  1. Thinking of your families during this difficult time. I met and got to know Marjorie while working in the Laboratory at Wooster Hospital for many years. Marjorie was one of the handful of volunteers that I had contact with each time they volunteered. In addition to being a lovely person she was passionate about volunteering. When there was a special event you knew Marjorie would be one to volunteer to help. Her commitment to Wooster Community Hospital was very much appreciated by many of the employees.
