Marjorie L. Haworth, 71, of Gillette, WY, formerly of Sheridan & Lusk, WY and Harrison, NE, died Sunday, October 13th, 2013, at her home in Gillette, WY. Marje was the daughter of the late William (Bill) Haworth and Maxine (Max) Haworth of Harrison, NE. She graduated from high school in Lusk, WY and received an associate degree from Barnes Business College in Denver, CO.
Marje spent most of her life living in rural areas, raising cattle, sheep, horses, and was an avid gardener. She had also spent time working as a home healthcare provider, commercial truck driver, mail delivery person, working for the Sheridan highway department, and running her own small business as a seamstress.
Anyone who knew Marje would always have something complementary to say about how talented she was and especially about what a hard worker she could be. Marje was tending to her small place south of Gillette until the very end, working all day Saturday and passing away early Sunday morning, living the last day of her life as she did every day before it.
Marjorie is survived by her 3 children and 4 grandchildren:
- Lori Lewis, son in law Ed Lewis, and grandson Cadin Lewis of Castle Rock, CO
- Boyd McMaster, of Northglenn, CO, granddaughter Brianna McMaster, grandson Jared McMaster, both of Cheyenne, WY
- Shaun McMaster, daughter in law Therese Morin, and granddaughter Teagen McMaster of Broomfield, CO
- Also survived by several siblings, nieces, and nephews.
Marje was preceded in death by another daughter, Kara Beth McMaster of Lusk, WY who passed away as an infant, as well as her brothers Keith, Robert (Bobby Joe) Benjamin (Benny) Haworth, father Bill Haworth, and mother Maxine Haworth.
She was loved by many and will be missed by all.
A memorial service will be held from 12:30 to 2:30, Saturday, November 2nd, at the Historic Plains Hotel, 1600 Central Ave, Cheyenne, WY 82001, (307) 638-3311. For those who plan on attending, please dress casual.
