Marjorie Elaine Hurley, 61

O n February 28, 2012 Marjorie Elaine Hurley passed away at Glens Falls Hospital following a long illness.

Marge was born on Feb. 4, 1951 in Rupert, Vt.,  the daughter of the late Stanley and Mary C. (Hicks) Hurley.

Marge was an avid sports fan, especially Dallas Cowboy football. She was very supportive of local sports, watching her son and grandchildren through the years, and was even in attendance at local sporting events even when she had no family involved.  She was an Elvis fan to the end. Marge was no stranger to hard work. She worked three jobs at some points in her life, but she loved her job at GE which she held for 38 years. Never one to be idle. Marge adored her grandchildren and always wanted the best for them.

Marge is survived by her son William L. Jones. She is survived by her two grandchildren Nathan Allen and Elisabeth Jones.  Marge is also survived by her sisters Mary Ramey and her husband Brian, and Joanne Reid and her husband James, and her brothers Stanley (Bug), George, Douglas and Daniel Hurley, as well as many nieces and nephews.  She also leaves behind her good friends Joanne Parker and Jackie Jones.

The family wishes to extend a thank-you to the nurses of the Glens Falls Hospital for their wonderful care of not only Marge but the family as well.

The funeral service will be held on Friday, March 9, 2012, at 6 p.m. at the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville,  with the Rev. Robert Flower officiating. Friends may call from 5 p.m. until the time of the service. A continuation of the celebration of Marge’s life will be held at the American Legion Post on Columbus Street.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Marge’s memory to the Haynes House of Hope, 7187 SR 149, Granville, NY 12832 or to the CR Wood Cancer Center, in care of Glens Falls Hospital, Allen Street, Glens Falls, NY 12801.
