MANCHESTER - Marjorie Bullis Bergeron, 89, of Manchester, died peacefully surrounded by her family in the early hours of Dec. 11, 2012. She left with the same grace and style she had exhibited during her life.
The Guest Book is expired.
Loved by many, she will be missed by all who knew her. Marjorie recently told two of her friends, knowing it was the last time they would be together, "It's been a fun ride!"
She was born Nov. 17, 1923, in Roscoe, N.Y., to Floyd "Pat" and Mildred (Biffar) Bullis. Marjorie was active in theater and music groups through high school and beyond. After graduating from Ilion High School in New York, she joined the U.S. Navy and achieved the rank of Yeoman 2nd Class, Naval intelligence, during World War II.
Marjorie's love of music led her to become a vocalist with a military band. It was there that she met her future husband, Roger M. Bergeron. After the war they were married in Ilion on Aug. 31, 1946, and moved to Manchester. As their life journey continued together, while raising their three children they both continued to perform in many local plays and theater groups, choirs and bands.
Her love of God led her to become an active member of her church and many church-related organizations, as well as church secretary. Marjorie wrote the church newsletters for many years and continued to volunteer in many community activities at Birch Hill Terrace as long as she was able.
She loved to travel and spend time with her family.
Beyond all she accomplished, her strength, loyalty and ability to enjoy life, her love of God and family are her living testaments.
Marjorie is survived by her son, Jon Bergeron and wife, Ann; her daughter, Patti Bergeron Michael and husband, Gary and her daughter Jill Bergeron Holland; granddaughter Angela Bergeron; three grandsons, Jed Michael, Nathan Michael and Michael Bergeron; two great-grandchildren, Charlie Michael and Elana Michael; her brother Richard "Oop" Bullis; her sister-in-law Pauline Heckathorne and many nephews and nieces.
She was predeceased by her husband, Dr. Roger M. Bergeron on Oct. 12, 2005 and two brothers, Doug Bullis and Ray Bullis.
