Marjorie Phyllis (Johnson) Hood
2 septembre , 1922 – 9 novembre , 2019
Marjorie “Marge” Hood passed away peacefully in her sleep on Saturday, November 9, 2019, at the golden age 97. She was born on September 2, 1922, in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Marge was the daughter of Dr. Herman F. Johnson and Maude Johnson, and had one brother, Richard Johnson, all of whom preceded her in death.
Marjorie grew up in Omaha and graduated from Central High School, where she was voted most popular in her class. After graduation from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, she married Dr L. Thomas Hood. They were happily married for over 55 years until his passing in 2003.
She is survived by her children, Tom (Maren), Bob (Cheryl), and Don (Jenny). She had ten grandchildren: Brent, Brian, Charles, Emily, Haley, Josh, Kim, Maggie, Philip, and Richard; and 15 great grandchildren: Amelia, Annabelle, Avery, Bailey, Brady, Charleigh, Eisley, Grayson, Libbi, Logan, Madision, Malacki, Mason, Merci, and Scarlett.
Marge was a vibrant personality who was generous, gracious, and sensitive to the feelings of others. In early adulthood, she was active in the Omaha community and an avid golfer, at one time being Nebraska women’s state 9-hole champion. She loved to cook game birds which her husband brought back from hunting trips. Even into her later years, she was an avid reader and loved to discuss current events. In memory of her English teacher at Central High, she reveled in correcting her sons’ grammar.
She was a classy lady who will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
Memorial Service will be Saturday, December 7th, at 11:00 AM at the Crosby Colonial Chapel.
