Marjorie LaRoque Russell



Marjorie LaRoque Russell, a former resident of Medford, passed away in Roseburg, Ore., on September 21, 2007.

She was born in Hinsdale, Mont., on May 4, 1921 to Joseph and Mabel Anderson. Marjorie lived many years in Redding, Calif., before moving to Medford to be closer to her family.



She is survived by her daughter, and son-in-law, Laverne and Don Moran, of Auburn, Calif.; her son and daughter-in-law, Larry and Wilda Laroque; two sisters, Merilyn Cox, of Redding, Calif., and Eileen Jensen, of Brookings; three grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.



Although she enjoyed needlework, crafts, gardening and oil painting, her greatest joy was being a grandmother, both with her own and as a volunteer with the Foster Grandparent Programs in Redding and Medford. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her.



Graveside services will be held at Roseburg Memorial Gardens on October 1, 2007 at 2:00 p.m.
