Marjorie D. Pierce

Shelbyville

 

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 worked for her parents at Wagner’s Meat Market and Wagner’s Trucking, for Guy at Guys Steakhouse and the most memorable, at the Circuit Clerk’s Office in Shelby County for 20 plus years. 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. Even when she didn’t have a child or grandchild playing baseball, football or basketball, you could find her in the crowd cheering on the Rams! She also had a great love of all kids and animals. 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.

Surviving are her eight children, Jane (Mark) Cieplik of Shelbyville, Dixie Ladd of Shelbyville, Guy (Lesley) Pierce of St. Charles, IL, Rick (Debbie) Pierce of Johnstowne, OH, Mick (Jennifer) Pierce of Nashville, IL, Greg (Cammi) Pierce, George (Julie) Pierce and Peggy ( Brad) Martz all of Shelbyville, IL; sister Louise Metzger of Shelbyville, IL; brother Donnie (Dicka) Wagner of Forsythe, IL; sisters-in-law Shirley Peifer, Linda Wagner, and Pat Wagner; brothers-in-law Roger (Jackie) Pierce and Richard (Diane) Pierce; grandchildren: Kate, Laura, and Brook Ceiplik , Kyle (Katy), Kraig and Morgan Ladd, Natalie (Scott) and Emily Pierce, Breanne and Kyle Pierce, Jackson and Havalen Pierce, Kelsey (Brian) Collins, Madyson (Cole) Pierce, Gaby and Cooper Pierce, Bailey and Ryann Ambrose, Drake (Whitney) Martz, Quinn and Tate Martz; great grandchildren: Grayson Martz and Hudson Younger and several nieces and nephews.
