MOERSCHNER, Marjorie D. of West Newton on Oct 9, 2017. Daughter of the late Richard E. and Helen (Taylor) Moerschner. Marjorie attended the Buckingham School in Cambridge and graduated in 1949 from Boston University with a degree in education. Her father, an emigrant from Germany, owned and operated Morschner Dye Works, in Needham Heights. Marjorie spent some time teaching primary grades and later worked at Nutter, McClennen & Fish as a real estate title examiner. She lived in West Newton until 2014, when she moved to Brookhaven at Lexington. She also owned a home in Brewster and enjoyed her summers on the Cape. She traveled extensively and was active in numerous charitable organizations, including the Newtonville Garden Club and serving as a Deacon and member of the Legacy Committee of the Central Congregational Church in Newtonville and as a Deacon of the Second Church in Newton UCC, a driver until age 90 for FISH (an organization which provides transportation to medical appointments for elders), and as Secretary of the Middlesex County Prison Coordinating Committee, which supported education programs and other restorative services for prisoners. Marjorie is survived by many cousins in Germany and by Ortrud Koob, of Weston, MA, Inge Yarri, of Milford, CT, and Elizabeth Gibbs, of Middletown R.I. Her funeral service will be held on Sat Oct 14 at 1 PM in the Second Church in Newton UCC, 60 Highland St. West Newton followed by interment in Needham Cemetery.
