- About Us
Marjorie Worthington passed away December 29, 2018, in Auburn, Washington. She was 87 years old.
Marjorie Curtis was born August 12, 1931, in Bremerton, Washington. She grew up in Tacoma, WA, graduating from Stadium High School and the University of Washington. While earning her Master’s at Central Washington University, she met George Worthington and the two were married on December 21, 1957. The couple moved to Enumclaw, where she resided for the rest of her life.
Marjorie had a degree in Librarianship, and her love of reading extended beyond her work as Head Librarian for Enumclaw’s Elementary Schools. She took a strong interest in her community and participated in myriad ways: serving on the Enumclaw Library Board and the Board of the Christian Science Church, holding various offices in Chapter EF of P.E.O., and delivering meals to Seniors for Meals on Wheels and Neighbors Feeding Neighbors, among countless examples.
Marjorie also traveled extensively, mostly with her husband and family, but alone at times as well. Her adventurous spirit took her all over the United States and around the globe, visiting six continents in her lifetime. This full engagement in the world was also reflected in her political activism and generosity to social causes. Marjorie loved films, theater, and both listening to and making music. She particularly enjoyed visiting her grandchildren in California, and her sister Beverly Johanson on Orcas Island. Those who knew her well might describe her as a deep appreciator of life.
Marjorie is survived by her daughter, Karen Worthington of Enumclaw, and her son Cort Worthington, daughter-in-law Susan Snyder, and grandchildren Shifra and Zachariah, all of Berkeley, California. She was preceded in death by her husband George, and her brother David Curtis.
A Celebration of her Life will be held Sunday, January 27th at 1 pm at Byron Kibler Elementary School in Enumclaw.
