Marjorie loved the Lord her God and was a faithful servant. She was a member of the Jacksontown United Methodist Church, serving as the first female trustee chairperson as well as being choir director for the Chancel Choir for several years. She was a LPN and spent many years working at Licking Memorial Hospital and for Dr. Richard Walters. Taking care of others was a great passion in her life and she always had a tube of “magic salve” on hand for her grandchildren’s boo-boos. She was a member of VFW Post 1338 and Order of Eastern Star.
