Marjorie enjoyed music and served as pianist at the Lewis Creek Baptist Church for many years, as well as a member of the choir, the Missionary Society and the Agape Sunday School Class. She served as secretary of her homemakers' club, was a 4-H club leader of the Washington Township 4-H Club and was active in PTA volunteer work throughout her family's school years.

Marjorie spent her life helping in may ways on family farms. She excelled at cooking, sewing and gardening, and was best known in the community for her pies, which she invariably contributed to school and church events.
For the past many years, she suffered the effects of stroke, but survived and recovered many times. She was thankful to the staff and friends she made at McKay Manor and Waldron Health and Rehabilitation Center and wanted them to know how much she and her family appreciated their kindness and care.
