M arjorie F. Haines passed away at Glens Falls Hospital on Saturday, June 27, 2009.
Marjorie was born on June 15, 1926, in White Horse, N.J., the daughter of John and Dorothy (Kerbey) McDonough.
Some may remember Marjorie’s smiling face and helpful nature while she worked at Willowbrook Gardens for more than 17 years.
Marjorie was a member of St. Mary’s Church. She was a kind and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother in addition to being a good friend. She was fun and full of life. In the only eyes that mattered, those of her family, she was the “perfect” Mom and Grandma. She had a passion for shopping. Even lying on her sick bed, she was willing to peruse the sale fliers. Marjorie was never one to pass up the occasional trip to the beach for an afternoon spent in the sun having fun with her family. She enjoyed spending the last 11 winters in Sarasota, Fla., allowing her the opportunity to be out of the cold in the north.
Marjorie was predeceased by her husband, Horace J. Haines, in 1994 and an infant son and daughter.
Survivors are her three sons, Horace “Skip” Haines and his wife, Rosemary, of Granville, David Haines and his wife, Marian, of Albany, and Michael P. Haines and his wife, Mary, of Granville; and two daughters, Kathleen Cress and her husband, David, of Branchport and Nancy Makepeace and her companion, John Rozell, of Granville. She is also survived by one brother, John T. McDonough of Bridgeville, Del. In addition she is survived by 10 grandchildren, Leigh, Brian and Steven Haines, Sarah Nielsen, Sydney and Tim Makepeace and Amanda, Michael, Natalie and Cole Haines; along with 12 great-grandchildren and several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Marjorie also leaves behind her longtime companion and best friend Walter Everett.
