Heaven gained an Irish angel, as our beloved Marjorie, 92, born in Nesquehoning, PA, passed away Wednesday, March 18th in Durham. She spent her last St. Patrick’s Day surrounded by her family dressed in green, because Marjorie would spend her favorite day of the year in no other fashion.
She is predeceased by her mother, Josephine Veronica McElvar; father, Peter Paul Curry; brother, Thomas Curry; sister, Nancy Curry Crownover; husbands, Carl Rupert and Elwood Schaadt. Carl Rupert, the father of her children, passed away in 1972. Marge later married Elwood Schaadt, who was thrilled to take on the role of a grandfather. Her spunky, unforgettable spirit lives on through her children, Renee Floyd and Marc Rupert; son-in-law Frank; grandchildren, Justin, Courtney, Kerry and husband Andrew, Logan, McKenzie, Riley; great-grandchildren, Liam, Brayden, and Cameron. She also leaves behind many life-long friends and her final animal companion, Roxy.
In lieu of flowers the family asks for memorial donations to be made to your favorite animal charity, to honor Marjorie’s life-long passion for animals. Memorial service will be held at a later date.
