Marjorie Avis Pierce, age 90 of Colfax, died Sunday, April 8, 2018 at Nelson Manor Nursing Home in Newton.

Marj was such a wonderful person. I've known her since I was 10 when her parents moved to the farm just west of us. Her sister, Marilyn, took me to activities at the country school where Marj taught and that was quite an experience from the big school of MINGO!!! Then when Marj was expecting Steve, Marilyn and I helped count her contractions before she'd agree to go to the hospital! Then when my 2 brothers and I lived out-of-state she allowed my parents to become surragate grandparents to her 5 children as my parents and her parents were very good friends. She will be missed.
