Marjorie Null, 98, of Terre Haute, passed away March 6, 2017, at Springhill Village. She was born in Terre Haute, on May 21, 1918, to Homer Brandon and Ethel Richey Brandon.
Marjorie was a Christian lady and attended Barbour Avenue United Methodist Church and Maryland Community Church.
She was preceded in death by her husband, John Null; her parents; brothers, Art, Bill and Homer Brandon; and her sister, Sarah Milner.
She is survived by her sons, Joe Null (Pat) of Ellettsville, Don Null (Annora) of Terre Haute and Russell Null (Nancy) of St. Augustine, Fla.. She also is survived by eight grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and six great-great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
She had a great unconditional love for her family and friends. She was very creative and loved to have parties and play all kinds of games. Every Christmas she had new and fun ways to celebrate together either at her home or at Deming Park Torner Center. Sometimes we had to play the "silly games" before she would allow the grandchildren to open even one gift. When the grandchildren were young, she sewed many outfits for them and made several clown suits for Halloween-even a couple of adult sized ones for her grown up kids.
She was an outstanding cook and made the most beautiful and tasty meringue topped pies and her Italian Cream Cake was a favorite. She shared a birthday with two of her grandchildren so there were multiple cakes on those occasions. She was a gracious hostess for most of the holiday dinners even when her home was very small. She expected all the family members-old and young to be there. Marjorie was definitely the Matriarch of our family.
During her younger years, she worked various places including The Readmore Bookstore, Unique Printing, Packard Shirt Company, Chesty Potato Chips, and also as a church secretary at Barbour Avenue U.M. Church. In later years, she was a foster grandparent at Rea Elementary School, Fugua Elementary School, and Gibault Home. After finally retiring in her 80s, she moved to Shady Oak Village and then at age 92 moved again to Springhill Village, where she lived until the present time.
The entire family wishes to express our extreme gratitude for the loving care and concern that the nurses and staff at Springhill Village gave to Marjorie during her seven years as a resident there. We will never be able to thank you enough.
