WESTMONT — SMITH – Marjorie S., 68, Westmont, died unexpectedly Oct. 19, 2013, in Washington Township, Franklin County, Pa., while returning from her grandson’s football game. Born June 27, 1945, in Kalamazoo, Mich., where she lived – along with her large extended family – for 22 years. She was the daughter of the late Maurice and Ida (Pinkster) Schippers and sister of Mary Louise (Paul) Frederick of Portage, Mich. Marjorie studied education at Taylor University and received a master’s degree in reading from IUP. She was a lifelong educator and recently retired from Conemaugh Valley School District. After retirement, she remained active in education as a volunteer tutor. Outside of education, Marjorie was an involved member of Westmont Presbyterian Church, where she served as a deacon and participated in the quilting ministry. Most of all, Marjorie will be remembered for her kind and giving spirit and will be especially missed by her fellow “muffins.” Marjorie is survived by her devoted husband of 45 years, Gordon D. Smith, whom she met at Taylor University; her loving daughters, Courtney (Tres) Kelly, Emmitsburg, Md.; and Stacey (Robert) Basso, San Francisco, Calif.; and adoring grandchildren, Grant, Allison, Lauren and Alayna Kelly; and Julia Basso. Friends will be received from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday at Harris Funeral Home, 500 Cherry Lane, Richland. Funeral service will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday at Westmont Presbyterian Church, the Rev. Cynthia Cadenhead and the Rev. Dr. Douglas Stevens, co-officiating. Private entombment will be at Grandview Cemetery on Monday. The family suggests donations be made to the charity of the giver’s choice or to Westmont Presbyterian Church Prayers and Squares Ministry or Deacons’ Ministry, 601 Luzerne St., Johnstown, Pa. 15905, in memory of Marjorie.
