OBITUARY

Marjorie Mae Rowland

August 18, 1927March 29, 2018

Marjorie Mae Rowland, of Hamilton, went to be with her Lord on 3/29/18. Marj was born in Hamilton on 8/18/27 to Marguerite and John Dingeldine.

Marj was a proud graduate of Hamilton High and faithfully attended get-togethers with her fellow ‘46ers. Marj worked at Russell’s Dress Shop as an accountant and in sales. Marj was an avid walker and loved working in her yard. She loved spending time with friends playing cards and having a drink. Marj lived at Westover Retirement Community for the last 6 years. Because of the time she spent in each area of the facility, we have come to know a lot of the staff at Westover and would like to extend our warmest “thank you” for your care of “Nana” over the years! She was a member of First St. John UCC for many years, and most recently had been attending Grace United Methodist Church. She married Robert Rowland on 11/5/55. Marj was preceded in death by her husband Robert Rowland, her mother Marguerite Jones, her son Daniel Rowland, and her grandson Christian Henderson. She found a wonderful friend in Eldon Burns. He was able to bring happiness and several trips out west, until his death in 2017. She is survived by her two daughters Betsy Morgan and Donna (Greg) Henderson, and a half-brother John Dingeldine. Marj has four grandchildren, Melissa (Russell) Gettler, Adeline Morgan, Anna Rowland and Noah Henderson, and 2 great-grandchildren, Braylon and Brooklyn Gettler. In lieu of flowers, a Memorial Donation can be made to Grace United Methodist Church, 1200 Main St., Hamilton, OH 45013. A Celebration of Life will be held at 11am on Saturday 4/7/18 at Westover Activity Center, 855 Stahlheber Rd., Hamilton, OH 45013 with Pastor Randy Stearns officiating.

Donna & Melissa... sending prayers for each of you and the rest of your family.. Always will remember Mrs. Rowland (as I always called her) smiling, never saying a cross word to anyone (except when she had to get onto Danny)

We knew Marj at First St. John UCC. She was a lovely lady and was always
smiling. When ever I would sing a solo (Karen) during the service,she would always compliment me later. She loved hearing the music from the choir .

Dennis and I send our sincerest sympathy to her family.

Donna, I loved seeing your Mother and Eldon at the club. What a really sweet couple. Her eyes always lit up and her smile infectious whenever I mentioned that we worked together. She loved you so much and would always talk about the special care you gave her through the years. In addition, she would always mention how sweet you are!
Donna, on this Holy Day of Easter I am praying for you and your family for peace and comfort from Our Lord in the loss of your Mother. I am so thankful she is not suffering anymore and will be praying for you and your family from Heaven. I know she will be waiting to greet you someday....
Take care, Tim.

Nana always had a smile on her face and could brighten any day. She loved to go barefoot morning, noon or night. She will be greatly missed.
