MARJORIE BOYER BRANDENBURG CAMPBELL|
Marjorie Boyer Brandenburg Campbell, age 91, died September 1, 2010 at Sunshine Haven Home after a prolonged illness. Born March 18, 1919 near Damascus, Maryland, to Bessie May and William Asbury Brandenburg, Marjorie lived for 20 years in MD and D.C., for 34 years in Michigan, and for the remainder of her life from 1975 to 2010 in Texas.

Marjorie enjoyed her many years of work, first for the government during WWII, then in the insurance business in Michigan and Texas. She had great zest for her many hobbies and interests, including quilting, coin collecting, traveling, cooking, antiques, crafts, and good food. She loved her family. She enjoyed an unusually long, successful, and happy marriage for 64 years and she had a happy life.
She was a model of an independent, working woman when it was not yet standard.
Her family will miss her lively and sharp wit, her interest, and her love.
