6/18/1953 - 10/20/2013
With great sadness we said goodbye to our Little Marjie after her struggle with cancer. She fought hard. This was never more apparent than her final months. She will now join her husband; Mr. Stevens who will be waiting with open arms saying “welcome home mamma, I’ve been waiting for you!”
Marjie was born in Van Nuys, CA, but at an early age her father moved to Surprise Valley, OR, where she spent more than half her life. Also where she passed and will be laid to rest. Marjie’s most fulfilling part of her life was her three sons and her grandchildren, whom she loved, loved, loved.
Marjie is survived by her sons: Shane (Noamie), Shawn, and Sheldon; her grandchildren; father, Frank G. Cullett (Salina); mother, Madelyn Cothran; sisters: Diana (Michael); Dolores; Judy; brothers: Frank (Amy) Robert; and Ralph; and many nephews; nieces; aunts; uncles and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, “Mr. Stevens”and step mom, Joann Peterman just last year. Her nephew, Eric whom for our family the memories of that day are still vivid, the pain acute! Our family will NEVER forget them.
Marjie was compassionate, a great listener, and had a huge heart. We are all devastated to lose such a kind, strong, opinionated, spirited, often stubborn, but always loving soul.
A celebration of her life will be held at her sister, Diana’s home in Surprise Valley, on October 24, 2013 at 1 p.m. Please call 541-839-4348 for more information.
