1921 – 2015

ANDOVER — Long-time Andover resident Marjorie Pearl Stinson died at the age of 93 on Sunday, June 28, after a brief illness.

She was born Oct. 20, 1921, in Portland, to William Keir Simmons and Jesse Ruth (Enman) Simmons. She married the love of her life, Ralph Perry Stinson Sr. on March 8, 1941.

She leaves behind eight children, Joan, Jean and her husband, Bob, Donna and her husband, David, Perry and his significant other, Robyn, Glenn, Larry and his wife, Gwen, Wayne, and Alan and his wife, Kim. She was blessed with 13 grandchildren, Robert, Brian, Susan, Tom, Joel, Alyson, Keir, Brooke, Rachel, two Matthews, Miranda and Mark; as well as 16 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

Marjorie was predeceased by her husband; her parents; her sister, Jean; brothers, William (Bud) and David; and by her great-grandson, Bradley.

Grateful and kind, Marjorie touched many lives. She had the ability to make people feel special. She was quick with a joke or a smile, and never hesitated to poke fun at herself. She loved children, and well into her 70s could be found on the floor, playing with and giving them her full attention, acceptance and love.

The family would like to thank the entire staff of the Norway Rehabilitation Center for their exceptional care during the final nine months of her life.
