Marjorie Dean

Died: Aug 11, 2011
Marjorie Dean
Marjorie Dean was an immeasurably precious person. She had a deep, unwavering love for her husband and children. She had an incredible beauty all her own that blessed this world while she was in it, especially her loved ones, who felt it most strongly.

She had a humbleness and warmth that put others at ease. Marjorie may never have known just how wonderful she was.  Marjorie was a gentle, passionate person who fought for what she believed in and stood by her loved ones when they needed her most. She was a compassionate friend. She was grateful for what she had, especially for her family.

Even during the latter part of her life when she was struggling with dementia she always held on to a sense of gratefulness for her family. She loved her children to the very end and never let them forget this. They will love her always and she will always live in their hearts.
