It is with great sadness that today we mourn the loss of our Mother, Grandmother and friend.
Marjorie Lucille Nielsen Brookhouser was born on April 1, 1925 in Nebraska and died peacefully at the age of 95 on May 19, 2020 in Deming, New Mexico.
Marjorie was predeceased by her loving husband LaVerne Thomas Brookhouser, her parents, two brothers , son Thomas, son in law Vance, daughter in law Fran, two grandchildren Bobby Dean and Daisy and many other family members and friends.
Together Marjorie and Vern had 8 children. Dan Brookhouser(Fran), Sandy Hastings(Vance), Tom Brookhouser(Nadine), Fred Brookhouser(Robin), Mike Brookhouser(Bernadette), Ruth Kemp(Jason), Tina Lunschen(John), and Bobby Brookhouser(Lori). Together they had 27 grandchildren, 48 great grandchildren and 7 great-great grandchildren. Marjorie also leaves behind many other family and friends.
Marjorie's family was her pride and joy. She loved when she would get pictures and spent her time telling stories about each of those people in them. She leaves behind a legacy of her kind spirit and her love of baking and crafting which will live on through her family. Marjorie always had a smile on her face and kind words for others. Marjorie loved spending time with her family and friends but always enjoyed the company of the love of her life Vern. They were best friends, kind to each other and together truly loved their family. She would always put her forehead to yours and tell you to look in the mirror, give yourself a hug and that was a hug from her and grandpa. She will be missed by all that knew and loved her and our prayer is that she will finally see all the memories she left with us.
Our family wishes to thank all of her caregivers at Mimbres Memorial Hospital and Nursing home. They helped us understand this disease she was left to endure Alzheimers. They took sweet care of our momma and grandmother and for this we are truly greatful. Thank you Baca's Funeral Home of Deming, especially Ronnie and Anna for providing her with care and dignity in the final moments her body is left on this earth. Finally, we wish to thank Mountainview Funeral Home in Lakewood, WA where she will have her final resting place next to our Daddy and Grandpa.
Until we see you again we love you, we will miss you but we are happy for you....rest peacefully Mom, Grandma.
