    Marjorie was a good friend to my mother, Tressie Hatcher, who always spoke well of her. I did not know your mother very well but have met her in the past. You have our condolences at her passing.

    I remember many times when I was younger, going with my mom to Marjorie’s house for her Stanley bingo parties. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time.

  4. Cheryl Jessie-Brooks says:

    I have such fond memories of Marjorie throughout my childhood on up even after I gor married and had my own children. She was a dear friend of my mother and they kept in touch often. I enjoyed going to her home on occasion to play Bingo or pick up Stanley items and I remember her house always smelled so good. She always made me feel welcome. The last time I saw her at the health care center, she did remember me and asked about my mom. She made a difference in my life and I’m thankful I got to know her and enjoy her friendship and the wonderful memories I cherish today. Thinking of Bill and the family today and in the coming days. May God bless you all and give you comfort.

She was a unique, beautiful, special lady that as fore stated I loved and respected . You all will always have my prayers for God’s comfort and guidance in your life.

    I am so sorry to learn of Aunt Marjorie’s passing. When I spoke to her a few weeks ago, I didn’t know how grave the situation was with her. I have kept in contact with her for some time with phone calls & visits until lately when health problems have kept me from visiting & is also as to why I can’t make it to the graveside services. I will miss her. My thoughts & prayers are with you & Sally.
