A longtime pillar of the Moosic United Methodist Church, she formerly served as church treasurer, on the church’s Official Board, and in the church’s Mizpah Class.

She was also preceded by her siblings, Harry Emerson Carter, George Russell Carter and Dr. Donald Lee Carter, M.D.
Her family wishes to thank the entire staffs of both Scranton Health Care Center and Hospice of the Sacred Heart for their compassionate and loving care given to both them and Marjorie through the years.
