Marjorie could light up a room with her smile and her uncanny wit. While volunteering at the Rappahannock General Hospital, we knew that she could organize our assignments, present a professional image and keep us out of trouble. On days that she would have rather rested in her comfortable home, when we were short staffed - she was there. After she "retired" from volunteering with the group, we could always look forward to seeing her at our socials and luncheons. She was VERY proud of her family and humbled by the outpouring of their love. May she rest in Peace.

Marjorie was such a force at Seconds Unlimited for many years, sharing duties with Ruby Abbott at the cashier counter. Her knowledge of the area, customers, local lore, etc. was beyond compare. The Northern Neck has lost a vibrant spirit. Best wishes to her family -- Missie Arenson
