Marjorie was a passionate person. She loved cooking and sharing her special recipes. She had a special place in her heart for caring for all of God’s creations, especially animals. She was a devout woman who enjoyed spending time with her church community. She was a present person in the lives of those who loved her. She was a caring, loving, and supportive wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandma, great grandma, sister, aunt and friend. She was loved tremendously and will be missed dearly until we see her again. For our hope is in Jesus' Words:
So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
