Marjorie Edgar Obituary

Marjorie Edgar, age 85, went to heaven Friday, December 12, 2014.

She was born September 26, 1929 to Levaur and Susie Farnworth of Biggs, California. She spent her childhood in the country developing a love for horses and nature. She graduated from Biggs High School in 1947. She was married to Vincent Gene Fieth in 1947 and had two children, Vince and Darlene. Alongside her husband and children, she drove tractor and irrigated and harvested walnuts at their orchard in Meridian, California for many years.

A change of direction brought her to Cal-Trans in 1957 where she diligently worked her way up to the position of delineator using CADD machines for highway drawings. She was known for her precision, reliability and caring for her fellow workers.

Marjorie married Joseph Edgar in 1974 in the Oakland LDS Temple. Marjorie gave many years of service in the LDS church including an 18 month mission in England and then later a second mission with her husband, Joseph Edgar, in Wyoming at the pioneer monument known as Martin's Cove. Marjorie and Joe joyfully went backpacking and trout fishing well into their seventies.

Marjorie is survived by two brothers, Gene and Glen Farnworth. Other survivors include her son, Vince Fieth; daughter, Darlene McLaughlin; seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

A memorial service celebrating Marjorie will be held Monday, December 22, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. at the LDS Stake Center, 1470 Butte House Rd., Yuba City, with the grave dedication afterwards at Sutter Cemetery. Services are under the direction of the Ullrey Memorial Chapel.
