She is survived by her son, Clinton “Clint” Hall Rhodes of Midlothian, VA, her grand-dog, Mallorca of Midlothian, VA, and her sister, Jeanine Marks Carfagna of Vass, NC. She was born on August 6, 1950 to Thomas Dennard “T.D.” Marks and Lizzie Mae Gordon Marks in Richmond, VA. Her childhood home was in Warsaw, VA where she enjoyed her friends, animals, art, and playing sports. After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1974, she moved to Atlanta, GA to pursue a career in the fashion industry.

My Wife and I have known Marjorie for a number of years on our shopping at Publix.
Marjorie always had a helpful demeanor and welcoming smile.

As a Realtor, I always knew that Marjorie would have my Balloons ready and/or Flowers for Open Houses.

She always went the extra mike and was a quiet professional.

We will miss her!

I knew Marjorie from her years in the floral shop at the Publix on Johnson Ferry, where I bought many arrangements and plants from her. She was ALWAYS so nice to us, and always flashed that beautiful smile! The floral area was right at the front of the store, and she was always the first person there who we saw. I moved across county, but still went back to that Publix occasionally, always looking for her to say "hi", but had not seen her for over a year. She will truly be missed by the many that were fortunate enough to be the recipients of that smile when they came in the store!

I worked with Marjorie for nine years she was a wonderful lady . You could talk to her about anything and if you had a problem she had some advice or she would just listen to you. I really did care a lot for her. My condolences to her son and the rest of her family and friends. My God bless the family.

I worked with Marjorie from 2008 until she left in 2018. She was always so kind and always had a smile for all of her customers. Numerous customers have asked about her! My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family and friends. Heaven just received another angel!
