Marjorie was a devoted Catholic and her collection of angel figurines demonstrated her fascination and love of angels, of which she is one.

She is survived by sons, Darryl M. Brown of Newington, N.H., and his wife, Sharon, and their daughters, Lauren and Renée, Glenn M. Brown of Stoneham and Daniel S. Brown of Jay.
