The Lampe siblings, Sherry, Bonnie, and Andru, welcome you to the celebration of life and memorial service for their mother, Marjorie Collins Lampe. She was born May 1, 1929 in Fannin County, Georgia to Luther and Ellen Mae Weaver Collins. Marjorie resided with seven siblings, Lorene, Levada, Francis, Claude, Charles (Eb), Freddy, and Lulie, in Copper Hill, Tennessee during her childhood. The family relocated to Northwest Atlanta during her young years. Marjorie met her future husband, Stuart F. Lampe, when introduced to him by her sister, Levada, while he was attending Emory University School of Dentistry in 1950. After graduation, Dr. Stuart Frederick Lampe and Marjorie Ottisteen Collins were married on January 11, 1951. With a budding dental practice in East Atlanta, the ceremony was simple but unique and featured on the front page of the Atlanta Journal & Constitution. Stuart with Marjorie, at his side as dental assistant, were married in the office after a busy day seeing patients. Stuart’s military service in the Army in Heidleburg, Germany from 1953 to 1954 changed their life following the birth of Sherry lane Lampe in June of 1952 and Bonnie Sue Lampe in 1954. While residing in Buckhead and working as Dr. Lampe’s office manager, Stuart Andru Lampe was born in May of 1965. Marjorie always said they were “the oldest soccer parents, but it kept them feeling young” and Stuart enjoyed talking to all the children’s younger parents. Marjorie and Stuart worked together many years successfully and their biggest achievement was to build a retirement home on Lake Burton in Clayton, Georgia, which was accomplished with Stuart’s hands on ability of carpentry and Marjorie’s willingness to be steadfastly at his side no matter how hard, heavy, or difficult the task. When the days were not sunny in Georgia after retirement, Marjorie and Stuart spent time traveling and living in Kona, Hawaii. Their friendships and pool parties at Kahaluu Bay Villas were frequent and fun with many remembering Marjorie’s enjoyment of making pot roast and banana pudding! As a family, we liked to see them return to Atlanta every spring with a glowing tan. Marjorie pursued her lifelong hobby of antiquing and collecting. She enjoyed a decade of friendship and camaraderie organizing her booth at the Flea Market in Clayton, Georgia. She is survived by three children, Sherry Lampe Mather of North Port, Florida, Bonnie Lampe Owings of Roswell, Georgia and Stuart Andru Lampe of Clayton, Georgia. She is survived by six grandchildren, Lauren (Jonathan) Vejjajiva, Douglas Barrineau, Sally (Stephen) Chasteen, Taylor Owings, Davis Owings, and Reid McGown. She is survived by four great-grandchildren, Kai Vejjajiva, Rhys Vejjajiva, Emma Chasteen, and Harper Chasteen. Many thanks are also deserved to two wonderful sons-in-law, John Mather and Rick Owings.
