Marjorie M. Bliss, 89, formerly of the German Hollow area passed away on Tuesday, December 29, 2020, at the Chase Memorial Nursing Home of New Berlin. Marjorie was born in Cortland, NY on September 28, 1931 the daughter of William and Bernice (Phenes) Beckwith. She grew up in the Sherburne area and was a 1950 graduate of the Sherburne High School. On May 12, 1951 in Plymouth she married Roger Bliss who passed away July 3, 2018. Marjorie and her husband made their home in No. Norwich for over 30 years. Together they operated their farm in German Hollow for many years. Over the years they took in many foster children and gave them a good home and upbringing. Throughout her life Marjorie had been a member of the Plymouth United Methodist Church, the No. Norwich United Methodist Church, the Sherburne United Methodist Church as well as the New Berlin United Methodist Church. She was also a longtime member of the Sherburne Grange. Over the years Marjorie had made countless wedding cakes which was a specialty of hers.

Margery and Roger were great people. I new them most of my life .They were my brother Eric's foster parents and through out my younger life Marge made cakes for various catering jobs I did. Then I had the opportunity to be a part of her care when she was a Resident at Preston Manor before moving to Chase Nursing Home. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this difficult time.

I have so many wonderful memories of going to the farm, riding Champ bare-back, playing in the hay mound, riding snowmobiles, and walking in the door and smelling my aunts homemade rolls. When they make rolls for lunch at the school I teach, I always think of my Aunt. All the dances I went to, and my uncle teaching me them all. I will cherish the memories that I have forever. Thank you for being a part of my life. Hope you and uncle Roger are dancing in heaven.

Marjorie and Roger were two great people in our lives. So much I could say, for several years they came to our place in western Colorado in late May/early June when our elk calved. Roger would mind the elk while I was working (he said that elk were like holsteins with different suits on) and Marjorie would bake like she was feeding an army. It took me several weeks to get back to my normal weight every year. Wonderful memories of wonderful people. Pam and Ed Bliss
