Obituary for Marjorie Jean Rose

10/29/1936 - 02/17/2023

Marjorie “Margie” Rose, age 86 of Murphy, formerly Lewisville, TX, passed away in her sleep on Friday, February 17, 2023.

She was the daughter of Michigan parents, travelling often, as her father was a career WWII-era US Army Colonel.

Margie had worked in management her entire life, retiring as a Production Supervisor at a major manufacturing company.

“Our mother knew no guile. She was not pretentious and was an unquenchable optimist. She accepted you and believed in you. She was unfailing in her maternal love, to which her family and friends are eternally grateful. Our prayer is the joy she will have, when her Creator says to her, “Well done, My good and faithful servant.”

Surviving are 2 sons, 8 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. And one special chihuahua.

A memorial service will be held at 2pm on Friday, February 24, 2023 at Townson-Rose Funeral Home Chapel of Murphy. Pastor Ronnie Crisp, beloved neighbor of Margie, is anticipated to officiate.

Margie’s sons wish to add, that those unable to attend this memorial, their presence, compassion and tears were definitely felt and reciprocated.

Townson-Rose Funeral Home is in charge of all arrangements.
