Marjorie was the oldest of 5 children, and had a challenging life growing up on a farm. Marjorie attended Ione grade school, and graduated from Platteville High School in 1946.

Marjorie was a member of the greatest generation, and had recalled being impacted at 13 years old, when Pearl Harbor was attacked.

Grandma, I will always remember you being a picture of elegance and grace wherever you went. I have wonderful memories of spending summers with you and grandpa in Montana on Flathead Lake. Eric and I would go swimming and get swimmers itch and you would slather us with Calamine Lotion and feed us homemade ice cream. You and grandpa had a boat in Montana and would take Eric and I fishing. We had so much fun. You always made wonderful food including pies, and had whole milk to drink in the fridge. We played a ton of Yahtzee and Uno, which I now enjoy playing with my own kids. We would watch your “Stories”, (soap operas), and then play games again and again. We didn’t have to go anywhere or do anything in particular to have fun. When Eric and I were little, you would bring us pudding in your purse. We always looked forward to that treat. You were also the one that took me on my very first airplane ride from Denver to Montana. In later years, Eric and I would ride the airplane on our own to Montana to visit you and grandpa, and you would be standing right at the door as we got off the plane. With your arms crossed and purse hanging over your arm eagerly waiting for us, and for sure not going to miss us walk by.
You were always there for graduations, weddings, and other big events. Plus, you were always there to lend an ear and listen. I will always remember you being a very important, close, and formative person in my life and I thank you for that. Thank you for all the fun chats, laughs, fun, smiles, and most of all love. I miss you but I’m glad your home. Love you and see you soon Grandma.
With all my love Gretchen.
