Marjorie Lorig Leventry

Marjorie Lorig Leventry, 73, of Athens, GA passed away Saturday, August 3, 2013.

Born in Columbus, OH, and a longtime resident of both Peoria and Chicogo, IL, Marjorie was the daughter of the late Clarence H. Lorig and Esther Cartzdafner Lorig. A graduate of Cornell University, she was a Registered and Licensed Dietitian who worked with both healthcare and academic organizations, teaching at the college level for over a decade. She was a Peace Corps volunteer in Ecuador from 1993 to 1996, developing programming in pre-natal and childhood nutrition. Upon returning to the United States, she and her husband, Robert, founded Inca Organics-a social business working with indigenous Ecuadorians to perfect organic farming techniques, raise heirloom grains, and to distribute their fair-trade products in global markets. Their work was recognized with the Slow Food International Award for Biodiversity in 2002. She was a member of Emmanuel Episcopal.

Survivors include her husband of 51 years, Roy Robert Leventry of Athens; daughter, Ellen E. Leventry of Ithaca, NY; son, Richard L. Leventry of Hoover, AL; brother, Bruce C. Lorig of Seattle, WA, and grandchildren, Kathryn Leventry, Jack Leventry, and Joe Leventry.

Memorial services will be held 11AM Thursday, August 8th at Emmanuel Episcopal Church with Father Robert Solomon officiating. A reception will follow the service in the Common Room.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The Cancer Foundation of Northeast Georgia, P.O. Box 49309, Athens, GA 30604; the Canary Foundation, 3155 Porter Drive, Palo Alto, CA 94304; or to Emmanuel Episcopal Church, 498 Prince Ave, Athens, GA 30606.
