“I am saddened with this news but know that Marjorie is in a better place with her husband and parents. She was a gift to Mercy San Juan Hospital as a volunteer. She spent many hours in the 'medical records' department and made many friends throughout the hospital. Always had a smile and was truly interested in what others were doing in their lives. May God Bless her with peace and give peace to all her family and friends.”

“I am sorry for the loss of Marjorie, my prayers are with the family. She was an Awesome lady, always kept me smiling. She worked very hard as a Volunteer with Mercy San Juan, you would think she never left since she was there so much. Rain or shine, Marjorie was there at her desk in the HIM department. It's sad to hear she is gone, but I know she is in a better place.
