Marjorie E. Michael

Feb. 8, 1918 - June 22, 2013

ANDERSON — Marjorie E. Michael, 95, of Anderson, passed from this world into the waiting arms of her Savior and Loved Ones, who had gone on before her, on June 22, 2013.

Marjorie was born on Feb. 8, 1918, in Summitville, the daughter of Ozro and Addline (Weaver) Adams. She was raised and attended school in the area. A young bride at 16, she wed Byron E. Michael on April 2, 1934. They engaged in an ever-deepening and never-ending devotion to each other. Whenever needed she lavished love, support and comfort on her extended family and friends. Many of her treasured friendships were lifetime, although she never ceased making new ones.

As a rural homemaker Marjorie engaged in vegetable gardening, canning, raising sheep, pigs, chickens and pampering her cats. She participated in Bridge Club and was a 50-year member of The Order of the Eastern Star. She loved to travel, was an excellent cook and enjoyed decorating her tastefully appointed home. She was noted for her “Green Thumb.” Her flower beds always reflected the love and hard work she put into them and were featured in several publications.

Marjorie’s favorite saying was “ Love them while you got them!” For those left behind there will never be another “Aunt Marge.” She will be dearly missed! “Until we meet again. We love you!”

Survivors include her brother, Esta “Bud” Adams; nieces and nephews, Doug (Shirley) Wetz, Jay (Glenda) Wetz, Leana (Tom) Orebaugh, Kay Lynn Wetz, Phyllis Wagner, Jenny (Steve) Brooking, Kay Moore, Eleanor Heavilin, Merle (Rosemary) Adams, Betty (Gary) Swift, Rose (Morris) Whitehead, Dennis (Kella) Maddox, and Allen (Dorothy) Maddox.

Marjorie was preceded in death by her husband, Byron Michael; a niece, Dorathy Stapleton; sisters, Mabel Wood and Bonnie Maddox; and her parents.

Services will be at 11 a.m. Monday at Rozelle-Johnson Funeral Service with Pastor Harrison Williams officiating. Burial will follow in Saunders Cemetery in Daleville.

Visitation will be from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday and one hour before service Monday at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be given to Madison County Humane Society or the donor’s choice of charity.
