Marjorie Elizabeth Hallquist Obituary
May 18, 1932 - December 27, 2017 Marjorie, 85, passed away peacefully at home in Seal Beach with her daughters, Susie and Barbara, by her side. Born and raised in Merrick and Jackson Heights, NY, she attended Hunter College and studied voice at Mannes School of Music in NYC. She sang in the choirs of St. Marks and St. Bartholomew's. After marrying Richard Alden Hallquist, they raised their daughters in Arcadia. Marjorie lived there for 50 years during which she worked in the executive offices of Robinsons-May stores. One of her great joys was singing in the Church of the Good Shepherd choir. She also enjoyed her association with the Monrovia chapter of P.E.O. Her last five years were happily spent in Leisure World, Seal Beach, with her faithful dog Noah. Marjorie was preceded in death by her husband Richard and is survived by her loving daughters, Barbara DeGroot (John), Susan Clothier and three beloved grandchildren, Matthew, Shelby and Kyle. She will be remembered for her love of family, deep faith, ever present sense of humor and unwavering sweet nature. Her family is forever grateful to Marjorie's loving and devoted caregivers, Suzie Lee and Martha Hernandez. A private family memorial celebration will be held. In lieu of flowers please donate to the local Humane Society or . "Love you to the moon and back mom..."
