Obituary: Marjorie Fay Darby

Marjorie Fay Darby (3/31/35-9/12/18) went home to be with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ after struggling with health issues for some time. She received excellent care at a Christian facility in Paulden, Arizona. Marjorie was born in Glendale, Arizona, where she attended Glendale Union High School. She received both a Bachelor’s Degree and a Master’s Degree from Arizona State University.

While she spent 28 years teaching elementary children, that was preceded by 11 years working at the First National Bank. Marjorie was an accomplished artist as well, and her paintings continue to be enjoyed by family members. The Lord gave her a beautiful soprano voice, which she used to glorify God in the church choir. Upon her retirement she moved to Prescott, Arizona, where she was a member of the First Baptist Church.

Marjorie is preceded in death by her parents, H.R. Darby and Violet Darby; and B. Jack Darby (brother). She is survived by her brother, John R. Darby (wife Sandra); nephews, Phillip Darby (wife Nancy), Rick Darby (wife Deborah); niece, Michelle Darby; great-nephews, Steven and Dakota Darby; and great-nieces, Morgan and Nevah Darby.

A memorial service will be held at Chapel of the Chimes, 7924 N. 59th Ave., Glendale, Arizona, at 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 4.
