Marjie was born on November 25, 1948 in Biddeford, Maine to Tom and Marjorie (Sherwell) White. She graduated from Maryville College in 1970. On December 22, 1970, she and Lucas Venning Whitney were married in Greenville, SC. They raised three children, Lucas, Sarah, and Anna. Marjie enjoyed heirloom sewing and taught lessons and made and sold items in LaGrange, GA for five years. She also loved children and served 18 years as a teacher at St. Mark’s Episcopal Kindergarten in LaGrange, GA. Marjie was a member of the Altar Guild at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, as well as a part of the Eucharistic Visitors, Meals on Wheels, and Clothing Center ministries. Marjie’s family was her world. She enjoyed spending time with them for all occasions, particularly holidays and annual beach and ski trips, and she loved taking family photos and snapshots of precious memories.

Marjie was preceded in death by her parents, Tom and Marjorie White. She is survived by her husband Lucas, her son Lucas and his wife Lorri Whitney and their two children--Luke and Lilly--all of Signal Mountain, TN; her daughter Sarah and her husband Jeremiah Wojnarowski and their three children--Savannah, Gabriel, and Elijah--all of Burns, TN; and her daughter Anna and her husband Izz Noland and their son, Imran, all of Birmingham, AL; her brother Tom and sister Sally, and twelve nieces and nephews. She was also beloved by her friends and caregivers Jean Sivell and Leola Broughton and the Wellstar/West Georgia Healthcare Home Hospice team.

A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 PM January 4, 2020 at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in LaGrange, GA. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, LaGrange, GA, or Wellstar Community Hospice.

Lucas -
I was so sorry to read about Marjie's passing. I have thought of you and your family often over the years and I know your hearts ached to watch her health deteriorate. She was one of my son's teachers at St. Marks Kindergarten. I can still see her helping him into the car when I would pick him up at noon. She was a happy, loving person and I enjoyed knowing her. May God be with all of you and may the peace that passes all understanding keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Beth Daniel
