Marjorie Ann 'Marge' Hufendick

Marjorie Ann 'Marge' Hufendick, age 88, of Good Samaritan Home, formerly of 714 East Brennan Drive and Sutter, died on Thursday, June 11, 2020 in Quincy, Illinois. She was born on July 14, 1931 in Quincy, the daughter of Mathias and Esther Obert. She married Loren Hufendick on June 15, 1957. He died on October 6, 1993.

Marjorie attended St. Michael's School. She worked at Motorola before attending Gem City Business College. She was a secretary at Tri-State Motor Company and later worked at Quincy People's Savings and Loan until her marriage. She and Loren raised their family on a small farm in Sutter, Illinois. Marjorie was a stay-at-home mom until their four children were in school. She enjoyed working in her garden-especially the strawberry patch-canning many vegetables and making her family home-cooked meals.
She was later a clerical aide for Sutter Elementary School where she worked for five years until its closing. She also worked for County Market, preparing and promoting their products by offering samples to customers. In addition, Marjorie sold wedding invitations and supplies for over 35 years.
She was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Warsaw, Illinois and St. Mary's Catholic Church in Hamilton, Illinois until her husband's death in 1993. Marjorie then moved to Quincy where she was an active member of St. Francis Solanus Catholic Church. She was involved in the Ladies of St. Francis Society, St. Francis Funeral Choir, Legion of Mary Auxiliary, Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary, Quincy Cursillo (#133) and Auxiliary (#204). Marjorie was involved in Fourth Day Renewals and the Quincy Deanery Ladies Blanket Project where she enjoyed making comforters to give to charity. She organized a Christmas Card Shower for St. Francis parishioners who were in nursing homes which brought in over 2,000 cards each year. Marjorie was in the St. Vincent DePaul Outreach Society where she designed and sent cards to parishioners for various occasions.

Her greatest joys were her strong Catholic faith and her marriage to Loren. She had especially fond memories of their 25th Wedding Anniversary in 1982 when they renewed their wedding vows and celebrated with family and friends. Marjorie was a "people person" who brought fun and laughter to everyone she met along life's way. She cherished every moment she spent with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, family, and friends.

Marjorie is survived by four children: Kent (Denise) Hufendick and Kelvin (Nancy) Hufendick of Ursa; Keith (DeAnna) Hufendick of Jacksonville, Illinois; and Mary "Kay" (Randall) Knight of Ursa.

Ten grandchildren: Sara (D.J.) Knuffman of Liberty, Illinois; Rachel (Jared) Schlipman of Ursa; Anna (Keith) Stewart of Springfield, Illinois; Amie (Clifton) Hake of Richview, Illinois; Ryan (Jackie) Hufendick of Mahomet, Illinois; Jason Hufendick of New York, NY; Brandon Hufendick of Baltimore, Maryland; Aaron Hufendick of Jacksonville, Illinois; Marissa Knight and her fiancée Ryan Gilker of Ursa; and Ross Knight and his fiancé Kacie Koch of Mendon, Illinois. Great-grandchildren: Lauren, Drew, and Beau Knuffman of Liberty; Emmett and Monroe Schlipman of Ursa; Parker and Carter Stewart of Springfield; Rollie and Ella Hake of Richview; Savannah Hufendick of Mahomet; Nolan and Kaylan Gilker of Ursa.


Brothers: Richard Obert of Quincy; Robert (Jane) Obert of Liberty, Paul (Carol) Obert of Gibson City, Illinois;, Alvin 'Butch' (Dorothy) Obert of Camp Point, Illinois; and sister, Carol Vogel of Quincy.

In addition to her husband, Marjorie was preceded in death by her brother, Donald Obert and his wife Anna Mae Obert; brother-in-law, Ronald Vogel; and sister-in-law, Dolores Obert.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, June 16, 2020 at 10:30 AM in St. Francis Catholic Church. Interment in Calvary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Francis Catholic Church or Good Samaritan Home Activity Fund. The Duker & Haugh Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
