Marjorie was born March 16, 1923, in Grand View to Harold and Gladys Bailey.
She had an younger brother, Eugene, who died many years after serving as a U.S. Army Paratrooper in WWII.
Marjorie¹s father was the postmaster in Grand View for many years and the post office was in Marjorie¹s family¹s home. After his death, his wife, Gladys, was appointed postmaster. When Gladys retired a new post office was built and the family continued to live in the old post office building.
Marjorie met Richard Hugo through a mutual friend, Dorsey Rocks. Richard was living in Boise and would travel with Dorsey to visit the Dorsey family farm in Grand View. After Richard met Marjorie, he was in Grand View as often as possible.
Marjorie graduated from Grand View High School in 1941. She moved to Boise and worked as a secretary for the Idaho State Liquor Commission. This made it easier for her and Richard to see one another. Richard served in the US
Army Air Corps four years during WWII. They were married soon after his discharge from the military.
Richard and Marjorie moved to San Jose, Calif., where Richard attended San Jose State College and Marjorie worked as a secretary in the mathematics department at the college. After graduation they moved to Southern California where Richard worked for a large manufacturing company. They
lived in California until Richard¹s retirement when they moved back to Grand View and into Marjorie¹s childhood home, the old Grand View Post Office. She has found comfort sleeping in the same bedroom she slept in as a child.
As a child, Marjorie attended the Knight Community Church in Grand View and has been a member there since returning to Grand View.
Marjorie is survived by her husband, Richard Hugo.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and her brother, Eugene.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Marjorie¹s memory to the Knight Community Church, P.O. Box 146, Grand View, ID 83649.
