M. Marjorie Moon was one of 4 children born to George B. Smith of Indiana and Clara Ellen Peer Smith of Kansas. Marjorie was born in Colorado as her parents emigrated out West. Marjorie later helped her parents run the SeaSide Cafe, a family owned business that operated on the Long Beach Pike in its heydey.

Marjorie married twice, first to James Wray Moon and then to his brother Cecil Burdette Moon. She had 5 children, of whom 3 survived infancy, James, Marjorie May, and Mildred. Her daughter Mildred (Mickey) Olsen gave her 9 grandchildren whom she cherished.

Majorie and her husband Cecil Burdette Moon owned a homestead in the high desert very near the present day site of the Lancaster/Palmdale airport. Marjorie lived most of her adult life in the Los Angeles area, and witnessed the forced internment of her Japanese-American neighbors in Norwalk, CA, after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Marjorie and her daughter Mickey stayed with her parents in Bellflower, CA, throughout WWII. Marjorie, like many women of her generation, went to work in the aircraft factories around Long Beach, CA. She enjoyed life in downtown Los Angeles after retirement.

Her memory will always be cherished by her grandchildren Joe Jr., Bob, Marilyn, Dan, Tim, Mary, Brian, Kathy and John.
