Marjorie, daughter of Ruth and Alan Vosburg of Kalamazoo, was born September 20, 1923.
She resided in Detroit, Michigan and went to Northwestern High School, graduating Suma Cum Laude and third in line for a scholarship to Wayne State University. She enjoyed good music, dancing and getting good marks. Marjorie also loved clothes, especially hats.
Marjorie was employed by Detroit Edison Company for 42 years of service from 1941 to 1983. She entered as a clerk in the stock department and was promoted to secretary, and then to vice president secretary of the company.
At age 28, Marjorie bought her first home, a log cabin on Commerce Lake, near Pontiac. Ten years later she bought another cabin to make a home for her mom and brother Bill.
In 1968 she was married to Douglas Willard Green and spent 10 years enjoying friends, their dogs and their pontoon boat. Doug proceeded her in death in 1977.
Marjorie retired at age 60 in 1983 and moved into a cabin she renovated on the shores of Lake Michigan in Harbor Springs. Her 93 old mother, whom Marge cared for, joined her and passed away in 1988.
Marge purchased a condo in Petoskey, Michigan, where she spent many happy years. In 2003 she rented a condo in Birmingham, Michigan, and reacquainted herself with old school and working friends while continuing to entertain and enjoy life. She moved permanently back to her Petoskey condo in 2006 where she resided until she moved to Independence Village where she peacefully passed away.
