March 16, 1925-Jan. 20, 2018
Marjorie Page, 92, passed away Saturday, January 20, 2018 at the Granite County Medical Center surrounded by her loving family.
Marjorie (Marj) was born March 16, 1925 in Windham, Montana to Joe and Nellie Dennis. She was the third of five children. She joined Otis and Hazel, and later Nellie and Elleanor completed the family. They moved to Philipsburg, Montana where Marj attended schools and graduated from Granite County High School in 1942. She worked at the telephone office as an operator until her marriage to Tom Page on Feb. 27, 1944.
Marj was active in numerous community and service organizations through her years and was a member Eastern Star and the Ladies Auxiliary. She began her dedicated 32-year career working at Doe’s Drugstore when Everett and Wilda Doe hired her in 1961. She retired from there in 1993.
Some of the greatest joys of her life were being a Mom, a grandmother (having her granddaughters, Cary McLure, Kae Quick, and Kelly McLure growing up across the street), working at Doe’s Drug and reading (she loved to read). She was the epicenter of her ever growing family and she will be dearly missed.
She was preceded in death by her husband, mother, father, three sisters and one brother.
Her survivors include her children, Sharon (Park) McLure, Dennis (Anne) Page and Kathrin (Gary) Benson; grandchildren, Cary McLure, Kae (Mike) Quick, Kelly McLure, Garrett (Wendy) Benson, Kendra Benson; great grandchildren, Dan (Austin), Alt and Justin (Kelsey) Alt, Aurora, Derick, and Dylan Quick, Kenley and Jaxon Benson; and great-great-grandchildren, Lydia Alt and Jaylee Frank.
Cremation has taken place and services will be held at a later date.
Memorials or donations can be made to Philipsburg Library, Philipsburg Cemetery, or donor’s choice.
Longfellow Finnegan Riddle Funeral & Cremation Service is entrusted with Marj’s funeral arrangements. You may pay your condolences at www.longfellowfinneganriddle.com.
