Raised in Ingram Borough, she graduated from Crafton High School in 1944, and Montefiore School of Nursing in 1947.

    I’m grateful for the time we got to spend together during our extended visit in May 2019. I feel we really got to know and appreciate each other at long last. Rest in peace, Marjorie. You are always in our hearts.

    Aunt Marjorie lived a very long, full life and passed away in a peaceful way … a way that most people pray to experience for themselves and others, who are dear to them. Many prayers will be offered for her.
    May her soul Rest In Peace. Amen.
