Born June 18, 1930 (Saylorsburg, PA), Marjorie was the only child of Blanche (Gearhart) and Raymond Marsh. Spending a brief time of her childhood in Saylorsburg, she and her Mother moved to Brooklyn, N.Y., living a wonderful life with the Brown/Kempner Family. Marjorie attended the Katharine Gibbs School, an institution for the education of young women. After graduation, she and her Mother returned to Saylorsburg. Marjorie began her career as a secretary to the President of Easton National Bank and Trust Company - where she met Gary Ayers Bush. They married in 1956 and welcomed three children.
Marjorie loved to read and plant flowers. Her deck was filled with vibrant colors of vinca, marigolds, geraniums and petunias. Marjorie was a great cook and baker. Each of her children has a handwritten cookbook of family recipes assuring they would always remember Linden Court, Bush Family holidays, birthday cakes and cookies!
Marjorie is survived by her daughter Gayle Klinzman and husband Stephen (Bloomingburg, N.Y.), two sons: Douglas S. Bush, his wife Edith, and their children, William (Will), Lee, and Jenna of Middletown, N.Y.; Joshua R. Bush, his wife Naomi, (Middletown, N.Y.) and his sons Aaron & Noah (Walker Valley, N.Y.); cousins Beryl, Sheila, Doneda, Richard and dear life-long friend Carol Brown Kempner.
