I met Marjorie at Instrumental Influence and she continued my knowledge of piano playing. I was really sorry when she left to live a while in KC. And I lost her as a teacher. I will continue to miss her as teacher. I hope her daughter inherited her talent. So sorry she's gone, she was a really good music teacher.

It just occurred to me that I hadn't heard about Marjorie's condition. I'm so sorry to see that she has passed. May your many wonderful memories console you and your family. She was a lovely woman, and someone I remember fondly.

Marji was my executive assistant at Missouri Baptist Children's Home. She was a very dedicated employee and was willing to do whatever it took to help accomplish our mission. She was a talented musician and we always enjoyed it when she played the piano during our chapel services. Truly a saint!

Marji and I both took piano lessons from Mrs Watts. We were duet partners at many piano contests. She was so much fun to have as a partner. Her piano skills were amazing. So shocked to see she has passed away but I'm sure she is tickling the ivories for everyone to hear.

Marji and her family lived next door to us as children. She was several years younger than me, but played with my youngest sister all the time. We loved her family and enjoyed having them as neighbors. They were a wonderful family. Reading her obituary gave me incite into what a beautiful person she had grown to be. I know she will be missed by many but is now enjoying the love and presence of God.
