From: Natalie Petersen
Relation: Met Marjorie at Mountain Lakes.

I just want to offer Marjorie’s family my condolences on her passing. I got to meet and get to know Marjorie a little bit while visiting at Mountain Lakes. What a lovely woman. Such a talented, articulate and funny woman. Marjorie used to have this saying. Which she would often say when I would ask her how she is doing.

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink.

She would also like to talk about her little dog Prince Tao. Which was one of her paintings that she did.

Rest in peace Marjorie.
