Marjorie will be missed and never forgotten for her love and service to others. She loved basking in the pleasant warm morning sun on her front porch swing. She enjoyed the country living environment. She was a longtime fan of Bluegrass and Celtic music. An etched wonderful memory, for all who knew her was kicking up dust while clog dancing to a favorite Bluegrass song. She loved reading books and studying her scriptures. She had many God given, self-taught talents, making beautiful colorful quilts, and beautiful crochet craft items. She shared her talents with her children, grandchildren and great grand-children. She always had a welcome open door to family, friends and those in need. She was known for her wonderful homemade breads, pies, cakes and candy. No matter how many visitors, she was able to set an elaborate and abundant feast on her table.
