Crain on September 5, 1950, in Mexico. Marjorie and George resided in Del Rio and Cotulla, Texas before moving back to Coleman.

Marjorie worked as a bus driver and worked in the school cafeteria while living in Cotulla. She also worked as a foster grandparent at the Abilene State School and worked in the cafeteria at General Dynamics. Marjorie was a gifted artist. She enjoyed painting and created many beautiful pieces. She could look at an ordinary object and automatically see an artistic version that nobody else could see. Her creativity of hats will never be forgotten by her friends and family. She was loved by her family and friends and will be missed.
