Information of Note:
Page One of the Thursday, May 22nd, 2008 'Lansing State Journal' The burial site is along the North-South line from just right of the tree seen left and above the center of the photo. The site is between a large "Shipman" marker on the west and "Green" marker on the east. Marjorie's grave is immediately south of her mother's and separate by one grave from her aunt Ethel Jones' marked grave.

In late April 2008 a marker was placed at her gravesite through the generosity of Kelly & Tom Stottman of California.

During our research we learned that the "Ethel P. Jones" that was interred two sub-plots over (#5) from Marjorie's sub-plot (#3) is actually her mother's sister; the cemetery staff had been operating under the assumption that the plot had been sold to someone outside of the family.

Marjorie died on brother Richard's eighth birthday; the following year he would be dead eight days shy of his nineth birthday & the first anniversary of the bombing. He died of myocarditis.
