Marjorie Sears Starbuck In Memoriam
October 17, 1914 - December 1, 2010

In Loving Honor and Memory

It has been five years and still seems like yesterday that we were spending weekends going out to dinner and watching TV in our jammies together. You will forever be loved and have a special place in our hearts.

Marjorie was born on 10-17-14 and passed away in Northern California on 12-1-2010. She was born in Winifred, Montana and delivered by her father who was a physician. Marjorie spent the majority of her youth in Mexico and her schooling in both Mexico and El Paso, Texas while her father was a physician with the mining companies. She later moved with her family to Southern California where she completed her schooling. Marjorie then moved to Honolulu, HI and truly loved living the Polynesian lifestyle. She was actually living in Honolulu during the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Later, Marjorie settled in Southern California to be close to her family.

Marjorie moved from Southern to Northern California in the late eighties where she made her home in Palo Cedro. She assisted in having her new home built, including a lovely garden where she spent endless hours gardening and enjoying the neighbor's animals as they came up to her fence to visit. Marjorie's lifetime hobbies included sewing, gardening, photography, painting, antique shopping, and travelling. She had exceptional skills in painting particularly. She was an animal lover including her beloved Yorkshire Terrier Muffy. Marjorie also was a donor to many charities supporting women's health, animals, the environment and the Olympics.
