The Pallbearers - Burying Marje

Marjorie Neely (May 3, 1925 - February 24, 2016) was laid to rest on Thursday March 3rd. Her grandsons, Roderick McLeod, David Neely, Corin and Jason Fator, and her great grandsons Calvin Jackson and Tristen Coulter lent to the bar and bore her casket to the grave side. The small private service at the Monument Hill Memorial Park in Woodland, California, was attended by nearly fifty family members, and her legacy of caring prayer-filled love will be long remembered and sorely missed.

Following the interment a reception was hosted by Life Pointe Church in Woodland

Following Marje

If you ever received a letter or note,
Or a neat birthday card, small or large,
In a clear written script 
with love crammed in it,
I reckon you got it from Marje.

If you in the face of troubles and strife
Had a prayer warrior leading the charge
Imploring God’s Peace
for a cousin or niece,
I’m convinced that it was our Marje.

If you needed shelter and some where to stay
A shield of protection, a targe,
There’re many can tell
who know it well
They found that refuge with Marje.

The example’s been given and we in our turn
Should add the task to our charge,
To care for each other  
Each sister and brother
Each father and mother, like Marje

But now it is done, the race has been run
Her faithfulness gives us our cue,
To remember and pray 
For each other each day
Being mindful as Marje used to do.
