Marjorie Lee "Momma C" Cowan
July 31, 1939 - May 14, 2008
Marjorie was born in Kenedy, Texas on July 31, 1939 to Milton Edward and Anna Merle Hartsfield. She was the oldest of seven children. She met the love of her life, Kenneth Cowan and were married on March 1, 1958 at First Assembly of God in Kenedy, Texas and have been married for 50 years. To this union five children were born. Tommy, Johnnny, Martha, Adrian and Andrea.
After having lived in several places, they settled in Paige, Texas, and have resided there for 36 years. Marjie was known as "Momma C" and her door was always open. You have either seen her working or visiting with friends. Momma C kept busy making pies, pickles and jelly, and all from scratch. The joy of her life was her family and friends. Rolling out Christmas cookies and dying Easter eggs has been a tradition for "Granny" for 30 years. She took great pride in spending time with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. The only time the kitchen was closed was when she was gone fishing. There was never a recipe she didn't know, always having one in her head. If her hands were not busy in the flour or in the sink, they were patting a baby or patting you on the back.
She brought out the best in everyone she met , and she touched the hearts of those who knew her. She loved to joke, laugh, and go along with the pranks that were played, always having the last laugh. She was never at a loss for words. She is deeply loved and will be sadly missed and never forgotten.
