Marjorie Schapiro (Baker), 78, passed away in her home in Woodstock, IL on October 30, 2023.
Marjorie was born September 30, 1945 to Frank Muncie Baker and Gertrude Friendship Baker (Barker) in Allegany, PA.
She is survived by her two children, Linda DeMauro (Schapiro) and Irv Schapiro, Jr., her sister, Laura Shallcross (Baker) as well as her five grandchildren; Shannon Geer (Ayers), Mark Griffin Jr., Melayna Smaistrla (Griffin), Ashley and Jesse Schapiro and nine great-granchildren; Corban, Ranen, Naeman, and Arowyn Geer and Lowdyn, Paxtyn, Eastyn, and Rensyn Smaistrla and Stella Schapiro.
She was affectionately called Marge, Maggie, Mom, Sister, Grams, and Nana.
Marge was a quick-witted, sarcastic, strong-minded and stubborn woman. She knew what she wanted and wouldn’t let anyone get in her way. She loved fiercely, even if you didn’t know it all the time.
She was an avid bingo player and lottery card buyer. She always had big plans for what she would do if she won the big one! She loved her cat Pei.
She found joy in shopping around for little gifts or drinking a strong cup of coffee and of course, her favorite meal of liver (no onions) with a baked potato, extra butter and sour cream. Over the years, she made countless lasagnas for family gatherings and holiday meals. She never came empty handed; whether it a suitcase to have a sleepover with the kids or a little toy to share or ingredients to cook a favorite meal.
She lived alone for most of her adult life, but enjoyed the company of family and friends. She almost always would call on your birthday to sing you “Happy Birthday” and birthday cards were practically never late. Her signature line was “Love you always and forever” in the most unique left-handed cursive.
Thank you for being apart of our lives. We love you always and forever.
