Marjorie L. Shaull

Marjorie Louis Shaull, a proper lady of class, died peacefully on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 in Lansing, surrounded by her family.  Marjorie, 88, of Charlotte, was born April 21, 1929 in Detroit, the daughter of George Willis and Ruby Irene (Davis) Freed. She graduated from Charlotte High School and briefly attended Western Michigan University before marrying Richard J. Shaull and settling in Charlotte. Marjorie worked at Michigan National Bank before working side-by-side with her husband at Shaull and Shaull for over 40 years. Marjorie actively volunteered in many capacities in the Charlotte community. She worked at the youth center, in the Hayes Green Beach Hospital gift shop and delivering meals on wheels. Marjorie served as a Bluebird and Campfire leader, and was a long-time member of the First Congregational Church of Charlotte and the Blanche Moyer Circle. In her spare time, she enjoyed taking her children skiing and making them clothes, beautifully playing the piano, collecting antique dolls, and spending time at the family cottage on Duck Lake.

Marjorie is survived by daughters, Suzanne Wingate and Mary Jo McLane; son, James R. “Buzz” (Penny) Shaull; eight grandchildren, Jennifer Bakker, Ian Wingate, Amie Jo (Wally) Dowker Colon, James McLane, Michael McLane, Katie McLane, Haley (Adam) Auvenshine, Tyler Shaull, and Ashley McGilvra; five great-grandchildren with another on the way; and three great great-grandsons.

She was predeceased by her parents; husband, Richard J. Shaull in 1994; and her sister, Mary Ellen Crouse.

Per Marjorie’s wishes, a private graveside service will take place at Maple Hill Cemetery in Charlotte.

If desired, the family suggests memorial contributions to the First Congregational Church of Charlotte.
