March 1, 1926 -- November 30, 2009

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wonderful mother, at age 83, at the home of her daughter in Texas. Margorie was born in New Jersey on March 1, 1926, to Eunice (McClelland) Pfeifer and Leslie Pfeifer.

She married Karl F. Koch in 1949. Karl died in 1966. Margorie married Arthur C. Kelley in 1969 and shortly thereafter moved to St. Charles, Illinois, where they lived until 1983, and then retired to Cassville, Missouri, where her children and grandchildren enjoyed many wonderful visits. Arthur died in 1996.

Margorie leaves behind three daughters, Kathleen (Koch) Hayworth and her husband, David, of Texas, Karen (Koch) Hayworth and her husband, Steve, of New Jersey, and Paula (Koch) Rhodes, of Illinois; six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren; as well as one sister, Jacqueline, of Illinois and a brother, Stanley, of New Jersey. She will be remembered and missed by all. Paid Obit
