Marjorie was a faithful member of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Centralia where she served as a member of the choir, and on the finance committee. She valued education and was a strong supporter of Trinity Lutheran School in Centralia, volunteering for PTL. She was blessed to work alongside her daughter, Kelly, serving as bookkeeper for her daughter’s shop, Kelly’s For The Occasion in Centralia. Marjorie was an amazing cook and baker whose family and friends looked forward to enjoying her famous Christmas cookies every year. She had a great sense of style and would never be caught with her shoes not matching her outfit. Marjorie was an avid baseball and basketball fan, always cheering for the Chicago White Sox and being a huge supporter for the Centralia Orphans’ and Christ Our Rock’s basketball teams.  Marjorie had a great, witty sense of humor and could easily bring a smile and a laugh, brightening any room she walked into. She was a loyal friend who shared 40 year friendships, enjoying get-togethers with family and friends on their annual houseboat trips, earning them an article in a national magazine. Marjorie will be remembered for her “can do” attitude, her perseverance and ability to face any obstacle with courage and grace, for her beauty, inside and out, and for her love for her family.
