Marjorie was a dedicated homemaker and farm wife. She worked alongside her husband farming and gardening. She loved flowers of all kinds, but her favorite were the bluebells that grow along the Piney River. She loved to cook and bake, always providing a delicious meal for whomever might be at their house for a visit. She produced many beautiful quilts and handcrafted items through the years. Some of her happiest memories were fishing and four-wheeler riding with Gene and the great grandkids. She enjoyed the rides in the snow the most.

Marjorie accepted the Lord as her Savior and was baptized as a member of the Rock Springs Baptist Church where she attended as long as her health permitted. Grandma Great will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Prescott Cemetery or the charity of your choice.

A graveside service for Marjorie was held Sunday, May 8, 2022, at 2 p.m. at Prescott Cemetery. Online condolences may be left at Arrangements entrusted to Fox Funeral Home.
