Resident of the Month

 

Marjorie Casey

 

 

             Marjorie was born September 21, 1921 to Fred and Ruth Roberts in Lincoln, Nebraska. She was one of seven children. She had five brothers and one sister.

             In 1935 she married George Stone. They had ten children; four boys and six girls. What a family! Needless to say with a big family came lots of hard work. Marjorie, known to most as Marge, loved her children. That was her whole life.

Marge and George were later divorced. Marge worked many years at Taylors Dry Cleaners in Council Grove, Kansas. She also worked at Saddle Rock Café.

Marge loved to cook and was very good at it. She made stacks of homemade doughnuts for everyone that showed up on Sunday. They were delicious! She made homemade noodles, cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls that would melt in your mouth.

 Marge taught her granddaughter, Fonda, how to make those mouth watering dinner rolls. Now, for our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners Fonda makes grandma Casey’s rolls, as we call them.

Later on Marge married Ira Sickles. On Sundays the kids and grandkids would meet for dinner. Then, they practice shodeo events with their horses. Marge also helped work at the snack shack during the shodeos. She was always there for her family.

Marge later divorced and married Jim Casey. Once Jim accepted Jesus as his Savior, the rocky road he and Marge traveled got better. They were both members of the Berean Baptist church in Council Grove. They both being Christians made life much easier. At least now they had someone they knew they could trust– Jesus Christ.

 Marge has twenty four grandkids, sixty five great grandkids, and sixty great-great grandkids and another on the way in January.

She was and is a loving mother. We love you mom! Your son Alvin and wife Carla.

Congratulation Marjorie for being chosen as

“Our Resident of the Month”
