Marjorie Geneva Curtis Konrad, 86, a longtime Clearwater resident, was born Nov. 30, 1926, in Grangeville to Riley and Iva (Schmadeka) Curtis. Surrounded by family, she peacefully passed away on Monday, Oct. 28, 2013, at her home.
Marge grew up on the Camas Prairie with three brothers, Delbert, Wesley and Vance. Her father, Riley, was Marjorie's role model of a truly unselfish and giving person. She attended a little country school called Rocky Point and graduated from high school at Kooskia. On Nov. 24, 1944, she married Ludwig (Luby) Konrad Jr. in Walla Walla. Luby and Marge began their life together near Harpster, farming and raising cattle. In 1968, they moved to Clearwater. They had four children, Gary, Linda, Rita and Janie. Marjorie was involved with raising the family, gardening and helping Luby with farm work. She was the typical farmer's wife, doing manual labor right alongside of her husband. She loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren!
For years she was a member of the Clearwater Grange and Rebekahs. You could always find her washing dishes at the annual "Groundhogs' Feed!" She enjoyed spending time at the family cabin on Newsome Creek. Hunting, fishing, riding four-wheelers and playing the piano were just a few of her enjoyments.
Marjorie was preceded in death by her parents, Riley and Iva Curtis; husband Luby Konrad; brothers Wesley and Delbert Curtis; son Gary Konrad; and great-grandson Robert Akin. She is survived by her brother, Vance Curtis of Bay City, Ore.; daughters Linda Konrad Hargens and husband Ray of Clearwater, Rita Konrad Bacon and husband Leonard of Kamiah, and Janie Konrad Agee and husband Bruce of Pasco; daughter-in-law Bonita Pixley Konrad of Clarkston; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
We will miss Marjorie's positive outlook, graceful manner, love and support.
The family wishes to thank the health care professionals and hospice nurses for their kindness and care throughout Marjorie's illness. A special "Thank You" is sent to Donna Straw, who has been such a helpful and caring caregiver and friend!
Please join us for a celebration of Marjorie's life at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Clearwater Baptist Church; viewing will be one hour before the service, with Pastor Bill Horn officiating and arrangements by Trenary Funeral Home. Burial will follow at the Clearwater Cemetery. A covered-dish dinner for family and friends will immediately follow burial at the Clearwater Lodge Hall. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Quick Response EMTs.
