Marjorie Escover, 90 years young, passed away on Sunday, January 26, 2020 in the loving home of her daughter Barbara and son-in-law Terry Putnam of Emmett, Idaho.
She recently moved to Emmett, Idaho from Prineville, Oregon in September of last year to live with and be cared for by her daughter Barbara.
She loved to sew, garden, paint and wallpaper her many residences. She enjoyed working on jigsaw puzzles and shopping local thrift stores for that special find. She thoroughly enjoyed working on her Search Word books, which she had in every room of the house, in every purse or tote or in the cars she rode in.
She loved cats whether they were hers, of which there were many, or yours. Many cats grew very fond of her, and she loved every minute with them. She loved flowers and anything with a floral pattern, and it shown throughout her many homes, she really really loved to move and lived in many towns and states.
She loved to dance.
She was a very charitable person to all her friends, neighbors, and of course her family.
She was a a bit of a scrapper, keeping her younger siblings in line in the back woods of Missouri where they were all born.
She originally moved to Prineville in the mid 1970's and loved living there for over forty years.
In recent years she fought a brave battle with breast and lymphoma cancer of which she succumbed to and passed peacefully in her sleep.
She was preceded in death by her parents James and June Wilson and all of her siblings, George Wilson, Laverne Wilson-Barnes, Kenneth Wilson, Carl Wilson, Shirley Wilson-Staggs, Wanda Wilson, Wilma Wilson and Lawrence Wilson. As well as her youngest daughter Teresa Lynn Wallace-Caporale and a granddaughter Carrie Lynn Lowman.
