Marjorie L Matier

August 17, 1930-September 13, 2018

Marjorie passed away at Harrison Hospital, in Bremerton due to complications from a stroke.

Marjorie is survived by her 2 daughters Jackie Grimes and Sue Matier, both of Bainbridge Island. In addition to Jackie and Sue, Marj has countless grand children, great grand children, great great grand children and grand pets. Marj’s #1 favorite granddog, Nelly misses her dearly.

Marj came to Bainbridge in the early 1950’s. During this time she worked for the nursing registry, filling in at 1 of the 3 hospitals, sometimes not knowing which hospital she’d be working at that day until the ferry pulled into Coleman dock. In the 1960’s, she wanted to be closer to home and went to work at Martha and Mary’s nursing home. Finally, in the 1970’s and 80’s, Marj felt she could enrich the lives of sick, handicapped patients in the privacy of their homes. This is where she would retire from doing, so she could spend more time at home with her family.

Marj loved doing her crafts. Puzzles, plastic canvas, knitting, baking and her ultimate hobby of crocheting. Marj volunteered at the Bainbridge helpline house. She would spend numerous hours each day crocheting layettes for all the new babies. I don’t think there was a baby born on the island during this period who didn’t get one of her layettes.

Marjorie will be greatly missed, she wasn’t just our mother/grandmother/great grandmother, she was our beloved friend. Services will be held at a later date.

Rest in Peace Gram.
