Marj had worked for Metamora Hallmark Fixtures Operations, retiring in 1995. Marj loved gardening. Going to the greenhouse and getting flowers was one of her favorite things to do. She loved spending time outside taking care of all of her plants. She most definitely had a green thumb. She also loved to spend her time crocheting. She always had her yarn close by and she created so many beautiful afghans over the years. Marj also had a love for travel. Her and her husband traveled all over together. Above everything else, Marj loved spending time with her family. She will be missed so much and will forever be in our hearts.
Cremation rites have been accorded. No services will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to Alzheimer’s Association Central Illinois Chapter, 614 West Glen Avenue, Peoria, IL 61614. Online condolences at www.masonfuneralhomes.com.
