Marjie Lou Haning died peacefully in her home in Waco, TX on the 22nd of April, she was formerly of Pekin, IL . Those who were fortunate enough to have Marjie in their lives knew her as a tireless worker, a close and loyal friend, and an amazingly loving and supportive sister, aunt, daughter and mother. Marjie was born in Denver, Colorado to William and Ruth Troutman. Their family also lived in Rapid City SD and Waterloo, IA before finally settling in Pekin, IL. Marjie grew up to be a strong woman who worked hard to help her communities become better places to live.

Marjie was also an incredibly creative and crafty person, who seemed to always be knitting, quilting or crocheting something beautiful. She was also known to dabble in more exotic arts like making beer can snowmen and baking fancy cookies that looked like hamburgers.
