Marjorie and my mom Dorothy (first cousins) were—in their words—“thick as thieves”. They always had a good time. Marjorie had a famous wit and she loved to tell people how to navigate the Causeway. I have fond memories as a child of visiting her and my cousins. She was a gracious host and I just wish I had lived closer in my later years to enjoy her humor. My godmother will be missed by all.

My mother Mary Kilroy and I were saddened to hear the news. Margie had a great spirit and style. Just two weeks ago we had a good chat with her and her grandson after an evening of patriotic music. I loved her scarves and she was glad to relate tales about each scarf, such as the family member who had purchased the scarf during travels. Margie will be missed by her many friends at Poydras home. With affection, Maurya
