Marjorie L. Foreman, age 97 of Marion, passed away on Monday, December 30, 2019 at Wesleyan Health Care Center in Marion.

Marjorie was born on September 24, 1922 in Marion, Indiana the daughter of the late John and Minnie (Garrison) Denton.  She married Bobby L. Foreman on March 24, 1947.  They were the owners and founders of Foreman & Son’s Marathon, which has been a family business since 1963. 

Marjorie was a devoted wife and loving mother to her sons.  She was a helper in the family business, an immaculate homemaker and a great cook.  She was an avid Chicago Cubs fan and always had a listening ear.  She had a precious heart and we will miss her.  We were always welcomed to Mom’s with a Lazy-Susan full of various assortments of M&M’s!
