Marjorie Marie Lemcool
March 17, 1926 – February 26, 2019
Marjorie was born on March, 17, 1926, Marjorie passed away peacefully on February 26th, 2019 at Munson Medical Center. She graduated from Buckley High School in 1945. She married John Hiram Lemcool on February 14th, 1946. They had 4 Children, Clifford Lemcool (Jenell), Joyce Wright (Keith), Dallas Lemcool (Jeanette), Garry Lemcool (Kelly). They enjoyed 11 Grandchildren, and 16 Great Grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews. Marjorie enjoyed the fruit farm that they had, where they raised cherries and apples, and also raised beef cattle. Marjorie also was an avid hunter and fisherman as well as participated with many organizations and clubs for several years, such as the Buckley Old Engine Club, the Interlochen Women’s club, and so many more through the years. She volunteered for several of our local elections. She always was helping her friends and neighbors, her first sentences were, “What can I bring, or how can I help?” Her cookies and baked goods were admired and eaten by many. She loved traveling, and enjoyed gardening. Marjorie kept her mind young and vibrant by playing cards, bunco, reading romance novels, and working hundreds of puzzles. Her favorite passion, as well as ours, (Her Children and Grandchildren and yes even Great Grandchildren) was QUILTING, she designed well over 100 quilts, and had her family members were happy to help tie many of those quilts, it was always a cherished family time. All of those quilts were given as wedding gifts, baby gifts, birthday, graduation, and Christmas gifts, as well as donated as raffle items to help raise money for different organizations in her community that she cherished.
