Marjorie Ellen Holden was born on October 10,1923, in Erie, PA to Estella Marie Zohn and Wesley Edgar Holden. She was baptized on Oct 10, 1923, at the Kingsley Methodist Episcopal Church in Erie, PA.
Marjorie graduated from Strong Vincent High School in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1941. She worked with Doris Henderson at the Marine Bank in Erie, Pa., and met Norman Henderson, Doris' brother, at the wedding of Doris Henderson and Eugene Gredler. She and Norm were married on Oct 15, 1948 in Meadville City, Crawford, PA. They later moved to Columbus, Ohio. She and Norman had 3 children together.
Marje worked as a Legal Assistant for over 40 years, as a Trust Officer for First Interstate Bank, and volunteered for the Legal Aide Society. She was an active member of the Spice of Life Choir, and served as Director for the Optimists Club.
Her hobbies were genealogy, collecting oriental art and dolls, traveling, and doing volunteer work.
On the genealogy front, her cousin Willard Bidwell in a commemoration letter to Marjorie, stated..."Marjorie took on the genealogical mandate with a vengeance, doing whatever was necessary to ferret out the last iota of information. She will be remembered for being a stickler for accuracy and documentation, and for making contacts and taking long trips to fill voids, as in 1991 when she went to West Addison, Vermont to photograph grave stones of Fuller ancestors. During her relentless research she discovered a probable parentage of our great, great grandfather, Moses Fuller, husband of Beda Ball. Thinking publicizing would prove or disprove this supposition, Marjorie submitted it to Scott Bartley, author of Vermont Families in 1791. Her article is in his 1997 edition, Vol 2, page 86. At the time of her terminal illness Marjorie had compiled and was editing final copy of a history of the Ball family. For that and her contributions to Samuel G. Pancost: His Quaker Ancestry and Pancost, Fuller, Holden, Bates Descendants and for enlarging the Fuller-family data base, to be published later, we are her indebted beneficiaries. Willard Bidwell, December 29, 1998."
