My Sweet Aunt Marjorie will always be remenbered by our family: Fadra and Bill, Jim and Melinda; Candy and David, and our extended families. When we returned to IL we would always try to be with her and quite often had a good time with her daughter Nancy and Lou, son Bob and Dottie; and listened to her proud accounting of sons Tom and Bernie. She was a petite lady from McLean, Virginia and a descendent of Robert E. Lee. She was a very sweet Aunt who smiled when she greeted us and made the time we spent with her so cheerful and fun! We will miss her so much! Our prayers are with her family and close friends who will cherish the memories of a very special little lady -- my Aunt Marjorie! Fadra Waggoner Coil and husband, Bill Coil
