Died on Feb. 18, 2008 at the age of 65. She was a unique and captivating woman who lived life her own way and left an unforgettable impression on everyone she knew. She was many things but more than anything a mother , a grandmother and a great-grandmother. Her family was absolutely the most important thing in her life. She was the envy of all of her peers, because she was always surrounded by her kids and their kids. Which was exactly how she always envisioned her life.

Our beautiful mother, Marjorie Elizabeth Gunderson, 88, nee Brenaman, passed away on Saturday, February 16, 2008 at The Right Place, the senior living residence where she had lived and was lovingly cared for these last three years. Until a month before his death in 2001, she had cared for our father in their home. Ralph had lived many years with multiple sclerosis.
