Marjorie J. Corley
January 16, 1933 - December 1, 2018
Marjorie J. Corley of Martinez, GA passed away on Saturday, December 1, 2018. Marjorie was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Robert L. Corley who was from Argyle, Iowa. She was born in Kinston, NC to Paul and Lacey Kennedy. She lost her only brother, Elwood Kennedy and leaves behind two sisters, Joyce Mercer and her husband Macon, as well as her sister Rachel Whaley. Marjorie leaves behind her two children, Ritchie G. Heath of Grovetown, GA and her daughter Belinda Waldron (and husband Matt) of Oklahoma. Her grandchildren include, Joshua Heath, Aaron Heath (and wife Alicia) and Leah Hubbard (and husband Monte). She also leaves behind five great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews and many friends across the United States.
She wished to extend a special thank you to the loving hospice care team, especially to Esther, Christie, Sherry, Pat, Chaplain Mike Sides and Dr. Frederick Merrill.
Marjorie loved to talk, never met a stranger and could give detailed rendering of times and event from years gone by. She loved people and had a tender heart for animals. She kept an immaculate house, read her Bible daily, kept meticulous records and while healthy, spent many happy hours nurturing her garden with loving tenderness. Her greatest joy was to plant beautiful flowers, lay paving stones, carefully tend the grass and spent many hours outside in the yard. Marjorie was a strong, determined woman and met many challenges in her life, including lung cancer, with grace and dignity.
May you rest in peace special lady and may your loved ones greet you with open arms of joy at Heaven’s Gate. We will miss you more than words can say.

I happily called her Mom and we were mother and son in in our interaction. Mom was so good to me, giving me her beautiful daughter Belinda as my wife and treating me always as closest of family. I will remember her as sweet, loving, generous, fun to talk to, a gardener without peer, a fighter for her rights, knowledgeable with firm opinions and happy to talk about any subject you could bring up. She kept a beautiful and sparkling home and grounds as an outward expression of her ordered, inner self. Mom told me I "got her", and I loved her for the beautiful person she was. She told me she would enjoy being a fellow green thumb with my mother in heaven where she must be now, with husband Bob, smiling on all of us with her love.Matt Waldron - December 6 at 8:59 AM
