Marjorie J. Vance

October 1, 2017

Marjorie Jean Hodges Vance, age 93, of Eau Claire passed away on Sunday, October 1, 2017.

She was born September 10, 1924, to Joseph and Carrie Hodges. On July 18, 1943, Marjorie married George Carl Vance and resided in the Chippewa Falls, Altoona, and Eau Claire area throughout their 57 years of marriage.

“Marge” and George maintained many wonderful friendships through the years.  Family and friends have warm memories of gatherings, where meals included “favorites” for their guests.  Boxes of home-baked cookies and hand-crafted gifts were mailed to loved ones far away because Marge had such a loving and generous heart.  Many hours of her life were spent making quilts or sewing rag strips to be made into rugs, items still cherished by her family.  Marge was attentive, truly interested and caring towards those she loved.  Marge also loved many dogs during her lifetime, and in her later years, especially appreciated “visits” from Mona and Cindy, her special doggie friends.

In addition to her parents, Marjorie was preceded in death by her husband, George Vance; son, Laurin Vance; brothers, Stanley and James Hodges; sister, Shirley Hodges Stavnaw.  Survivors include her son, Allen Vance of Mineral, Washington; daughter, Luanne (Bob) LeHew of Altoona; daughter-in-law, Louise Vance of Hayward, Wisconsin; brother, Donald (Wilma) Hodges of Eau Claire; sister, Muriel Brown of Eau Claire; five grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

Thank you to Dove Healthcare--West for giving Marjorie quality care and showing her compassion while she stayed there.
