Marjorie Lou (Sharp) Woods, age 86, of Greenfield, passed away Wednesday night, May 23, 2018, at Dade County Nursing Home where she had been a resident for the past six months.
Marjorie was born December 28, 1931, in Aurora, Missouri, to Tanda and Nannie (Lane) Sharp. On September 18, 1947, in Carthage, Missouri, she married the love of her life, Lorn Woods, and they made their home and raised their two children in Dade and Barton Counties. Lorn and Marjorie were devoted to each other and made lasting memories gardening, traveling, hosting and attending family events. A great day for them would include tending to their area flea market booths or finding treasure at a good garage sale. By their example, they instilled family values and work ethic in their children and delighted in the accomplishments of their grandchildren. They had shared over 60 years together before Lorn’s death on January 1, 2008.
In addition to being a hospitable homemaker, Marjorie had worked for many years at various jobs in Greenfield, Lockwood, and Lamar. She loved her family and was involved in the children’s school and church activities. Marjorie was a member of Bethlehem Southern Baptist Church and enjoyed the fellowship of her friends in the Dade County Extension Club.
