Born May 15, 1925, Marjorie just celebrated her 98th birthday. She retired from Rochester Telephone Corp. with 40+ years of service as Executive Secretary to the President. Marjorie loved to travel in her younger years with her many friends and family, was an avid reader, an enthusiastic Buffalo Bill’s fan and really enjoyed going to the casino. But her greatest joy of all was her family, who she loved unconditionally. She was a pillar of strength for us all.
It became difficult by 2020 for Marjorie to care for her much loved home of 62 years and moved to the Village at Mill Landing. There she made many new friends and was very active in daily activities and events – especially Happy Hour. Thank you to her Mill Landing family for embracing her and the compassionate, loving care you gave her.
Marjorie was a devout Catholic and a lifelong member of St. Lawrence Church. She was the most kind, compassionate person you’d ever meet and will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
Marjorie’s Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, June 10th at 10 am at St. Lawrence Church, 1000 N. Greece Rd., Rochester (Greece), NY 14626. Private Interment in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to C.U.R.E., Childhood Cancer Association, 200 Westfall Rd., Rochester, NY 14620.
