Marjorie D. Pierce, 80, of Shelbyville IL passed away at 4:50 PM Wednesday July 17, 2013 in Prairie Rose Health Care Center in Pana, IL. She was born in rural Shelby County, IL on July 2, 1933 the daughter of Dayton and Helen (Apple) Wagner.

She married John Pierce on July 24, 1954 . He preceded her in death on September 12, 2001.

Marjorie graduated from Shelbyville High School and Sparks Business College in Shelbyville.

She finished out her retirement by working for her niece at Stephens’s Greenhouse in Shelbyville.

Marjorie was an avid sports fan of all kinds. She loved the Chicago Bulls, Bears and Cubs; but most of all, she loved watching her children and grandchildren participate in sports.

If any needed a home, her door was always open. If anyone ever needed a parent or friend to talk to, Marjorie was always there.
