Marjorie lived in Higgins Lake, Detroit, and then Grayling most of her life. She worked for the Grayling Chamber of Commerce and Cornell Realty. She was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church. Marge enjoyed her home on the Ausable River, time with her family, playing euchre at the Senior Center, eating out, playing games (especially Scrabble, Rummy, and Pinachle) and visiting with her many friends. She will be missed by all, but those who knew her best take comfort that she resides with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in Heaven.
