Marjorie Anne Von Frantzius
September 24, 1928 – August 7, 2018
Marjorie Anne Von Frantzius was born on September 24, 1928 the daughter of Harriet McDonald (deceased) and Peter Von Frantzius (deceased), beloved sister and best friend of Louise Bronoski (deceased), and sister in law to Daniel Bronoski; treasured Aunt to Christina Stanphill; and great aunt to Brianna Stanphill. Marjorie received her Bachelor’s Degree in Art from Mundelein College in Chicago. She had a very creative career in art which included Illustration and Cartography for Encyclopedia Britannica, and Denoyer Geppert in Chicago. Marjorie’s skilled artistic nature moved her to Denver, Colorado in 1990 where she won numerous awards in watercolor paintings, and was a member of the Aurora Artists Guild and Heritage Fine Arts Guild of Arapahoe County. Marjorie was one of the founding members of the Self Help for The Hard of Hearing, which later became Hearing Loss Association of America, Denver Chapter. Marjorie lovingly devoted years of dedication and services to the Hearing Loss Association of Denver supporting others with hearing loss. One of our favorite memories of Marjorie is at her nieces wedding. Although she could not hear the music very well she danced longer than anyone else. May she listen to all of heavens music and create God’s art forever in our hearts. Donations in memory of Marjorie can be made to Denver Chapter Hearing Loss Association of America c/o Bernard Steonberg, 1900 South Kearney Way, Denver, CO 80224-2307. A memorial Mass will be held in Denver, Colorado on Sunday, October 7th at Risen Christ Catholic Church. Marjorie will be laid to rest with her family in Chicago. Intermittent services will be private.

Marjorie and I had much in common, we were both from Chicago originally, Marjorie was in college in Lake Forest, IL. with one of my older sisters. Too, we both belonged to an alumnae group here in Denver.
For many years, five of us got together for lunch, much conversation and laughing! Those were good times. It was fun to know Marjorie and she will be missed.

I met Marjorie many years ago when we were both volunteering at the Botanic Gardens.
She was very dedicated to giving tours to children. When she learned of my hearing diability
she told me about HLA. I was a member for a long time until my health no longer permitted
me to attend meetings. She was always the best part of the meetings for me with her
wonderful comments. I was fortunate to see many of her beautiful water colors.

It was fun to get to know Marjorie thru the HLA group. She oftened asked questions and was the most inquisitive person in our group! I know I missed her when she stopped coming due to her health declining. I'm glad I got to know her.
