Marjorie Ann "Marjie" Williams, 89, of Sagamore Beach, formerly of Stoughton, passed away on January 16, 2024. She was born in Beverly, MA to the late Alfred E. Spalding and Dorothy A. (Nichols) Spalding.
Marjorie, also known as Marjie, Marge, and Nonnie, was a loving, devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Marjie attended Stoughton Public Schools (was promoted twice) and graduated class of 1951. She was known for her intelligence, talents, kindness, and generosity.
While still in High School, and for a period after graduation, Marjie began working as a Librarian's Assistant for the Stoughton Public Library. She met her 'soulmate' James W. Williams Jr. while in High School and they were married in 1955, shortly after Jim's return home from Korea. Marjorie's life revolved around her husband’s and that of their two children. Once the two boys were into High School, Marjie returned to work again at the "new" Stoughton Public Library in 1974, staying on the job for another 18 years, retiring in 1992 with 20 years’ service. In her free time, Marjie enjoyed reading books, engaging in all sorts of crafts, photography, and lots of baking. She found joy in these activities and often shared her many baked creations, especially her Snickerdoodles and “Kitchen Sink” Cookies, with family and friends.
Marjie and Jimmie also went on many road trips together, with Jim marching, and Marjie photographing their adventures with the Grenadiers of Stoughton, and then all over the USA while with the Aleppo Shriner's marching units.
Marjorie is survived by her son, Radcliffe D. Williams, and his wife, Ann P. Williams, her grandson Matthew Williams, and his wife Shelby, and her granddaughter Marissa Williams and her fiancé Chris McCusker. Marjorie was recently predeceased by her husband James W. Williams Jr., and preceded in death by her son, James W. Williams III, her father Alfred E. Spalding, and her mother Dorothy A. Spalding.
The family would like to thank the outstanding caring staff of the All-American Assisted Living in Wareham, MA who opened their home and their hearts to make Marjie's past 9 month's living there, a most wonderful experience.
