Rupp, Marjorie Ann,
Our beloved mother and grandmother passed away January 14, 2016 at Saginaw Senior Care. She was 87 years old. Marjorie was born in Bay City, Michigan, September 18, 1928, to the late Henry and Martha Marie (Gross) Boehm. She was baptized, confirmed and married at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Bay City. She married Frederick S. Rupp of Saginaw on September 24, 1949. They were married for fifty years in 1999. Her husband passed away June 19, 2000. She retired from Heritage High School after 18 years. She was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church, the Ladies Society and the senior choir. She loved participating in the Boar’s Head Festival at church. She said singing made her feel close to God and hopes to sing in His heavenly choir one day. She was an avid reader of Christian novels and loved going to lunch with friends after Thursday Braille and after church on Sundays. “My friends were my life, as was my dear family. We had great times and fond memories.”
Surviving are her daughter Kathleen Ann (Kate) Logston, husband Douglas and their children, Justin and Megan Logston of Loveland, Colorado and her son Brock Henry, wife Vicki and their children, Derek and Cameron Rupp of Saginaw. Besides her parents and husband, she was pre-deceased by a son Mark Aaron.
Funeral service will take place 11:00 a.m. Friday, January 22, 2016 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 808 Weiss Street, Saginaw, Michigan. Pastor Michael Korte will officiate with entombment to follow in Oakwood Mausoleum. Friends may call at Snow Funeral Home, 3775 N. Center Rd., (between Shattuck and McCarty) where the family will be present Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and at the church on Friday from 10:00 a.m. until time of service. A funeral luncheon will take place at the church, offered by the Bethlehem Ladies Society, following the committal service.
The family extends heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the staff of Saginaw Senior Care for their years of thoughtful care and kindness and also to Hospice of Michigan for their gentle care during her final days.
