Obituary

Marjorie Irene Berry, 78, of Dorothy, passed away of natural causes on April 24, 2021, at home, surrounded by her loved ones. She was born to Russell and Irene Olsen on February 23, 1943 and raised in Pleasantville. She graduated Pleasantville High School in 1961, worked at Prudential, was a member of the Scullville Ladies Auxiliary and Line Dancing Crew.

With her strong will and determination, Marjorie defied all medical diagnosis as she lived a long life filled with love and joy. Our “Medical Miracle” loved spending time with husband Jack of 58 years, boating, country line dancing and attending Cruisin Night Car Club events. She was always up for a game of cards with anyone willing. Most of all she loved to spend time with her children and grandchildren of which were her life’s pride and joy. Anytime with family was time well spent.

She will be fondly remembered for her ability to make a welcoming home. When you came in once, you were welcomed into the family forever.

She is survived by her husband John A. Berry, Jr., children John A. Berry III (Linda), Marjorie Irene Mangold (Michael), Russell William Berry (Carolyn), Dorothy-Jo Ayres (Brian); grandchildren Caitlin Laskow (Gregg), John A. Berry IV, Amber Berry, Nick Mangold, Melissa Helman (Clark), Rick Mangold, Brian Ayres, Jr., three great-grandchildren Madison, Hudson & Ehmet; siblings Alice Arlan, Linda Norberg (Richard), Russell Olsen (Doris), Harold Olsen (Elizabeth). Marjorie is predeceased by her parents Axel Russell & Irene May Olsen.

In 1947, after World War Two had ended, my family and I left Norway to start a new life in America. Fortunately, we had family in America. My mother's brother, Olav Fagerheim, helped arrange our Visas and Passports and my father's first job was with the Fagerheim and Olsen Construction Company owned and operated by Olav Fagerheim and Russell Olsen –– Margie Olsen Berry's father. I was seven and Margie almost four at the time we arrived in the U.S.A. It didn't take us long to feel at home, however. Even Margie's father was a relative. His mother, Magna Pedersen Olsen, was the sister of my mother's father. Soon we built our home on Nevada Avenue a short walk from the Olsen home where Margie grew up. Years later we moved, went our separate ways, but I still recall, even as a child, Margie's smile, sense of humor, and winning personality. My sympathies and thoughts with those Margie has left behind.
