Marjorie A. Kelner

Northville - Marjorie A. Kelner, 98, of Northville, Michigan, passed away peacefully on September 3, 2018. Marjorie was born on October 15, 1919 in Langdon, North Dakota. She relocated with her family to the Northville/Plymouth area in 1932 and graduated from Plymouth High School in 1937. After receiving her cosmetology license, she opened Margie's Beauty Salon in 1941 in downtown Northville. She operated her shop at the same location on North Center St. for over 40 years, and retired in 1983.

Marjorie was a parishioner at Our Lady of Victory Church in Northville for many years and often walked to services from the home on Grandview Ave. she shared with her Mother and Sister.

Marjorie and her sister, Lillian, were world travelers, visiting all fifty states, in addition to many international locales, including Rome,Japan, Switzerland, and Marjorie's favorite, Venice. She learned to drive at age 40 and was very proud of her first car - an original 1965 Ford Mustang. In later years, Marge, became an avid cross-stitcher and could often be seen in her "one-of-a-kind" sweatshirt designs. She loved yard work, along with shoe and bargain shopping.

Marjorie was a resident at Oakmont Retirement Center in Northville for the past 10 years and leaves behind many friends and fond memories of her time there.

Marjorie is survived by the family of her beloved brother, Donald Kelner, and will be lovingly missed by nephew Ward (Laurie Dowling) Kelner; nieces Andrea (Brian) Keefer and Julie Kelner; great nieces Emily (Jeremy) Whelan and Margaret Keefer, and sister-in-law Marilyn Kelner. She is predeceased by her parents Jacob & Nellie Kelner, sister Lillian Kelner, and brother Donald Kelner.

Marjorie will be interred at Holy Sepulchre Catholic Cemetery in Southfield, Michigan. The family plans a mass and private service at a date to be determined.
