Dear sweet Marjorie - I feel so treasured to have met her and known her as a nursing colleague even if just in the last 15 years. She was such a joy and help to our board and members when our Rio Colorado Yuma Nursing Chapter 7 was restarted. I especially loved to hear her nursing stories! She had such a good memory and I loved her wit. She shared her American Nurses Association pin with our chapter from their nursing convention back in 1948 in Chicago. What a dear sweet woman! She will be missed. Marilyn Cox Whitenton, RN

It is so hard to say in a few short words about my Aunt Marje. She was always good to me, even when I was getting the measles at the age of 6. We went to the San Diego zoo for the day and she kept prodding me to keep moving. By the end of the day, she was calling me "Sunset" because I wasn't able to keep up. The next day, I broke out with the measles. She would remind me of that day even last year.

She never questioned any of my decisions regardless of the wisdom or lack of wisdom. She loved me unconditionally.

She would encourage me every time I saw her. At times, it was embarrassing, because of her over enthusiastic bragging of my abilities. Her encouragement and support meant so much to me. I have saved every note she sent to me and read and re-read them several times over the past few years. They were a priceless gift for me.

Our family loved her. She was like an icon for us. My younger sister, Kim, wore a doll's plastic bathtub on her head and said, "look, I'm Aunt Marge". Her hats were incredible! When she came to visit, we always knew some one was coming that we would love to be around.

As the years went by, she kept in touch with us. Her and Larry would make the trip to Illinois in that little pickup truck. When they returned, it was always loaded with "goodies" that they had found while going to garage sales with my mom and anyone who could fit in the station wagon. We would cruise the streets and find that "one special item" that we just couldn't live with out. The day would end with a trip to the local Chinese restaurant.

Aunt Marje loved Hummels. She carried a book with all the "Blue book Prices". Mom and her, and later Uncle Dan would search for that "one" that she had been looking for.

Aunt Marje loved her children and her grandchildren. I never heard her say anything negative about anyone of them. Sometimes, I wondered if they were really that great or if she was just getting old. They were and even though she was getting older, she was still bright and always "right on"

When she turned 90, those of us that were able, decided to surprise her for her birthday. I had not been to her house since I was 5. She cried until the next day and told me that she could not believe that we loved her so much that we would come for her birthday. We did and would again if we could.

My mom, wanted to go for her birthday because as she said "She is not just my sister in law, she is my best friend". Mom and dad both loved her for who she was not what she was.

Aunt Marje lived in the same house for most of her life. Maybe she decided that she wanted to go to her forever home when it became time to move. I don't know. I do know that she will never have to move again. She will leave a legacy behind that we will all remember.

I love you Aunt Marje, and I always will.
