HELPER - Marjorie Jane Nelson Kirkwood Petersen, age 83, passed away Dec. 8, 2005 at her home.

As a young girl she worked on the family ranch in Canon City and later moved to Leadville where she helped with the family furniture store. After that she began working for D&RGW Railroad as a telegraph operator during World War II. She came to Utah where she worked in Sanpete County for a while, and then transferred to Kyune where she met and married Earl Pete Kirkwood on Oct. 2, 1945 in Elko, Nev.
