children, Robert (Diana) Carlin of Bellville and Debra Carlin of Mansfield; grandchildren, Joel (Chelsea Hershner) Carlin of Gig Harbor, WA and Zac Carlin of Bellville; great grandson, Carter Carlin; sisters, Nora Mae Wilson of Fredericktown and Elaine Hillier of Fredericktown; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Marjorie was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Robert Carlin in 2012; sisters, Nettie Snow and Beulah McCormick; brothers, Harold, Lamont, Hubert, Sam, Noble Jr. and Roy Snow.

The family will receive friends from 2-5 PM on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at the Snyder Funeral Home, 33 East College St., Fredericktown, where a funeral service will be held at 10:30 AM on Monday, January 29, 2018 with David Couch officiating. Burial will follow in Shauck Cemetery near Johnsville.

Our special thanks and gratitude to Kindred Hospice and the wonderful staff at the Waterford.

  • My deepest sympathy to the family, but what a wonderful legacy this beautiful lady left. Heavens gates have opened wide to welcome home another Saint. Marjorie was such a beautiful person, with a smile and cheery disposition that would light up a room. She was always there to help and encourage others. She will be missed by those of us left behind, yet I rejoice in her victory. Prayers to the family at this time.

  • Sorry for your loss. Actually, your loss is also a loss for all of those of us who knew her. I know she was one of Carmon’s favorite people, too. She touched so many lives through her association with all the things she was involved with at Palmyra, as well as the life she lived helping others. She always wore a smile and always was interested in how others were doing. You were very blessed to have her as a mother. Hugs and prayers.

  • To: Carlin Family
    What a wonderful Christian lady who served God in so many capacities. She will be missed here on earth but we are encouraged by Margie’s wonderful Christian example and look forward to being with her in the heavenly realms.

  • As a child, whenever we traveled to the farm from New Jersey or Virginia, Aunt Marge always said “what are you guys doing here?”. She always had our favorite foods on hand even tho she was “surprised”. So many wonderful memories from my childhood involve the farm and Aunt Marge.

    She worked harder than anyone I every saw yet she always had a smile for everyone.

    She will be greatly missed.

  • Marge was a special lady. My brother Gary and I used to spend a lot of time at the family farm and then later nearby with her mother-in-law. I fondly remember Marge’s cooking, the homemade butter, and homemade mayo. I still have and use the recipe for her homemade mayo when I make potato salad. She was always busy taking care of other people.
