Marjorie M. Kilpatrick, 87

Manchester, CT / Granville, NY – Marjorie M. Kilpatrick passed away on Thursday, September 25, 2008 at the home of her son, Brian Kilpatrick.

Marjorie was born on July 15, 1921 in  Manchester, CT the daughter of Stephen and Sarah (Sinclair) McAdam.

Marjorie graduated from Manchester High School, in Manchester CT as co-salutatorian of her class of 1939.  During her youth she became a member of the Church of the Nazarene in Manchester. She shared her faith with the youth of that church by spending many years teaching Sunday school.  She married Nelson Kilpatrick in 1942, during World War II. Marjorie was a homemaker, wife and mother.  While performing those domestic chores she found that she especially enjoyed baking pies, to share with family and friends.  Once the children were grown and Nelson retired, they spent time traveling throughout the world. But they always returned to Manchester, CT. Nine months ago they moved to Granville due to failing health, and to be near their son and his family.

Marjorie was predeceased by a sister, Eunice (Platt) and a brother Elwin (McAdam). Marjorie is survived by her husband of 65 years, Nelson Kilpatrick, two daughters: Christine Brigham of Colorado Springs, Colorado and Sharon McGlinchey and her husband Don of St. Petersburg, FL  and a son Brian Kilpatrick and his wife Joan of Granville.
