Marjorie L. Conklin
June 30, 1921 March 15, 2015 

Marjorie L. Conklin, 93, passed away at her home Sunday, March 15, 2015, in Springfield, Mo. She was born June 30, 1921, in Genesee Depot, to Ira and Mary (Rossbauch) Smart.

Marjorie was a lovely woman who successfully blended a family, making it so strong, that generations later, the bond is seamless and unbreakable between her surviving family. This wisdom she readily shared with others through her compassionately spoken words of wisdom that will also stand the test of time.

She exuded not only an internal beauty, but a fun-loving nature as well. She had a joy of celebration and life, loved to dance with her husband of 60 years, enjoyed annual family picnics with near 60 attendees for many decades, relished traveling and cherished her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, family and friends.

Preceding her in death were her husband, John; parents; children, Helen (Conklin) Bull, David Conklin, Sue Conklin, Jim Peterreins and Warren French; and other extended family members.

Marjorie is survived by her children, Karen Peterreins, John (Rosann) Conklin, Kenneth (Nora) Conklin, Connie French, Judy (Vince) Bavisotto and Richard Bull, and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and other family and friends.

Memorial services will be held Saturday, March 28, at 2 P.M. in Klingner-Cope Family Funeral Home at Rivermonte Chapel, 4500 S. Lone Pine, Springfield, Mo.
