Marjorie loved life and brightened the day of everyone she met with her spunky personality. She spoke fondly of her life in Millersburg, Ohio where she lived until her move to Brown County in 2001.

Marjorie was a 40+ year fan of Days of Our Lives and a fan of the Chicago Bears, Jeff Gordon with NASCAR & golfer Phil Mickelson.
