Marjorie Feitshans, 98, passed away on May 25, 2023 at Clark Lindsey Greenhouse.
Marjorie was born on November 20, 1924 in Rankin, Illinois the daughter of Gustaf & Bertha (Brenner) Seidel. She married Myron Feitshans on August 31, 1946 in Rankin, Illinois and they shared 70 years together before Myron passed away on December 16, 2016.
She is survived by her son- Walter (Lynn) Feitshans of Titusville, Fl, daughter- Sandy (Ichiro) Matsuda of Columbia, MO; eight grandchildren- Sierra Feitshans, Seija Anderson, Todd Sederholm, Fred Sederholm, Matthew Boekhout, Mark Boekhout, Holly Mendenhall, Jaclyn Boekhout; 15 great grandchildren; son in law- David Sederholm.
Marjorie Feitshans was the youngest of 9 children. She is preceded in death by her siblings (Gus, Kenneth, Helen, Ottilie, Bertha, Lucille, Frances and Gertrude), parents, husband, Myron; daughters- Susan Sederholm and Alice Boekhout; son in law – Scott Boekhout.
Marjorie married Myron and graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in teaching. She taught at Rankin High School before her children were born. When her youngest daughter Alice entered kindergarten, she volunteered in the school library. This led to a 20 year career as a children’s librarian in the Urbana schools. She and Myron were active in community and church activities and were devoted grandparents. They were sought out as skilled bridge players by friends and croquet players by their grandchildren. Marjorie loved reading, crosswords and traveling to Elderhostels. She was an avid user of the public and Clark Lindsey libraries. She and Myron wrote down words of wisdom they tried to live by and shared it with family and friends, reminding us to practice kindness, compassion, tolerance, love, faith and forgiveness. Marjorie lived her last 16 years at Clark Lindsey Village and East Greenhouse. The family wishes to thank all those who cared for her there. She lived a long and fulfilling life and left the world a better place.
