Marjorie Midgette Banks, Cape Hatteras, NC, 88, went to be with our Lord on Thursday January 27, 2011 at Pitt Memorial Hospital.

She lived in Norfolk 69 years before coming to live with her son in Frisco. She was the daughter of Joshua D. Austin and Elizabeth "Lizzie" Willis.

She was a homemaker, care giver and enjoyed her children and grandchildren. She loved the Lord with all her heart and shared him with everyone who would listen. She was a great prayer warrior and gave from her heart. She loved painting pictures of the island, singing and playing her harmonica with her son while we all sang along. One thing she truly gave her family was her love of Hatteras and we will keep her spirit alive in our hearts.

Surviving are one daughter, Jennifer Novak, San Antonio, TX; three sons, Steve Midgette and wife Laurie of Havertown PA, Gary Midgette and wife Catherine of Phoenix AZ, Robin Midgette and wife Jeanie of Frisco, NC; 10 grandchildren, Curtis, Jason, Hannah, Jonathan, Robert, Julie, Abigail, Nathanael, Jeana and Robbie; and seven great grandchildren.

Mrs. Banks was predeceased by three sons, Michael Midgette, Johnny Midgette and Howard Midgette all of Norfolk, VA; three brothers, Monford Austin of Hatteras, Barney Austin of Va Beach, VA, and Maurice Austin of Hatteras; and husbands, John Riggs Midgette of Buxton and Robert Banks of Norfolk.

The viewing will be held at Twiford's Hatteras Island Chapel on Monday at 7:00-8:00 pm. Friends of the family are welcome. Burial will be family only at the Quidley Cemetery in Buxton. Mrs. Banks was a member of the Hatteras United Methodist Church. Twiford Funeral Homes' Island Chapel, Hatteras, NC is assisting the family with arrangements.
