Marjorie L. Woolstenhulme
Marjorie Louise Mobbs Woolstenhulme, 92, was called home by her loving Heavenly Father, Wednesday, May 30, 2018. Midge, as she was known by her family and friends, passed away peacefully at Sensations Memory Care of natural causes. She was born August 14, 1925 in Exeter, N.H. to Karl and Gladys Mobbs. She proudly served her country in the United States Navy where she met and married Lynn J. Woolstenhulme October of 1952. Through the many years of her husband’s military transfers and deployments, Midge never lost her love for adventure, sense of humor, or her New Hampshire accent.
Midge had many jobs, but her two favorites were, town librarian in Bakersfield, Vt. and working as a hospice volunteer. She loved to sew, garden and visiting with people. She actively served in various capacities for her church, always putting the needs of others before herself.
Midge is preceded in death by her by husband of 56 years, and one daughter, Janise Witkowski (Thomas) of Tooele, Utah.
She is survived by two sisters, Doris Kleinheitz (Herman) of Kentucky, Edith Belanger (Edward) of New Hampshire; daughters, Yvonne King (Gary) of Charlotte, Karen Morales (David) of Gresham, Ore., Sandra Woolstenhulme of Grand Ledge; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. All of whom she loved deeply.
Midge spent the last two years living at Sensations Memory Care in Charlotte. Our family would like to thank all the staff from Sensations and Great Lakes Caring Hospice for the wonderful compassionate care they shared with our mum making sure she was most comfortable in her final days.
