Marjorie Rorrison Olmsted passed away January 8, 2018, at the age of 88. Born in Seattle, Marge graduated from Roosevelt High School as the class salutatorian in 1946, and graduated from the University of Washington in 1949.

She is survived by her four children - David (Marlene), Paul (Patty), Jan Fitzpatrick (Jim) and Richard (Teresa), nine grandchildren (Brian, Elizabeth Mulkey, Eric, Stephanie, Mike Fitzpatrick, Jon, Patrick, Joe Fitzpatrick, and Monica), and one great granddaughter (Anna Mulkey).
