Marjorie Russer Obituary

Daughter of the late Wayne & Mary Jane (Warren) Wight. Sister to the late Millie Goldstone, Mary Jane Pia, Muriel Rouch and late Warren Wight. Married for over 56 years to the love of her life, Richard Russer, who passed away on June 20, 2023.  Mother to Michael (Lynette) and Murry (Michael) Hooper.  Grandmother to Chloe Hooper (Kevin Farnand), Brett Hooper, Leia (Seth) Gehrking & Derek (Cassidy) Fuoco.  Sister-in-law to Marsha Mitelli, Lisa Reagan and Laurie Hoh. Aunt to so many nieces and nephews.  Business owner and founder since 1991 of Coldwater Insulation, Inc. Her wishes were to have no services and for everyone to enjoy their lives.

After a long battle with dementia and a broken heart with the passing of her beloved husband, Margie finally is at peace on her husband’s birthday and the last full moon of the year. She waited until the exact day that her husband took his 1st breath to take her last breath. Such a poetic ending.

An angel has left us. A beautiful blonde who married a renegade and raised a family on a farm is off on her next adventure. She was the most selfless person we will ever know.  Took care of everyone and everything.  We will all have a hole in our heart with her passing. She had a passion for knowledge, nostalgia, history, and life. Read dictionaries, collected anything and everything, and would cause a traffic jam on a major highway to read a historical marker. Knew every cobblestone house in the county and probably visited them all.  Was always up for anything. Swim across a Finger Lake? Okay!  Ride a horse on a dude ranch in Montana?  Giddy up! Stay at a villa in Tuscany? Still mad she never did. There’s not a board game she wouldn’t play. No trivia was too mundane. Books on bugs, flowers, trees etc filled her space. All showed her zest for life. Even as her ailments took their toll, you could feel that if Margie could have only one of her senses left, to remind her that she was still here, she’d endure. Do I hear my kids? Grandkids? Sisters? Friends? Is that Leon Redbone singing to me? It’s great to be alive! Her flame may be extinguished but her enthusiasm for life will live in all of us forever!
