Marjorie Lucille Wolfe

October 21, 1946 ~ May 24, 2022 (age 75)


Marjorie Lucille Wolfe, 75, of Hartford transitioned to her heavenly home on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.

Marjorie was born in 1946, in Hartford to William Franklin Wolverton and Mattie (Mitchell) Wolverton. She attended Hartford Public Schools, and later, while raising her children, worked for the school as a bus driver for 26 years. She took pride as a public school bus driver in being firm but fair, a consistent disciplinarian, using the “Golden Rule” as her guide.

Marjorie was an avid reader (her favorite author was Karen Kingsbury). Early in life, she expressed herself artistically by drawing and painting. Later, she whipped out her crocheting needles and made and designed colorful baby blankets as babies came along. She loved gospel music, and sang with church choirs. She challenged herself to play the mandolin late in life. She enjoyed playing cards (especially hand and foot) or other board games with family and friends, or by herself on the computer. She loved her family (and all children) very much, and would simply take time to play UNO or other games with any child that was interested. Marjorie loved camping with grandchildren, and shared many experiences with them. Some of her most prized memories were spent with family. Additionally, she enjoyed visiting and traveling to national parks and monuments with Jim. She was a patriotic American, and stood for Christian family values. She was a Sunday school worker/helper for many years at Hartford Bible Church (formerly Hartford Federated Church). She truly loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and wanted to help others understand his love for them. Marjorie was a member and supporter of the Gideons International Auxiliary. For more than 20 years she helped distribute hundreds of bibles and share God’s word passionately with countless people.

She is survived by her husband, Jimmy M. Wolfe, whom she married on Nov. 15, 1986; sisters, Daisy Bernice (Verl) Taylor, Linda (Rodney) Lawson; children, Rick (Tammy) Smith, Christopher Smith, David Smith; stepchildren, Kelli Wolfe, Brandon (Holly) Wolfe, Jason Wolfe; 14 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and many loved nieces and nephews.

Preceding her in death was her parents, Franklin Wolverton and Mattie Wolverton; brother, William "Bill" Wolverton; and sisters, Lottie Baker, Letha Cooner, Mary Adams and Daisy Barrett.

A celebration of life will be June 12 at Hartford Bible Church, 65418 Red Arrow Highway. Visitation will be at 2 p.m., followed by a service at 3 p.m., and then a luncheon. Her ashes will be laid to rest at Keeler Cemetery at a later time in a private family gathering. Memorials can be made to: The Gideons International, P.O. Box 467, Hartford, MI 49057; or Armed Forces Foundation, P.O. Box 64, Decatur, MI 49045. The family has entrusted Calvin Funeral Home in Hartford with arrangements.
