Marjorie Lee Chandler
April 8, 1922 – June 5, 2019
We celebrate the passing of Marjorie Lee Chandler from this life to the next. Marjorie lived to be 97 and lived and full and fruitful life. Her passing was gentle and easy as she transitioned from death to new life. She spent her last two years in assisted living at the Garden House of Anderson, SC where she was close to her daughter and family. There she endeared herself to the staff with her smiles, sharp wit, and kind words (and apologies when she got snappy). She is remembered as someone who showed her love by action, by doing. She was always doing things for her family and for others. Her children and grandchildren will miss her but carry on her legacy.
She was happily married for 66 years Russell Chandler Jr. who proceeded her in death by 10 years. They were devoted to one another. Marjorie served and supported her husband faithfully and with love until his passing. They spent their retirement years in Sun City Center, FL.
She was born April 8, 1922 in Cairo, GA to Alice and Will Lee. She is survived by her two children, Russell Chandler III (Maria) and Patricia Walker (Michael); six grandchildren: Ashley Chandler Chang, Alexzandra Chandler, Whitney Chandler, Christopher Walker, Daniel Walker and David Walker; six great-grandchildren: Hayley, Sydney, Claire, Logan and Lydia Walker and Bryson Holiday; and sister, Joyce Brookins. Funeral services will be held 11:00 AM Saturday, June 8, 2019 at Central Presbyterian Church in Anderson, SC; she will be buried next to her husband at the National Cemetery in Canton, GA.
