Marjorie was the 2012 Honorary Lady Chairman of the State Association of Texas Pioneers. In this photo she is cutting the ribbon to signify the start of the San Antonio Woman's Club Fiesta Flower Show accompanied by other Fiesta dignitaries. We drive through Smiley about once a month and have tried to contact Marjorie several times without success. In trying to track down some of our members to see how they were doing we ran across this memorial and were so sad to learn that Marjorie had passed but are happy that she has been reunited with friends and family who have gone before. Marjorie was a force of nature and will be missed.

Marjorie, was my moms cousin(Maxine Whiddon Gentry) The book that Marjorie wrote "The Ties That Bind" got me in interested in my Whiddon Roots and I have spent over 20 years going back in time discovering my roots. I wish I could have thanked Marjorie in person for what her book meant to me. My mom had nothing but good things to say about her.
