Marjorie Gage

Edgar's picture

Our sweet and loving mother went to be with her Lord Jesus on December 25, 2018 in Brownwood, Texas. Marjorie Gage was born to Luther Neal and Johnnie Merl Brown on December 6, 1928. Visitation was held on Saturday, December 29, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at Heritage Funeral Home in San Saba, Texas. Services followed at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel. Interment was at San Saba Cemetery.

Marjorie married James William Gage, Jr. on July 4, 1946. They had four children; Tommy Joe Gage, Marilyn Shelton, James Gage, and Sherry Gage. Loving the outdoors, Marjorie spent as much time outside as she could. She gardened and canned the produce, helped her husband during pecan season, cooked for the family and friends, and quilted beautiful quilts. Over the years she has taken care of her daughter, Sherry. When her hands could no longer quilt, she started reading and found that she loved to read. She commented that if she knew that she would love to read so much there might not have been as many quilts made.

Marjorie is survived by son, James Gage, and daughters Marilyn Shelton and Sherry Gage, 6 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, 5 great-great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, and beloved friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, James William Gage, Jr, her parents, Luther and Merl Brown, son, Tommy Joe Gage, and sister, Bernel Taylor.

Pallbearers were: Brady Gage, Bryan Gage. Marl Schmidt. Heath Schmidt, Tanner Schmidt, and Zane McGehee. Honorary Pallbearers were: Roger McGehee and Felton Right. The officiant was Larry Smith.
