A strong and courageous woman in the Lord and in our hearts has gone from labor to rewards. Marjorie was a God-fearing woman, who loved God with all of her heart, mind, and soul. She was full of love, wisdom, and laughter. Marjorie truly loved God, family, and friends. God knew the time was too short for us, but long enough for her.
