What a dear friend we had in Marjie. We were close since adolescence, and her genuine goodness will forever be etched on my heart. I pray that she will be remembered for her deep compassion, unflinching faith, positive attitude and abundant love for everyone in her life.

We were so saddened to learn of Marjie’s passing and our hearts go out to all of you at this most difficult time. Our best memories are her contagious laugh and what a wonderful babysitter for Stephanie & Alyssa and also a great house sitter when we still had a dog. Please know we have you in sour thought and prayers

We worked together at the Granite Savings Bank years ago. She was just married and so happy to start a new life with Bill. Always a warm greeting for everyone who came through the door. Gone too soon. Such a light.
