Marjorie Pithoud Black, affectionately known as Grandma B, has passed ahead into heaven. Although she will be deeply missed by her family and friends, they are comforted by the knowledge that she is in eternity with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Marjorie was born in John Day on November 17, 1939. She spent her childhood in Enterprise, Oregon. The memories she shared of her childhood in Enterprise were full of fun, family, friends, and hard work. After graduation, she attended Oregon State University on a scholarship. Marjorie had many personal and business adventures throughout her life. All of which she did with enthusiasm and love.

Marjorie is survived by her daughter, Lois Kaping and her husband, Jerry, of Bend; her daughter, Margie Lee and her husband, Clayton, of North Bonneville, Washington; her grandson, Jared Kaping, and his wife, Kelsey, of Bend; and her grandson, Nathan Kaping of Sisters. She is also survived by all of her siblings: Lois Miles of Helena, Montana; John Pithoud and his wife, Darlene, of Enterprise; David Barber and his wife, Cathy, of Maple Valley, Washington; Peggy Lindsey of Georgetown, Texas; and Steve Barber and his wife, Mary, of Camas, Washington.

All who knew Marjorie will miss her loving, joyful, inclusive passion for people and life. She was generous with kindness, friendship and affection.

Friends of Margie are invited to attend a celebration of her fantastic life. It will be held on Saturday, May 9, 4 p.m. at Westside Sisters Church, 442 N. Trinity Way, Sisters. A small graveside service will be held this summer in Enterprise.
