Margaret Elizabeth Marlowe passed away peacefully early in the morning of June 21, 2022 at the age of 93. Appropriately, this January born woman had the Jersey shore in her bones and left us on the first day of summer, her favorite time of year. She was relatively healthy most of her 93 years and enjoyed a very special relationship with her granddaughters Marlee Katlyn McDonald -Yepes and Madison (Madie) Marlowe Adkins and their husbands Sebastian Yepes and Michael Adkins, all of whom she fiercely loved. When Mimi became a great grandmother in 2020 to Lulette Rose McDonald-Yepes, her heart grew bigger and she danced for days!
Ma was born in Manville, NJ on January 16, 1929 and was predeceased by her parents John Shutack and Mary Singel Shutack. Having survived all of her siblings (John Shutack, Marie Urbanowicz, Evelyn Evanylo and Helen Plaskon), Aunt Margie was the one remaining Shutack family member with whom her nieces and nephews could connect and she grew close to many of them over the years especially Suzanne (Michael) Ridgeley, MaryBeth (Cliff) Garside, Brian (Lora) Plaskon, Lisa (Kenny) Spiller and Greg (Lisa) Evanylo.
Marge was an active member of Hatboro Baptist Church in Hatboro, PA for many years prior to moving to Norfolk, VA in 1999. She then attended First Presbyterian Church
and participated in many of the programs for seniors.
She is survived by her children: Sharon Marlowe McDonald and son-in-law, Dave McDonald of Norfolk, VA; her son Edward E. Marlowe, III and daughter-in-law, Lori Williams of Ivyland, PA; and daughter Lynn Marlowe of Norfolk, VA.
In accordance with her wishes the family will hold a memorial service at a later date.
We wish to thank the medical professionals who cared for our mom during the past several years especially, Dr. Thomas R. Grant, Jr and crew at Ghent Family Medicine and the team at Lake Taylor Transitional Care Hospital.
If desired, contributions in her memory can be made to the Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro, VA or the Norfolk SPCA as she loved cats of all shapes and sizes.
We will miss her physical presence but we are thankful for the many years we enjoyed with her.
Have a peaceful transition, Muz. We love you!
