Marjorie was an accomplished musician on both the piano and organ.
Marjorie met her husband Phil, the 9th of 11 children, while both were students at North Tonawanda High School. After graduation, Marjorie worked at Remington Rand in Tonawanda. She had planned to go to Fredonia for music but liked her job. During WWII, Phil was in the Marine Corps serving in the Pacific Theater. They married while he was in college.
Marjorie left Rem-Rand after 9 years when they started their family. She was a stay-at-home mom for Beth and Mark. Marjorie participated in PTA as a legislative representative. She was an active member of Home Bureau. She was also an astute stock market investor and trader.
As the middle sister, Marjorie was very close to both her sisters. She became close to all 8 of Phil’s sisters. Marjorie is the last surviving Aunt in the Siezega Family of the original generation.
Marjorie and Phil were a “camping family” visiting many places in the United States in a tent trailer.
Marjorie and Phil were dedicated grandparents, taking a key roll in the daily lives of the local grandsons.
They went to their home every day to care for the 3 boys, Jeff, Chris and Josh, after school. They had a meal, played cards and did projects until Beth got home. To this day, when the boys, now grown men, visit Marjorie, they always have time for playing cards.
There are wonderful memories of Christmases when Mark’s family came from California for the holidays. There were other great memories of visiting them at the beach house in the Outer banks.
In March 2015, Marjorie, suffered a concussion, memory loss, and hallucinations. She spent 3 months in Niagara Hospice. Marjorie improved so much she no longer qualified for Hospice and she could move to independent living in an Amberleigh apartment where she continued to make new friends and resided until her passing.
Marjorie stated she has had a long and happy life, the best husband in the whole world and 2 wonderful children who never gave her any problems. "The secret of a happy life is Respect. Never say anything hurtful and always look for the good things people say and do."
