Dave and family I am so sorry for your loss. My parents ( Rich and Elaine) considered ur Mom and Dad their best friends. They had so much fun together back in the day in Pennsylvania and I did as well. They were both wonderful, precious people whom I loved dearly. We became close over the years and I will miss our talks. She was a great comfort to me during the loss of my Mom and Sister and for that alone I will always be grateful. Rest in peace Marj till I see u again in our heavenly home - praise God!

Oh Family! We are so very very sorry for your loss. Your mother was such a wonderful women. And your parents were my parents best friends! Oh the thousand memories that come to mind. But the ones that stand out more than any are the many times our mothers prayed on their knees in front of our couch! And sometimes they would ask me to join them. What a heritage we have! Prayers and love to you all. Mark and Brenda Applebee

Very glad that you had such a wonderful mother and for so many years. I am sorry that I only knew her such a short time and only by her letter. Though comforting to know that she is with Jesus without pain, it is still difficult. Praying that you will sense the Holy Spirit being very close to you and comforting you. May He also flood you with happy memories. My deepest condolences...

So sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful, Christian lady and I’m so glad I got to know her.

There are a ton of memories running trough our hearts and minds right now about Marj. She was a dear friend, a choice servant of God, a great example of Christ-likeness and a cheerleader to so many Young People in our Youth group at the McKeesport Alliance Church. Both our hearts are grieving but also rejoicing that she is with her precious husband but more importantly, she is with her Savior and Lord. Someday we will all be back together again. What a day that will be! We love you! Carl & Jan Schmidt

I met your mother a few years back at our parsonage when Pastor Larry Dubose was our pastor at Broadway Alliance Church in East McKeesport, PA. She was with Teresa and Saundra. We had a wonderful time of fellowship. I am glad I had the chance to meet her. She was a beautiful person and a dedicated Christian. You have our deepest sympathy.
