Marjorie Erwin, 87, of Chico, received her crown of life April 11th, 2012. Born October 17th, 1924 in Pittsburg, PA to Edward and Minnie Kirchner, she was preceded in death by brothers, C.T. and Edward.

She enjoyed traveling up until declining health made it too difficult. She was a devotee of the music of the great composers, having been a member of a large chorale group as well as church choirs. She took joy in cultivating a variety of flowers in her garden, and in caring for the goldfish in her little pond.

She is survived by daughter, Anita Erwin of Portland, OR; son, Jay Erwin (Paula) of Oroville; grandsons, Andrew Erwin of Reno, NV, Brett Erwin of Portland, OR, and Matthew Erwin of Henderson, NV; two great-grandsons; eight nephews, and a niece; 12 grandnephews and -nieces; and many good friends new and old.
