Marjorie E. Wilson

Our Beloved Mother and Grandmother went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, June 17th 2007. She was born in Minden, Nebraska on March 12, 1932 to Elmer and Pearl Jorgensen.

Marge graduated from McLoughlin High School in Milton Freewater in 1950. She then went to nurses training and became a Registered Nurse for about 20 years. Marge retired from Hanford janitorial in 1994.

One of her hobbies was making hats on a wooden rack. She made over 5000 hats since she retired. Marge gave hats to kids in the area and donated many to the needy all over the world.

Marge was known as the ''Candy Lady'' at church and in her neighborhood. She taught them to say ''Please, thank you and Jesus loves me''.

Marge was preceded in death by her mother, Pearl Edith Jorgensen, her father, Elmer Jorgensen, and her brother, Charles Jorgensen.

She is survived by her son, Dan Wilson wife- Patty, daughter, Teri Shelton husband- Dan, daughter, Brenda Urlacher husband- Scott, and grandchildren- Melissa Wilson, April Wilson, Danielle Shelton, Kyle Shelton, and Travis Urlacher.

A memorial service will be held at Temple Baptist Church, 4555 Arena Road, Richland on Saturday, June 23, 2007 at 2:00 PM with a reception following.

We would like to thank our friends and family for their love and prayers and The Hospice for their great care.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Hospice or Cancer research.

PUBLIC ENTRY

Your guestbook entry will be visible to the public.

  • We enjoyed knowing Marge and being members of the same church. Couldn’t find a more loving and caring Christian lady. Each Sunday that she was at church, she was eager to pick-up a conversation with us, continuing on from our last. We sensed that she had somewhat of a difficult life, but she never uttered a word of complaint, or of self-pitty. She always had a smile on her face and a great sense of humor. She loved all of her family & grandchildren very much. She had a heart big enough to encompass all of the neighborhood children and stray animals. Her presence will be greatly missed—but we know she is now in a safe place of both rest and rejoicing with her LORD whom she loved and stayed committed to, up until she departed into HIS loving ARMS.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family–her loss will be felt by many—we are very sorry that this unfortunate and sudden illness took your mother/grandmother away. She was a trooper!!!!!!

  • Dan, Teri, and Brenda,

    I’m sorry for your loss. Your mom was truly wonderful lady and even though I hadn’t seen her in recent years, I remember her beautiful smile and kind heart. May she rest in peace. Abbot Street won’t be the same.

  • Danny….Hope you don’t mind if I call you that? To me, you’re still Danny, cause, we grew up together, going from Grade School, then onto Jr. High, and High School together. Seems strange that I just ran into you and your mother at Walmart, just a couple weeks ago! I hadn’t seen your mom since we were kids. God, does unusual things like that in my life, to get my attention! I was mean’t to see your mom and you that day, for one reason or another, before she passed on. I’m so sorry for your loss! You’re mom didn’t look well when I saw you, and I thought it was odd for her to be out at Walmart, of all places! I can only imagine the emptiness that you’re feeling. The Lord has been preparing me for that time too. My dad is battling terminal cancer! I can’t imagine my life without either of my parents! Their both in their 70’s, and are at that stage in life, of knowing that their time left is limited. ;- I myself, am in my second year of remission, from breast cancer. I would not have known about your mom’s passing if I hadn’t gone to “Einan’s Funeral Home” site, to look up an obituary from the past! There he goes again…God, I was mean’t to see it! Again, I’m so sorry for your loss, my heart goes out to you and your family, and my prayer is that you can adjust to this, “one of life’s processes”, with as little pain as possible! May God give you comfort in knowing, that your mom is out of pain, and at peace. Her spirit is free from these withering bodies, that we all dwell within, while here on this earth, learning “Life’s Lesson’s”!

    God Bless, and be with you ALL!

    Sincerely,
