Marjorie Ann Drolet

Marjorie Ann Drolet died peacefully on Tuesday, February 14, 2023 at Coulee Medical Center under the care of her endearing hospital staff. 

Marjorie was born April 1, 1929, to Frank and Pearl Epperson. Her parents, originally from Missouri, moved to Washington where they had three daughters one son. Margie had a husband, Jack, and two sons, Don Sr.  and Richard, who all proceeded her in death. Marge is survived by many grand and great-grandchildren. She was young at heart and full of love and life. A social butterfly, Marge welcomed company with open arms, and she always had a pot of coffee and/or dinner to share. She spent nearly 40 years selling Avon, doing quite well for herself and the love of her life, her husband, Jack, who she stood beside as he fought a 22-year battle with cancer. Margie dearly loved family and friends she was loyal to a fault. She had a quick-fire temper but was even quicker to apologize. She passionately loved the Ladies Auxiliary FOE 2577, serving as madam president many times over the years, most recent was 2021 to 2022. Margie's last role was permanent mother. She remained active, attending meetings and calling officers weekly until she left us to go be with Jesus, her husband and family that proceeded her.

Join the Eagle's Ladies Auxiliary on Saturday, April 15, at 1pm for a potluck style dinner. The Ladies Auxiliary are supplying ham and cake.  Please bring a dish and your memories, even pictures, to share as we honor and celebrate Margie's life.
