Cousin Marjorie was very kind to us when we lived in Schenectady
with our family. Several times she invited us all to the camp on
Sacandaga Lake. She certainly was a repository of many family
stories and secrets. In Schenectady she and Howard lived just a
few blocks away from our apartment. Marjorie made sure that our
children, Amy and Jim, were part of Linda’s wedding at the nearby
Methodist Church. A very classy lady.
