Marji, Morrie and I traveled tens of thousands of miles together on motorcycle trips. Often there were other riders with us but always there was the three of us. Marji was a sister to me, hosting and caring for me on my many trips to Minnesota during my 20 year retirement in Texas. When Barb and I finally settled in Wisconsin last year Marji was among the first to welcome us back north. A few days before her passing she stopped by and dropped off pictures of Barb and I with her and Morrie on a couple of motorcycle trips. It was the last time I saw her in this life, she was her usual vibrant self and that's how I remember her.

I was shocked to see this. I will always remember her as a person who was a caring and compassionate leader and took time for anything you needed help with. I will always be thankful for her help in work that needed to done and problem solving during the time I worked at the Mn VA.

Marj was always the most kind to Roxanne and I and was always the consummate lady. We will never forget her great laugh and her ability to ride that Harley. She was so sad when she decided to quit riding.

I have such fond memories of dear Marj both in and out of work. We used to walk in the neighborhood of MPLS VA for lunch time with Kevin Roberts and Bob Reynolds. She was a great confidant for me when I was NM while Kevin was away at Desert Storm. She was so wise, loved to laugh and enjoyed life. I always thought of her when I heard Neil Youngs 's "On a desert highway she rides a Harley Davidson 🏍 " Marj is now in the heavens riding the clouds. Gone too soon. A reminder of how precious life is. I was honored to be your friend.
Love you Marj.

Dear Morrie, David, Dena and Markie,
I was shocked and saddened to hear about Marj. She hired me at the VA and our offices were next to each other, so we talked often about her trips with Morrie and her pride in both her kids. She and Morrie visited us at Stone Lake during Cranberry Festival. Last time I saw her, she was so excited to become a grandma. She was a great boss and a great nurse: practical, smart and kind. Her picture captures her beautiful smile so well. I am so sorry for your loss. ❤️

I knew Marj for over 30 years thru her relationship with the love of her life, Morrie Anderson. We spent many years riding together in different places throughout the United States. She was a confidant, great friend and wonderful person. Cheri and I will miss her warm smile, funny personality and true devotion to her friends and the Blue Knights.
