Marjorie Cameron

Marjorie Cameron was a longtime resident of La Crescenta. A beautiful person and loving mother, she was preceded in death by her husband, Donald, and daughter, Linda. She is survived by her daughter Susan Cameron Kelley, her son James Cameron, a son Steven Cameron, five grandchildren, one great-grandson, nieces, nephews and grandnieces and grandnephews.
“Margie,” as she was known to her friends, was a devoted member of the La Cañada Presbyterian Church, where she served as church secretary, attended Bible study and was active in Pathfinders and Seafarers. In her early years, she worked as a financial administrator and continued with a career in the legal field well into her 80s. She started at her daughter’s law firm in the 1990s and managed it until she was confident Susan could take over. She was always eager to see new places and do new things. She traveled the world with family and friends from church. She was proud of the fact that she smuggled Bibles into China in the1990’s. In most recent years, she spent the Christmas holidays with Jim and Karla and Susan and family in Maui, Hawaii. Her favorite past times were Sunday brunch with her friends and niece after church, going to the movies, powerlifting and attending USC home football games. Her past two years at home were a blessing made possible by her loving children, Susan and Jim, and niece Delphie. She was much loved and will be greatly missed.
A memorial service celebrating her life will be held on Saturday, March 18, at 2 p.m., at the La Cañada Presbyterian Church.
