In Memoriam: Marjorie Wilson (July 25, 1934 – Jan. 15, 2024)

Marjorie Wilson, 89, of Silverton, Oregon, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend, passed away peacefully on Jan. 15, 2024.

Born in Kansas, to James and Kathryn Mosolf, she moved to the Northwest at an early age and grew up in Salem, Oregon, attending Salem High School and University of Puget Sound.

In addition to raising five children, Marjorie was active in PTA, and worked at Englewood Elementary School, finishing her career as the Director of Summer Conferences at Willamette University in Salem. 

She also enjoyed many hobbies and activities including dancing, sports (particularly baseball), traveling, stamping, reading on her Kindle, and gardening.

For Marjorie, family was her love. Having her “chicks” all together and being the hub of activity brought her great joy.

On Sept. 18, 2010, Marjorie married Bob Wilson. They shared their faith and a great love for each other and for family. They passed this love on and she will be greatly missed.

Marjorie is preceded in death by her son, Michael; and is survived by her husband, Bob, and his family; as well as her four children, Bill, Jim, Steve and Amy; 11 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.

A service to celebrate her life and faith was held on Jan. 27 at Unger Funeral Chapel in Silverton, with Pastor Joe Hughes from Trinity Lutheran Church presiding.
