Marjorie had a passion for life and a thirst for learning which was never quenched. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and aunt to many, yet she found a special way of establishing a unique and personal relationship with each of us. She was a strong, caring, and selfless mother that taught her children her values, lessons, hopes and dreams. She was willing to challenge herself to try new things and gained many new experiences. She was a good cook and enjoyed preparing family meals. After retirement, she liked to go on road trips with her sister and nieces to the casinos and she frequently traveled with her husband to visit their children, other relatives and to see new places.
Marjorie was a lifelong resident of Kokomo, Indiana, an active member in her community, and a dedicated servant of the Lord. Since early childhood, one of her greatest passions was her service to the Lord as an active member of Second Missionary Baptist Church. She served in many ministries and on several committees, including Ruth Circle Missionary, Culinary Committee, Decorations Committee, Nursing Auxiliary, Sewing Guild, Church Anniversary Committee, Pastor's Aide and Senior Connection. Marjorie even found the time to serve her community as well -- Lifetime Membership and former local officer of the NAACP, former board member at positions with Carver Community Center, and UAW (retired).
