of the circulation department at the Ogden City Carnegie Library. She served on the Pleasant

View Planning Commission, the Board of the North View Senior Citizens Center, and a 4-H

leader for many years.

served in many callings, her favorite, as a teacher. She was an avid genealogist. Marjorie was a

member of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and

Fidelis Literary Club.

(Don Powell), and Jeffrey(Jolene Bischoff). She is the grandmother of 11 grandchildren, and

37 great-grandchildren.
