Marjorie D. (Folk) Fullmer Schooley, age 86, of 507 Meadow Lane, Danville, peacefully passed away at her home on Wednesday, Sept 4, 2019.
She was born on March 14, 1933 in Danville, a daughter of the late Russell and Ruth (Bingaman) Folk. A 1951 graduate of Danville High School, she had a successful career as a plant operator at Merck & Co., Riverside for 18 years. Previously she enjoyed many years working at the Danville Elks.
Marjorie's devotion to her faith and her dedication to Grove Presbyterian Church was unwavering. She served as a Sunday School teacher at Grove for 25 years. She quilted for local charities for many years while timelessly preserving the Church's sanctuary and its history in many ways. She traveled on service trips, including to Honduras and earned the distinction of being the second longest-living member of Grove.
Marjorie married Harold Fullmer, Jr of Danville in 1950. After his death, she married Dale E. Schooley in 1977 and they enjoyed over 40 years together in Danville and at their home in Riverview, Florida, where they were fortunate to spend time with great friends during the winter months. She had few peers at shuffleboard or cards. She enjoyed beating her children at Scrabble and letting her grandchildren win at other games.
She was preceded in death by her daughter, Cynthia Kay Buckenberger on July 17, 2017 and by her brother John Folk.
