Marjorie A. Morrow

March 13, 1926 ~ March 4, 2018 (age 91)

Marjorie Alice Morrow, 91, Logansport, passed away at 6:00 a.m., on Sunday, March 4, 2018, in Logansport Memorial Hospital.

On March 13, 1926 in Peru, she was born to Russell Maugans and Dorothy (Mays) Maugans.

She was married in April of 1963 at St Vincent de Paul church, in Logansport, to William D. Morrow, who preceded her in death in February of 2001.

Marjorie began her working life by teaching at Peru High School upon graduation. She embarked on a career at Dukes Memorial Hospital in Peru after which she served as the Medical Records Director of the Logansport State Hospital for over 30 years, retiring in 1991.

Marjorie enjoyed telling the story of her first job interview and how her supervisor asked, “If I hire you, I assume you have a dress you can wear to work?” As the 1960’s dawned and brought pants suits with them, she ensured that all dresses in her closet were exiled, never to return.

After retirement, she continued to enjoy gardening, knitting, candle & soap making and traveling. She began wood carving in her late 60s and continued until arthritis made this less enjoyable. She and her husband delivered Meals on Wheels through Memorial Hospital for several years. Marjorie developed an appreciation for classic films of the early and mid-1900’s and enjoyed several more recent family sitcoms.

Surviving are her brother, James Maugans and sister, Carol Lou Woodward, both of Fort Myers, Florida, two sons, William R. Morrow (Sarah Silance) of Logansport and David C. Morrow of Bremen, and several amazing nieces, nephews, and cousins.

The Maugans clan was from Peru, Indiana, but has roots in Stuttgart, Germany.  Conrad Maugans arrived in Maryland in 1695 to start an orchard and added a family line that stretches down to the present.

Visitation will be on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m., with the funeral service following at 1:30 p.m., both at Kroeger Funeral Home. Rev. Ken Smith will officiate.

Burial will follow at Mount Hope Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Logansport VFW, whose assistance and generosity made her last few years much more comfortable and independent, or the Cardinal Center of Bremen.
