Marjorie Spivey Obituary

Marjorie Spivey, a beacon of unwavering faith and boundless love, passed away peacefully on March 30, 2024, in Rentz, Georgia, at the age of 77. Born on August 17, 1946, in Dublin, Georgia, she was the cherished daughter of Tom and Nellie Wood Spivey, both of whom preceded her in death.

Marjorie's life was a testament to her loving nature and her deep commitment to her family. She was a devoted mother to her son, Chad (Selene) Sapp, and daughter, Felicia (Jeff) Alligood. Her joy was multiplied through the lives of her beloved grandchildren, Chase (Katie) Sapp and Makayla Sapp, and she was blessed to see the birth of her great-grandson, Bowe Sapp. Marjorie's love extended to her siblings, Linda Purdee, Sylvia Jones, Romaree (Larry) Douglas, Elizabeth (Clayton) Tanner, Judy Savage, Jean Graham, Samuel Spivey, Manuel (Melanie) Spivey, and Joseph Spivey, all of whom will fondly remember her nurturing spirit. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews.

Professionally, Marjorie served her community as a former admissions clerk at Fairview Park Hospital, where she was known for her warmth and empathy. She greeted everyone with a smile that could light up the room and offered comfort to those in need. Her colleagues and patients alike will remember her as a pillar of kindness and professionalism.

A woman of deep religious conviction, Marjorie was a long-standing member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church and often attended Rentz Baptist Church. Her faith was the cornerstone of her existence. She loved the Lord with all her heart and soul, and this love was evident in every aspect of her life. Marjorie was an active participant in bible study groups and was known as a prayer warrior, always believing in the transformative power of prayer. Her readiness to share a bible verse with those in need, and her willingness to share her testimony, were sources of inspiration and comfort to many.

Marjorie's card ministry was one of her most cherished endeavors. Through it, she encouraged countless friends and family members, offering words of hope and encouragement. Her headstrong and purposeful nature ensured that she made a meaningful impact on those around her, guiding them through their darkest times with a gentle hand and a steadfast heart.

Described by those who knew her as loving, thoughtful, and faith-filled, Marjorie's legacy is one of compassion and unwavering support. Her ability to listen, her eagerness to share wisdom, and her unshakable belief in the goodness of people have left an indelible mark on the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing her.
