PRICE-Marjorie Walker Pectol, age 69, returned to her Heavenly Father's Home on Sunday, July 14, 2013. She passed peacefully in her sleep, knowing that she would be welcomed with loving arms in our kingdom above.
She was born April 26, 1944 to Boyd and Ina Walker.
Marjorie was a loyal and devoted wife to Marion "Clark" Pectol, whom she was married to for 44 years. She was a caring mother to her two children, Jody Lee Pectol and the late Jeri Lynn Purcell. Marjorie was reunited with her daughter (Jeri Lynn) in Heaven and we are certain they are laughing and smiling together now.
Marjorie was an enthusiastic grandmother and great-grandmother who was constantly buying little trinkets for her four cherished granddaughters, Randa, Cassadie, Shawnee and Kathleen. Her smile was truly radiant when she showed off the little wonders she collected. She loved to watch her grandchildren smile and laugh at the delight of their new treasures. Her great-grandchildren loved to call her "Grandma Pickle" and she enjoyed giving them and pretty much anyone else a new nickname as well.
One of the most beautiful and amazing things about Marjorie was her capacity to love and care for others. She was well known for her big heart and everyone was family to her. She was often found nurturing sick animals or caring for pets that had been left behind.
Marjorie was a longtime resident of Price where she made many lifelong friends over the years. She truly enjoyed spending time with her B-I-N-G-O buddies at the VFW. Countless games won and whether the prize was big or small, she was overjoyed with her good luck.
Funeral service Wednesday, July 17, 2013, 11 a.m., Mitchell Funeral Hom. Family will be at Mitchell's Wednesday one hour prior to services. Arrangements entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price, Utah where friends are welcome daily and may share memories of Marjorie at www.mitchellfuneralhome.net

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
