Marjorie Whah, 88, of Clarks Summit, died Friday morning at home after an illness. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 58 years, Peter Whah, on Jan. 28, 2011.

Born in Old Forge on Dec. 12, 1926, daughter of the late Nathaniel and Elsie Finkley Smith, Marjorie attended Old Forge High School. She worked in the local silk mills before raising her family. A Sunday School teacher for 30 years, she was a member of Countryside Community Church in Ransom.

Marjorie enjoyed attending craft fairs with her sister, Doris, where they would sell their crafts. An avid traveler who loved vacations, she also enjoyed entertaining her family and friends on the holidays. She adored her home, her family and any opportunity to babysit. Passing away surrounded by her loving family, she will be dearly missed.

She is survived by her daughter, Sandy Scanlon, Clarks Summit; her sister, Doris Greer, Old Forge; two grandchildren, Devin Scanlon, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; and Maggie Scanlon, Philadelphia; and many nieces and nephews.

She was also preceded in death by brothers, Raymond, John and Nathaniel Smith; and a sister, Jean Jenkins.

Her family would like to thank the entire staff of Traditional Home Health & Hospice for the tremendous care given to Marjorie throughout her illness.
