La Grande, Oregon

Marjorie Ann Bartlett, 68, of La Grande, died May 26 in her home, surrounded by her family. A funeral service will begin at 2 p.m. Friday at Daniels-Knopp Funeral, Cremation & Life Celebration Center with Phil Burling from the local congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses officiating.

Marjorie was born Aug. 23, 1939, to Ralph and Eula (Bircher) Trow in Elma, Wash. The family moved to La Grande when she was 10 years old. On Aug. 23, 1959, she married James William Bartlett in La Grande and soon after started a family. The family lived in the Union County area.

She was exceedingly proud of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, boasting about them often. She showed her love for her family by providing for them the things they needed. She took pride in her cooking, baking, canning and home-making abilities. On her down time she enjoyed working in her yard and garden, spending time with her family and studying the Bible.

Those who knew her say she was a hard-working woman who appreciated the simple things in life, and was never afraid to get her hands dirty. She kept herself involved in the lives of her friends and family, never missing an opportunity to be a part of things. People who knew Marjorie said she never knew a stranger and was extremely generous, always putting great effort toward helping those in need. She was a dedicated member of her religion, had strong faith in her God and shared her beliefs with others. When she was younger she was very active in door-to-door ministry.

Survivors include her children and their spouses, Robin and Marci Bartlett, Rodney and Gina Bartlett, Rhonda and Bill Sain, Renee and Jack Moseley, Randy and Erika Bartlett and Rochelle and Justin Kruse, all of La Grande; 20 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; siblings, Virginia Marcum of Portland, Kenny Trow of Portland and Larry Trow of Newberg; and other relatives.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, James “Bill” Bartlett, on Jan. 3, 1994.
