Marjorie Brower Omholt, age 87, of Rancho Bernardo, California, passed away peacefully at her home with family by her side on April 20, 2012. Marge was a native New Yorker, born and raised on Staten Island, New York. She attended PS 41 and New Dorp High School. She worked at Exxon and later on Wall Street. Marge was very active at Christ Lutheran Church in Great Kills, Staten Island, and proud to call it her second home. Her most cherished accomplishment was raising her two sons, Paul and Peter. She was a devoted wife of Ralph Omholt for 53 years until his passing in 2003. That same year Marge moved to San Diego to be near her sons and grandchildren.|
Upon settling in Rancho Bernardo, Marge immediately joined the Lutheran Church of the Incarnation which again became her second home. Marge was active in the Quilt Club and Bible Studies at the church, making lasting friends. Marge always had a positive attitude even when she became ill and could no longer assume her daily activities.
Marge is survived by her son, Paul and his wife Aida of Poway CA; son, Peter of Los Angeles, CA; and grandchildren, Heba and Garett. She is also survived by her brother, Howard (Virginia) Brower of South Carolina; sister, Mildred (Charles) Grant of Arizona; as well as numerous nephews and nieces.
Memorial services and interment will take place on June 2, 2012, at 3 PM at the Lutheran Church of the Incarnation, Poway California.
Marge will be genuinely missed but her charm, wit and positive attitude will be forever remembered and live on in the hearts of her friends and family.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Lutheran Church of the Incarnation, 16889 Espola Road, Poway, California 92064.
