Marjory Sander Obituary, Death – Marjory Sander Has Unexpectedly Passed Away. We are deeply saddened to share the news that Marjory Louise (Carey/Allen) Sander, a resident of Soddy Daisy, Tennessee, has passed away. Marjory (Margie), who was 94 years old when she died, passed away on May 18 while she was at home with her family. On June 24th, 1928, in the town of Evart, Michigan, Margie Carey became the eighth and final child to be born to Earl and Mary Belle (Staats) Carey.
She was a very involved student at Evart schools, and she loved playing the clarinet in the school marching band. She also cherished her hometown of Evart, as well as her friends. Her formative years were spent working with her family on the farm, where she developed a deep appreciation for the outdoors, many species of animals, and, most significantly, her own family. Margie loved her jobs as an accountant, a salesperson for Stanley Home Products, a server, and a hostess because she got to interact with interesting and lively people.
She set a new standard for commitment by devoting her entire life to provide for her family as well as her extended families. Her parents, four brothers (Ralph, Ray, Kenneth, and Donald Carey), and three sisters (Alta Dyer, Lucille Gardner, and Pauline Shurtz) as well as her husband Fritz and daughter-in-law Jo Ann Allen all passed away before she did. Her children Wayne Allen, Pamela Allen, Belinda (Cort) Mathes, Dan (Karen) Allen, and Jill Allen, as well as her step-daughters Barbara Hoggard and Patricia Payson, as well as her seventeen grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren, are the only ones left to carry on her legacy and honor her memory.
Visitation for Marjory will be held on Friday, June 2nd from 4:00-8:00 pm at the Corey Funeral Home in Evart, Michigan, and the funeral service will be conducted on Saturday, June 3rd at 10:00 am. Both events will be held in joyful celebration of Marjory’s life. The interment will take place at Forest Hill Cemetery, and thereafter there will be a luncheon.
