Marjorie (Margie) and I met as camp counselors in New Hampshire fifty years ago. Although after a few years there were long periods during which we had little contact, a strong connection remained, and I like to think we picked up our friendship without difficulty, whenever we saw each other. I remember long, humor-filled conversations on many subjects. She was so well-read, and she seemed passionate and often even entertained by what she observed in life. I treasure our most recent visits, in DC and in NY. She was important in my life. I miss her.

A more thoughtful, open, and, yes, warm, cheerleader for students I could not imagine. Marjorie thrilled at imparting her best teaching tricks and, more importantly, learning from the wisdom of fellow teachers-becoming - graduate students in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at UMD. She was the best!

Beyond her brilliance inside and about the classroom, Marjorie was also a fierce intellectual, stirred by the passions of activism, and leavened throughout with generous humour. A good friend.

Long live her memory!

I am grateful to Dr. Venit for being a powerfully influential professor of my graduate program. My deepest condolences to her friends and family.

I took Dr. Venit's classes twice, first as a fresh MA student in 2001 and then as a PhD student in 2004. The second course I took with her on sexuality in classical art was the best and the most unforgettable class I had in my life, I was probably the only student in her class that had little knowledge of classical art and archaeology, but she was so encouraging and supportive, and provided tremendous help with my research papers and presentations. As a new international student in the program at that time, I was shy to talk in the class and tended to ask her questions (some of them were quite basic) via email. She always answered my emails with great patience and enthusiasm. When I decided to switch to library science after completing my PhD coursework in 2005, she generously wrote recommendation letters for me. Whenever I met her on campus, she always gave me a big smile. It was just like yesterday! I will always remember her encouragement, support and help with gratitude. Farewell, Dr. Venit!

Dr. Venit sat on my dissertation committee. She was so thoughtful, discerning, helpful and smart. I will always remember with gratitude her efforts on my behalf. Farewell Dr. Venit.

I was Marjorie's PT at Sibley hospital. I visited her in the ER on June 22 , and we spoke for an hour. I teased her about missing her PT appointment....and though ill she was still funny and courageous. I left her with tbe intent of visiting her the next day.....and was saddened by her passing. I will always remember her!
My condolences to her family and close friends.
