Marjorie was very patriotic and loved that her birthday was on Independence Day. She was a lifetime member of the Chalice Club of Nephi.
She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many responsibilities in the Stake and Ward Primary organizations. She especially enjoyed their mission together, serving in the Boston, Massachusetts Mission office and their success in searching for and teaching many interested in the Church. From 1991 to 1994, she served as assistant to the Matron in the Manti, Utah Temple. She was faithfully attending the temple until just a year ago.
Marjorie developed into an accomplished artist. Her home is adorned with many of her oil paintings, depicting the beautiful Utah landscapes she loved.
