I am sad to report that Marjorie passed away last evening, November 5, 2010, at the age of 85.
She was born on October 5, 1925. Grandma wrote in her diary that day,

"My darling baby girl’s birthday. Had pains from 2 o’clock on, all morning but not strong enough to do any good till after 1 o’ clock. Had trouble getting Papa and held off as long as I could. He hadn’t been in the house two minutes till she came at 1:55. Gilbert had the company auto bring him in a jiffy and he was here perhaps 10 minutes. The boys are wild with joy. Such excitement and Collins, Papa and Winifred here after supper."

I am grateful to Aunt Marjorie who provided me with many comments on the entries in grandma's diary, adding tidbits of family history that none of us knew before.

  1. My sympathies to you and your family, Carol and thhank you for sharing the words of your grandmother with us.
    It must have been wonderful for Marjorie to know that her brothers were "wild with joy" at her appearance.
