On the early evening of Sunday, June 13, 2021, heaven gained a new angel as Marjorie Woolfork passed away peacefully in the company of her loving family. Marjorie had battled breast cancer since January of 2017. She was 67 years old.
Marjorie lived a full, rich and diverse life and she helped all those around her enjoy and believe in themselves and grow in grace and gratitude. Marjorie’s kindness, sense of fun, and genuine care for her loved ones permanently enriched the lives of her grieving yet grateful husband, Kevin, her marvelous sons, Taylor Kyle and Joel Ryan, her other relatives, friends and others fortunate enough to come into contact with her
We all deeply and personally mourn Marjorie’s departure from this earth but her family are overwhelmed with gratitude from the great memories, experiences, understanding, acceptance, and unimaginable love that Marjorie bestowed on all of us. As Marjorie’s husband, Kevin is humbled and blessed to have been in her life for 40 and one half years, more than 35 of them as her spouse, lover and best friend.
What a great joy Marjorie has been and we believe she looks down upon us from heaven with the same love and warmth she showed us during her time on this earth.
In addition to her immediate family, and her son Taylor’s wife Michelle and her family, Marjorie is survived by her sister, Mary Kay Barnes, her niece Cate Ritter, her nephew Matt Munroe and his family, her sister-in-law Renee Duncan and husband Robert Duncan, and many loving cousins, relatives and friends all of whose lives she touched with grace.
Marjorie was preceded in death by her father, Robert Wayne Wardlow and her mother, Mary Evelyn Wardlow. Marjorie was born in Fort Madison, Iowa, was raised from childhood in Rialto, California, and spent her college and adult life living in Sacramento, California.
Marjorie obtained her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology from the University of California, Davis in 1975. Marjorie spent more than 30 years as an elementary school teacher in the Elk Grove Unified School District, spending the last 25 years of her career teaching at David Reese Elementary School.
A private burial service will be held for Marjorie Saint Mary’s Cemetery and at some future time, a celebration of her life will be held. To honor Marjorie’s memory, her family asks that you all do what she would want you to: be kind, accepting and caring to one another. Her greatest gift.
