Marjorie Olcott Tremayne was born January 11, 1934, and passed away on September 29, 2017. Marge was born at Langley Field, Virginia to Armand and Elizabeth de Rosset. As the third of four children to an Air Force officer, she found herself growing up in a number of locations coast to coast, along with Puerto Rico and Germany. The family eventually ended up in Portland, Oregon. While in Portland, Marge attended Good Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing, graduating in 1956. While there she met Ronald Winner Tremayne and they were married on April 28, 1956. They first settled in Portland where they became the proud parents of four boys: Ronald de Rosset, John Armand, James Milton and Jeffrey Dale. Work soon brought Ron and Marge north to the young community of Lynnwood, WA. While raising her sons she was a devoted room mother, den mother and football mother. She continued with her love of nursing by spending time volunteering at Stevens Hospital in Edmonds. In 1978 they moved to Concord, CA, where Marge continued to stay active in a variety of ways. One thing she cherished was being an active volunteer at Mt. Diablo Hospital. Here she spent time with the volunteer organization eventually serving as officer as well as a buyer for the gift store. Everywhere Marge went she built deep friendships and carried them all through her life. She never took friendship for granted and loved to remain in contact with those she held dear. Marge and Ron were married for 57 years when Ron passed away in 2013. She was also preceded in death by her son, Jeffery. Continuing her legacy are Ron and Robin, John and Amber and James and Mary. Of particular joy in her life are her 10 grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Nothing brought her more joy then spending time watching the young ones having free range of her house. A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Monday November 20, 2017, 3:00 at Saint Aidan Episcopal Church of Camano Island, WA. While Marge's passing on September 29, leaves a hole in her family's heart, we rejoice that she is once again holding hands with her husband and youngest son. "And He laid His hands on her; and immediately she was made erect again and began glorifying God. "
