Marjorie Ruth Wickers (Gannett) 87 of Exeter, NH fell asleep in death on March 29, 2019. She died quietly and peacefully at the High Pointe Hospice House in Haverhill, MA.
Marjorie was born to the late Paul and Jesse Gannett on October 27, 1931, in Cohasset, MA. She grew up in Scituate, MA until her sophomore year when the family moved to Manchester-by-the-Sea. She graduated from Manchester High School in 1948. Marjorie is survived by her five children, Anna Wickers of Ventura, CA; Robert of Manchester, NH, George of Red Cliff, CO, Stephan of Beverly, MA and Thomas of Vieques, PR. Marjorie was a quite a curious girl/woman, as a young child she always wanted to know why? As a young mother living in Beverly, MA in the early 1950's, a Russian Jew, Isaac Tanner and his sweet little wife Bertha came to her door with the Watchtower and Awake magazines. She would invite them in but had trouble understanding Isaac because of the thick accent but she discerned that the answers to her questions were found in God's Word the Holy Scriptures. Why are we here? What is the purpose of life? Why do people suffer and die? Most importantly that God's name was Jehovah! It wasn't until 1959 she had a Bible Study to prove to herself that indeed this was 'the truth'. Marjorie dedicated her life Jehovah God in 1962 in Baltimore, MD. She deeply cared about people, especially the lowly and disadvantage. She had her ups and down just like most of God's people never let go of her of Jehovah. To the end she proved her integrity.
A memorial service will be held at the PEABODY Kingdom Hall, 79 Endicott St., Peabody, MA, on April 20, 2019, at 3:00 P.M.
